Trail Reports


Randy attempted to groom Chippewa Hills this morning and there was just not enough snow. Sorry looks like all the good skiing is going to be north at Norway and the City Golf Course.

March is in like a lion and we have snow again!  Alpena Golf Course is now groomed with a classic lane.
Norway Ridge Pathway has been groomed as well. Norway Ridge Pathway does have some water holes after trail marker 11. It is recommended to turn left at trail marker 10 to avoid the water holes. Enjoy the snow while it lasts. Who knows if we will get another chance to ski this winter.

Sorry to report the snow is gone. No further grooming is planned unless we get additional snow fall. Please continue to check this page if the snow comes back this winter.
