Very good conditions, almost everything has just been groomed. Getting soft and a little slow but not too bad. Get out as early as you can the next couple days.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We received around 12 inches of fresh snow from this last storm that is now all groomed up nicely. Valley Spur is definitely mid winter conditions now. We have a very good base of about a foot or so which is way less than normal for this time of year but more than sufficient. We have great conditions right now.

Trails were not groomed today but in very nice condition. The skate deck is a little hard in just the few high traffic sections leaving the parking lot. The outer loops still have plenty of corduroy left from the Sunday groom. Classic tracks are still in great, blue wax condition. Downhills are fast but safe with plenty of control. Skied D,G down classic heaven then B in beautiful full sunshine. Great way to spend some of the afternoon!

Dan has trail conditions up where he wants them to be after last week's lake effect snows and colder temperatures. Both skate and classic were very good throughout the weekend.

My friend and I both thought the trails were in very good condition. The grooming was great for classic with the tracks pristine and plenty of snow. After a good ski with the classics, we put on our skate skis and found the skate deck to be soft in some areas and perfect in others. Overall, skate skiing was a delight.

The lake effect snow machine finally fired up over this past week and brought us in the neighborhood of 15 inches of snow to Valley Spur. Cold temperatures have helped firm things up so the skiing is really good right now. The wet and rough areas on the first part of B and in Worels Woods on H are taking shape and with just a few more grooms will be in excellent condition. Get out and enjoy it when you can!

Excellent conditions, track set perfect on fresh snow overnite. Skied A, B, D , H and Y loops. Also skated D and Y loops - slow at times due to fluff and clumps on the skating deck, but saw groomer going over a second time to smooth some trals.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Had a "therapy day" off from work and drove up to Valley Spur after reading Skinnyski reports. Worth the long drive and the great view of wind-driven waves along Green Bay. Conditions were soft due to the fresh snow so I had a long classic ski. Tracks (and skate lane) were great and the wind was howling with gale warnings on Lake Superior. A small number of frozen spots where I assume recent warm weather melted into pools. Stopped to toss off any down tree branches along the way. Whoever finally hit the on switch for lake effect snow in Munising - thank you! By the way, SWIX VR30 kicked like a mule.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We received around 5 inches of lake effect snow last night and today with snow still falling at 1pm. Rolled and set track on all trails this morning starting with C and Y. Another 2 inches or so had fallen on that segment by noon. Skating would be on the soft side but the classic track was real nice. Grooming plan: We will be doing a full groom in the morning.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Hard to believe but today was the first time this year we groomed all trails with our big Ginzu groomer. Wow! We have gotten about 4 to 5 inches of measurable snow in the last 3 days and that has allowed us to get the system in near mid Winter condition. No noticeable thin spots but there are just a few spots on some trails that have some vegetation poking through. The skiing is very nice right now.
