Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  I skated Swedetown Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. Groomer was dragging both days which greatly improved conditions as the deck firmed up nicely. Not much snow in a few spots but lots of trails open to ski on as mentioned in earlier post. I can tell they did a ton of work in the offseason as most of the trails feel wider (see photos) and they also created a huge new translation zone on the hill above the old one so there will be more space for the skiathlon. Thanks for all the hard work! I'm sure the 2020 Bear Chase will be the biggest and best ever.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Conditions are improving as Len's, Valley and Greenstone have been dragged. There are still thin spots, especially where the recent trail work was completed. Reminder: Michigan firearm deer season starts tomorrow (Nov 15) so please dress appropriately and be aware that you may come across hunters in the area.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Grooming for the 2019/2020 ski season started today! Len's Loop, Valley, Greenstone, Ed's, Birch, Cedar and Tamarack were rolled. Expect early season conditions, with leaves, branches, wet or thin spots, etc. Please note: trail improvements were done on sections of Len's Loop, Greenstone, Valley, Powderhouse and a small section on Tamarack. The snow is very thin there, as well as a fair amount of debris, so please exercise special caution in these areas.
