All the trails were in great condition with nice deep tracks. Today was the fourth time I've skied Afterglow this year and it is amazing how Pete keeps the trails in such great shape all the time. Thanks Pete and your family for such a great place to ski.

Pete has knocked himself out keeping up with the grooming with the 12 inches of snow the last couple of days. Today was a beautiful day for classic skiing with nicely set tracks. Skating was very good considering all the new snow. Thanks Pete for all your efforts and commitment in keeping your skiers happy!

Six inches of new snow were groomed before the trails opened. New snowfall after trails opened was also nicely groomed. This diligence made for excellent classic and very good skate skiing. Lots of smiles on skiers at Afterglow today!

The trail was groomed perfectly. I skated but used the tracks on downhills too. Perfect corduroy (no left over snow or ledges of snow)... with a light dusting on a firm deck. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

New snow was groomed and track set in top notch (typical Pete M meticulous grooming) condition, when we skied in the morning. The base is excellent. A wolf had visited one outlying trail after Pete groomed before daylight and left a series of tracks in the skate lane. That completed our great experience.

It was a great ski day at Afterglow. The trails were immaculately groomed for both skate and diagonal. There is plenty of snow and the scenery was beautiful. The trails, as usual, were a perfect 10+.

The conditions were superb today. Skate deck was solid and tracks were set. Perfect temps and conditions for a fast skate in the woods. Could not ask for more. A always a great place to ski.

After being gone from the Northwoods for 5 years, it was refreshing to go skiing at Afterglow again and find the high standard of grooming has not changed. I skated nearly all the trails and found a solid base with light dusting of snow on top (although that changed overnight). Conditions were great and I anticipate them remaining so. Trails are leveled nicely, so should ski well going forward. Thanks for all the work Pete!
