First time ever skiing here. We skied late in the day and after dark. Didn't find any trails that were lit, but used head lamps. It was a blast - great conditions and I loved the long gradual downhills. On my list of top 5 most fun ski days!

Great snow up here in UP. 10 k on beautiful trail with Eric. Single track. Grooming fantastic. Snow falling tonight. More skiing next two days before returning to twin cities and hamster loops on made snow.

After quite the snow drought, Houghton County in the UP finally got snow--30" of very light, fluffy snow in the Jan 11-14th storm. Groomers are working as hard as possible. I skied the upper trails at Chassell and they were wonderful. In the trees, a few pine needles and grass were visible, but it was snowing hard as I left, and I'm sure they're now covered. The lower trails weren't yet open, but I expect they'll open very soon.
