  We skied the upper and lower trails today. We walked about as much as we skied. There were lots of bare spots and the snow was very dirty. If you're up for an adventure, don't mind hiking, and are able to jump little streams. It's still very worth getting out there.

  No grooming yet as of this morning, but sign said to expect grooming this evening. Makes sense ahead of things freezing up tonight. Tomorrow morning should be hard and fast.

  We arrived at the Nature Center at around 10:30 with temperatures in the teens. The trails were freshly groomed; we were the first ones out. The tracks and skate lane were on the hard side (fast), flurries helped to soften the tracks a little. Another fun outing in the UP. Still plenty of snow up here if the temperatures hold.

  We skied blue and green trails on the west end. Recently groomed, lightly used as of late afternoon, tracks were firm, icy only in a few spots that had seen sun.
