  Conditions on Escanaba ski trail vary today. I was able to cut ice and lay fresh track on the yellow loop or shortest loop of 2.5 miles. Conditions on this loop are fairly good. Most of the track was fully formed but large granule type snow after 50 plus degrees. The other loops are still icy and although not closed may have a few bare spots. The conditions on the loops other than the yellow are fair with an and icy bottom on the tracks. The road in will put a little dirt on your vehicle but if I was looking for a little quiet trail to ski Monday, I would try the yellow loop at Escanaba.

  Erased icy track and a lot of debris, still a lot of leaves but most loops turned out good. Some not fully formed track but most full. Expect fast in the morning and slow in the afternoon due to warm predicted temperatures. Can not run machines if too warm out.

  Excellent conditions with a dusting of fresh snow. Firm base and pole plant area. Some leaf debris but that is normal this time of year. Windy today but cloudy last few days so trails not deteriorating from warm temperatures. Birds are active at the shelter building. If you have not, now is the time to ski Escanaba Trail classic loops, conditions do not get much better than this.

Firsthand 
[ Good skis ]
  The temperature was 15 degrees when I started and still the same several hours later when I finished. I skied the red loop. I always find the grooming here to be meticulous. The downhills, and there are many, are always dragged so one can maintain control. Overall conditions were good to very good and speed in the track was average. Always a fun ski.

  I used a leveler then cut and tracked the entire. Conditions are excellent with 13.5 inches of snow in the woods. There is 5-6 inches of soft snow over some hard snow but finally enough cushion for unplanned landings. With possible warmer air temperatures the condition may go towards very good but should hold up well as tracks set firm today with dropping temperatures.
