Trail Reports

One edit to yesterday’s trail report – head NTN groomer Andy checked the lower ponds (at 5K) and indicates they are not safe to cross.  If skiing in the area we recommend that you should not try to cross those bodies of water at this time.  You’ll note the section of ski trail down to […]

Happy New Year from the race committee! Current trail conditions are quite good with solid coverage throughout the entire marathon course and we’re feeling great about where things are at right now.  Ice conditions on the water crossings are also good at this time although the lower pond crossings in the final 5K have not […]

Skiing has been relatively good from the NTN Forestville Trailhead and the trails have held remarkably well after the extended thaw and now cooler dry period.  The base was prepped well and it’s gotten us through with good skating at least – we’ll need some good new snow before classic tracks return to really good […]

This weekends recent snow should have most of the ski trails back to great early season conditions once it’s worked in.  The snow was very, very, wet which may have taken down some limbs.  Snow in the Marquette city limits was fairly minimal at around 2 inches but as is typical the farther west, and […]

Trail conditions are coming along in Marquette County.  Currently, we’re up over 15 inches on the average snowfall for mid November.  With the early snow, and below normal temperatures, mid season conditions are right around the corner and the skis are out. We wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!
