Trail Reports

Crews were out today prepping our usual spots on the full 50K course and things are looking good the entire length of the trail.  A few spots to hit, as usually happens this week, but we have real snow and great base.  More snow is on the way too.  Possibly a lot of snow with […]

Our last round of snow really added to the base on the west end of the trail and conditions are currently great.  Areas out on course received anywhere between 5-12+ inches depending on the location. Our attention now turns to a 3-4 day period of above normal temperatures with the possibility of some rain/mixed precipitation […]

There was great skiing to be had over the weekend in the Forestville area. The last freeze/thaw cycle created some really firm pole plants. I got out to ski Sunday night after dark and even through the low areas and the bridges I found very good skating (a few spots of dirty snow were noted […]

We survived the warm spell although there was a bit more rain than expected at least from where we were sitting.  The deep cold returned in a very short amount of time and the re-freeze began.  This is actually a blessing in disguise as these freeze-thaw cycles can create really solid pole plants.  We are […]

A few updates on course to mention. Note that all final course details will be made available at bag pickup/ski expo on Friday Jan 26th at the Superior Dome.  The race bulletin will be final and readily available in print.  Please also note that we are in the time of year that things can change […]

Four more inches of new snow fell again overnight.  The Bombi is running to the Co Rd 510 trail head TODAY!  The rest of the NTN grooming crew is out roll packing everything from 14K down to Tourist Park.  This means if you’re in the area you can now ski Tourist Park all the way […]

The lake effect snow machine has turned on and the northerly winds have arrived which provides our area with lake effect snow – as opposed to far eastern Marquette County and Houghton County as has been the case 90% of the time up to this point.  It’s been frustrating to watch as most of the […]

We missed all of the lake effect during the cold snap – it all went to the east or west of us.  Despite that, the trails are doing quite well although the usual thin spots are thin but those are easy enough to ski around.  The base is nice and hard and the groomers are […]

Newsletter #5 is available to read here . Hope your training is going well and you didn’t overdo it this weekend like the guy writing this did…

Groomers are setting classic tracks on all NTN Forestville trails inside the 17K mark and then rolling up to the CR 510 trailhead today!  Some sections in the hemlock groves will be too thin yet for tracks…will need to get some system snow before those really heavily covered areas start to build depth. It would […]
