Cross Country Skiing Michigan

Cross Country Ski Report – Friday, Feb 8th

We’ve had some wild weather here in the north woods! Freezing ice pellets yesterday turned into snow last night, giving us 1-2 inches of fresh snow on the trail surface. Groomer Mike will work his magic on the trails throughout the day today, and we expect great conditions for the weekend. Conditions this morning will be a work in progress given the different kinds of precipitation we are working with, but all trails are open.

Weather forecast:
Today: Windy. Snow this morning will give way to snow showers this afternoon. High 17F. Winds W at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of snow 80%. Snow accumulations less than one inch. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.
Tonight: Variably cloudy with snow showers. Low near 5F. Winds W at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow 40%. Snow accumulations less than one inch.
Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy. High 19F. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph.
