Michigan Upper Peninsula


      Houghton area [ forecast/conditions ]
    • Apr 29 - Keweenaw County backcountry (Lac La Belle): 
      Firsthand 
      [ Rock skis ]

      2-4" of fresh snow and sleet over ice from freezing rain, over a 0-10" base of old snow. Good skiing this morning from Delaware up Gratiot Mtn. and down to Eagle Harbor and back. My only regrets today were not wearing a helmet (due to falling ice from trees) and not using faster skis (better rock skis could have been used). This year's ski season is ending up above average with up to 275" of total snowfall and skiing from November 19 through April 29 for me.

      Thunder Bay area [ forecast/conditions ]
    • May 2 - Lappe Nordic Ski Centre (Thunder Bay): 
      Firsthand 
      [ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]

      Still going. The mix of rain and snow in the city yesterday was all snow out at Lappe, and the ski conditions are quite good. There's probably about 10-12cm of fresh snow over the groomed surface from the weekend, with a nice skied in classic track and a soft but still very skiable skate deck. It was right around the freezing mark this morning and it's a little bumpy as expected, with a few tree branches down here and there. Skating is a bit of a workout; however, my old pair of Fischer Crowns were perfect in the tracks. Spring skiing may last for a little while here yet, but today was a nice way to wrap up the season.

    • Apr 29 - Lappe Nordic Ski Centre (Thunder Bay): 
      Firsthand 
      [ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]

      Beautiful day for a ski. Trails were PistenBully groomed yesterday for skate and classic, and conditions were still near perfect this morning. Skating surface was level and solid and classic tracks were full depth. The temperature at 8am was -6c, warming up to near zero by 10am under bright sunshine. Warmer temps and lots of sun in the forecast for the rest of the weekend with a return to snow on Monday.

United States


  • May 23 - Rabbit Ears Pass (Steamboat Springs, CO): 
    Firsthand 
    [ Good skis ]

    32 degrees at 10 am near Walton Peak Trailhead. Snow was starting to soften up and provided decent glide on waxless skis. 1" on new snow of about 24-30" of snow on ground at 9800 ft. Could be good for a couple of weeks. Creeks are all open to make it a challenge to go everywhere.
