Trails are groomed for classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 3:00 PM Comments: Tracked the green loop around Pallette Lake only. Laid nice track but snow is blocky crystal typical late winter snow. Conditions are fair as tracks will be fast in the Am and slow in the PM. Nebish Road is starting to thaw and is a bit muddy in a few spots. Nebish Road should is firm after cold nights but by late afternoon could get soft similar to the classic tracks. There is some debris in the track but not unusual for this time of year. LUMBERJACK TRAILS: Trails are not packed or groomed for skiing. RAVEN TRAILS: Trails are not packed or groomed for skiing.

With full sun and the fresh snow, conditions are currently pretty soft. With above freezing days and nights and rain in the 10-day forecast, keeping the trails in shape for skiing much longer may become a challenge.

Come on down and enjoy the trails! WINMAN SKI TRAILS: Trail update March 6: With a light dusting of snow and a windy day yesterday it was time to clean up the ski trails – so we did. Fatbike trail update: I finally got a chance to check out the fatbike trails today and they are beautiful…for snowshoeing…but are totally unrideable for fatbiking. With the amount of snow, drifting and crustiness it would be pointless to try to run the Snowdogs until we can get the trails packed down. The best way to do this is to snowshoe them in and then once there’s a relatively firm, flat base I can start running the dogs with the groomer. Want to help? Grab your snowshoes and come on out. I’ll have a trail list on the counter with tick marks on how many times the trail has been stomped. Pick a trail with the least amount of tick marks, stomp it and tick it off when you get back. I figure each trail will need to be stomped 8-12 times before I can attempt to groom it. CAMP MANITO-WISH YMCA TRAILS: Trails will be tracked for Classic skiers every Thursday.

As it stands, the loop around the lake will remain closed unless conditions improve where the drifts settle down. Very little debris. Overall the trails are in great condition. MADELINE TRAILS: DNR rating: Good. Trails are groomed for classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Wednesday, March 06, 2019 at 3:00 PM Comments: All loops were leveled and tracked. Except for the Red segment that has the 1st steep hill to the shelter- this was only leveled. Good conditions, a few leaves scattered on the trail. I am having equipment issues still and will be sharing a gator from the McNaughton trail. This will delay grooming operations for Madeline Trail after a fresh snow. Thanks for your understanding. Have a great time!

WINMAN SKI TRAILS: Trail update February 14th: Had both Snowdogs out this morning and it took hours to slog through just the Demo, Bridge, Twins, part of Hub and Trial & Air bike trails. To call them groomed and rideable would be a total lie. We are exhausted and giving up for the day. I’m going to pick up a second sled for the new Snowdog today, ditch the groomer for the time being, focus on packing the remaining trails on Friday and maybe try grooming at the end of the day. The ski trail actually setup pretty nicely – tracks and skate lane – last night for our WinMan Wednesday ski. Originally I was going to groom again today but with a couple inches of snow forecast for tonight, I’m going to hold off until tomorrow (Friday).

All other loops have been cut and tracked. There is a lot of tree debris on all loops. Fair conditions MADELINE TRAILS: Trails are groomed for classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 12:00 PM Comments: Trails were groomed by Noon today. Trails were cut twice then tracked. Loops have a lot of debris, especially the outer loops. Tracks are not perfect with no new snow, they are a bit powdery but if the temp drops they should set nicely. Surprisingly the Red Loop, is the best loop right now, with the back of the Red being nicely tracked. Be careful because the hills are slick! Don’t bring your best skiis. Good luck and hope for snow!

There was a lot of damp spots that soaked into the base but the base stayed firm and was not slushy or icy. Since the trail was groomed there have been a lot of bikers out riding and all report that they are in excellent shape. The skate lane of the ski trail has really good coverage and has smoothed out but is a little soft right now - colder temperatures tonight should set it up nicely. We were finally able to set track around the entire system but watch out for a few dirty spots.

Escanaba Trails-Trails are groomed for classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, March 06, 2018 at 1:00 PM Comments: Cut and tracked all loops. Escanaba Trail is in good condition. Cold weather and low use will keep tracks in good shape. There was a measured 22 inches of snow on an undisturbed picnic table near the Research Station. Unless we have a shift in task priority, or the tracks are still in good shape, we expect to touch up again on Friday. This time of year we may have to recondition and mix the snow before tracking which takes additional time. If reconditioning our goal would be to have the yellow and green loop tracked by 11:00 Am Friday and the entire trail by 1:00PM. McNaughton Trails- Trails are groomed for skate and classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 8:00 AM Comments: All trails tracked/groomed this morning. The trails have a decent base yet but some areas feel like solid ice. There are some spots on the classic loops that have shallow tracks but for the most part the tracks turned out fairly well. The skaters loop is in real good condition minus the one area near the lake where large drifts accumulated in previous weeks. Considering the time of the year, the trails are in good condition. Madeline Trails- Trails are groomed for classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 11:00 AM Comments: All loops cut twice and tracked. Raven Trails- Trails are groomed for classic cross-country skiing and were tracked on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 1:30 PM Comments: All loops have been cut twice, leveled and tracked.

A little bit of fresh snow helped smooth out the trail. Classic loops were still very hard (iced up) from the warm temps. Some areas of tracks are a little shallow but overall they are in good condition. LOTS of debris was on the trail from the recent high winds. The skater’s loop, overall, is in good condition. It just a little soft but smoothed out nicely after this snow. The only spot that has some humps is near the lake where the drifts always pile up. There is considerably less debris on the skaters loop vs the classic.

The 2017-18 ski season has started. We had been out earlier this week after the first light snow doing some packing and clearing of trees after the strong winds. We will be out packing the snow we are receiving today over the next couple of days. I will send out new reports on ski trail grooming as it is reported to me. You may also check on skinnyski.com as our groomers will be making firsthand reports to the site. We also have a phone line, 715-385-3355 Ext.121, which will have a recorded ski report. McNaughton Trail – 12/13 – All loops have been packed with the roller. There are two small wet spots on the trail which I hope will freeze up soon. One spot is a little way after you pass Helen Lake, the other is on the Red/skaters loop shortly after you leave the trailhead parking lot.

Trail Report March 7, 2017: The recent weather has taken its toll on snow conditions in the north woods. We are suspending grooming of the trails, most likely for the rest of the season.

We received a couple inches of snow since the last grooming. All trails have areas of thin snow. The forecast is for another batch of warm days on Saturday and Sunday with rain coming on Monday. Conditions vary from poor to good on all trails. Madeline Trail – 3/1/17 – All loops tracked. McNaughton Trail – 3/1/17 – Skaters loop groomed. All other loops tracked.

Escanaba Trail - About 6-7” fluffy new snow in last day or so. Tracked green loop only today. Rest of trail was groomed about mid snowfall yesterday and was left to “ski in” as today’s grooming didn’t seem to improve conditions. Conditions vary greatly from poor (very thin – not enough snow to set track) to very good. The tracks in hardwoods sections are mostly good or better. The conifer sections are very thin. Do not take good skis on this trail at this time. There are many short sections of trail with no track due to thin snow cover. Raven Trail – All loops tracked. Thin spots under the conifers on the Red and Yellow loops with conditions on these loops being poor to fair. The Green and Blue loops have fair to good conditions. McNaughton Trail – Skaters loop groomed with one spot of slush noticed about 100 yards from the trailhead. Good conditions. All other loops tracked. Thin spots under the pines along Helen lake. Fair to good conditions. Madeline Trail – All loops tracked. Had an issue with one of the trackers so some parts of the trail have a single track. Thin in spots. Fair to good conditions.

The recent warm spell has taken its toll on the trail base. The forecast calls for a good amount of snow on Friday – Saturday. We will try to get the trails groomed on Saturday if conditions permit. Standing water on the trail or excess moisture in the snow may delay grooming until conditions improve. Tony Martinez Trails Coordinator Northern Highland American Legion State Forest

The recent winds have left much leafy debris on the trails with reports of the tracks being icy and fast. We have tried to cut up the tracks and turn most of the leaves into the base. The forecast calls for another stretch of warm weather over the next couple of days. Conditions will change rapidly with the warm sunny days.

The warmer weather has left the trails with a very moist base of snow. The cooler temps that are here now may improve the conditions. I attempted to groom Raven trail yesterday and ended up getting stuck on the first hill on the Red loop with snow packing up in the groomer. I then made an attempt to just track the inner loops without cutting up the old track and the results were not very good. The groomer for the Escanaba trail is out right now to see what he can do with the snow conditions out there. We will make efforts to get the trails groomed for the weekend. Please have patience.

The rain and high winds had left the trails with many trees down, debris on the trail and a thick ice crust. Need more snow to get them back in good shape. Escanaba Trail– 12/27/16 - Escanaba trail is in fair shape. The recent wind and ice crust that formed made for very challenging grooming. All loops were cut three times and decent track was the result. Expect a fast track and not a lot of cushion in your fall. A dusting or two of lake snow should cover the debris and make for a nice ski. Conditions are fair but would move to fair to good with a covering of new snow. Still some thin spots so, if available, take the rugged, less expensive set of skis. Raven Trail – 12/27/16 – Trail cleared of down trees and most branches. Fair conditions. All loops were cut twice and tracked. Still very thin and shallow tracks set under the heavy conifers on the Red and Yellow loops. Madeline Trail – 12/29/16 – All loops cut twice and double tracked. A lot of leafy debris. Fair conditions. McNaughton Trail – 12/29/16 – All loops cut twice. A lot of debris under the pines. Skaters loop groomed. All other loops double tracked. Fair conditions.

The cross country ski trails in the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest are still open but deteriorating fast due to high daytime temperatures. Escanaba was last groomed on Sunday, March 8th and McNaughton on Monday March 9th. Both had enough snow to groom but that was two, near 50 degree days before this report.I believe we are in a holding pattern and may not groom again unless we receive cold and snow again which is not predicted. We are still open and there may be some opportunities but it would be on conditions that would be fair at best. I will send a notice if we officially close. We thank you for your patronage this year.I look forward to hearing from the “ski until the snow is gone” crowd.

All Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest Cross Country Ski Trails are in very good to excellent condition. Escanaba was last groomed on March 3rd. Raven, McNaughton and Madeline were groomed on March 4th. The only reason they are not rated excellent condition is a small amount of leaves in the track, which naturally occurs this time of year. This weekend should be some of the best conditions of the year for consistent conditions. On average we groom until mid-March.For great track I would say skiing today, March 5th through Monday March 9th would be best. We will be grooming a limited amount after that and conditions will become variable once the 40 degree temperatures arrive. By variable conditions I mean fast frozen tracks in the morning and slower softer tracks in the afternoon, with klister wax and proper waxing becoming critical for traction and glide. Boulder Junction Winter Park: Open for ice skating, sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. North Lakeland Discovery Center: Tuesday, March 3 - We received around 4-5" of fresh snow yesterday and tracks are set. Trails at the Discovery Center were groomed yesterday, and are in good shape.
