Wow! A perfect conditions day! After two days of skiing on frozen rain influenced trails in the U.P. we went to the Forestville Trails just outside of Marquette and skied on a solid Noque Trail skate deck that had glistening ice fallen from the trees. Fast and easy skiing and enough purchase to snowplow if needed. The brand new Pisten Bully 100 did a fantastic job on the trail.

Skied almost every trail between Forestville trailhead and 510. Good coverage throughout, although 2-3” of new snow from day prior was on top of most recent grooming (there was no grooming done today outside of right by the lodge) - which made for a bit slow going, especially the further out you got.

Best skiing I’ve had this season earlier today. Marquette County had rain and freezing rain on Christmas Eve, so it was tough skiing for a few days. Christmas Day was icy at Noque, but the base held up OK. The first front came through Sunday night and Monday and dropped 4” of wet heavy snow that made conditions way better. Tuesday night around 8 PM the wind shifted and another 3-4” of fluffy lake effect fell before it stopped a bit before dawn on Wednesday. I broke trail for a bit early this morning, and passed the groomer three times in my three hour ski. Tracks are set up to 17 km, everything is rolled up to the 24 km marker at County Road 510. I skied the ‘Wagi’s on the way back — lots of hills and great cover. Nearly mid-season snow conditions and single digit temps tonight should help firm it up.

Skied Forestville. The trailhead building is open but they want you to wear a mask. Tons of snow. On Saturday only the Nokie trail trail to grand junction was rolled. By late afternoon the access road was pretty well plowed. They say everything will be groomed for Sunday.
