  Great conditions! Skiing this beautiful classic tracked trail is a fabulous way to experience some of the best of northern Wisconsin's rolling terrain. With its quick climbs and long, easy-cruising descents it is a very well laid out system. Just enough tricky twists and turns to add a bit of excitement along the way. Many thanks to Dan Jacoby for his excellent work of grooming.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I groomed the yellow and green loops which are the two shorter loops at Escanaba. The outer loop around Escanaba lake was still in very good shape due to less use. Still plenty of snow to reset track with success. Parking lot was full Saturday so many sit spots to smooth. Very little debris, nice weather and 15 inches of snow in the woods. Conditions are very good to excellent. Next grooming should be Tuesday or Wednesday after the MLK Holiday.

  Escanaba is one of my all time favorite trails. It can be intimidating because of all the hills and I keep wondering how much longer I am going to be able to ski it because of my age. It was 5F degrees when I arrived at 8:00 am and it was still 5F degrees when I finished two hours later. The cold temperature made the track slower than usual but I consider that a good thing on this trail. The grooming was good and the track was fun.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed this morning with great results. Fully formed track with very little debris after about 10-12 inches of mid week snow. Very scenic and a good time to see animal tracks. Very good to excellent conditions.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Three days straight of snow has added 8-11 inches locally. I measured 16.5 inches of snow on picnic table near Escanaba Research Station. All loops are tracked and in very good to excellent shape. There are some small sections of drifting from very high winds last night after about 8 inches of snow yesterday but was able to smooth into just rollers. Snowing heavy at times today so tracks may be covered again. We will groom again Thursday or Friday after snow lets up. Stay tuned.
