Cross Country Skiing & Fat Tire Trail Updates

  • Michigan Tech –  A little fresh snow made for nice grooming this morning all trails groomed and tracked. Expect cold temps today as some actual winter weather starts to move into the area. Please be aware the MTU Nordic ski team will be practicing down on portions of ridge loop and racers return today. The track set in this area is a little different for this reason. (1/26/23)
  • Churning Rapids Snow Bike - We only got about an inch of snow Thursday so most trails are still in very nice shape. We groomed the Trillium - Aunt Flo loop on Thursday night to smooth out some footprints that were left when it was warm on Wednesday. Should be another great weekend to get out on the trails. (1/20/23)
  • Swedetown – Sleds went out this morning and dragged all trails except cedar and Tamarack. Husky was out working on the stadium and transition area for the Bearchase. Cedar and Tamarack were both tiller groomed and tracked. (1/25/23)
  • Swedetown Snow Bike - All loops groomed, had a couple inches fresh snow so might be a little soft until it packs down. Low tire pressure for traction. (1/25/23)
  • Keweenaw Mountain Lodge - We received a dusting of snow yesterday afternoon, which helped with grooming today. All trails groomed, and in good shape.  (1/24/23)
  • Copper Harbor - Friday's tracks are still untouched. Come, ski Copper Harbor! (1/21/23)
  • Chassell Trails-  Grooming completed just before 7. Conditions are excellent.. (1/24/23)
  • Calumet Dam Trails - The fresh snow on Lake Loop and Park Loops was rolled and combed tonight. Will try to get the Forest Loops tomorrow night. (1/25/23)
  • Maasto Hiihto & Churning Rapids -  All trails dragged & tracked. (1/25/23)
  • Boundary Road Trails -  We were out there to refresh the trails this afternoon and they turned out very, very nice. I'd call them excellent or near excellent and the best they've been this year to date. Please support our work and give a donation, using the GFM link, or if you'd care to send it directly to us, just contract us. (1/24/23)
