Cross Country Skiing & Fat Tire Trail Conditions

  • Michigan Tech – We are currently panking the snow that fell over the weekend with rollers. We are focusing our efforts on the trails that a have a good base of grass in an effort to limit the damage to our grooming equipment as well our visitors’ skis. All the trails are open for your enjoyment but please be aware of very poor, early season conditions.
  • Swedetown – The following trails were rolled: Len’s Loop, Valley, Greenstone, Cedar, Birch, Tamarack, Pine Ridge, and Tiger Loop. Expect to find typical early-season conditions with thin spots, perhaps some water in low spots (Cedar) and ruts in places–“A” skis are definitely not recommended! Grooming completed at 9:15 am.
