Escanaba Trail is among my favorite classic tracks. The ups and downs and twists and turns make for an exciting xc ski experience. I only fell twice which isn't bad with this challenging trail. The tracks were firm and track speed was good. The scenery here is spectacular. I would rate overall conditions as good to very good.

A really nice ski today around the Red Loop. Soft snow over well set track made for a special experience. The Northwoods at it's old time best with twist and turns set among lakes, dipsy doodles, swamps, highlands, and some old fashioned narrow gauge rail bed left over from some long ago time with single track narrowness. If you can make it, do.

Unbelievably gorgeous! I think I was the second skier on the meticulously groomed trails. If you are a classic skier who likes to stay in the tracks for descents, this is your place. Narrow, winding, and through snow-covered pines! I skied red to the bypass blue, followed by yellow for about 9 miles and was met with great conditions the whole way.

I skied the blue trail this afternoon and conditions were okay. Downhill was tough in sections with no tracks due to ice under the powder. My kick wax would also stick on the downhills so I would go light on the kick or play with waxes to avoid this. Uphills and flats were a breeze and tracks were fast. Overall, the tracks held up really well with the weather and I still had a good time! The back portion of the trail that is flatter was especially fun. Thanks again to DNR staff for maintaining such a great trail!

I skied the green loop and snow conditions are very fast today. The tracks are perfectly set and after every downhill I glided into the tracks again and often for a good distance. The snow is mixed with ice crystals but most uphills can be skied up. I used Toko red grip wax and plain paraffin glide wax. An excellent combination for me today at 20+ degrees F.
