Only sign up if you are really interested. Need to have some idea of the count for trying to find accommodations.
Meeting location: Suggested option: Shoreline Inn (you make your own reservations). (231)[masked], 750 Terrace Point Dr, Muskegon, Michigan 49440
This hotel is Muskegon, south of the Sports Complex and in the city right on the bay.
It's $109 for two beds, for two nights
Accommodations: tbd (but I will try to see if people can book for themselves - so far cottages in the area seem booked up)
XC Skiing Costs: $7/person to use the trails, $8/person to rent equipment.
Friday: Meet around 7pm for night skiing on the XC ski trails at the Muskegon Sports complex (Park Lodge on Scenic Drive). Ski until 10pm and go back to where we are staying. Assume you've eaten prior to meeting up for night skiing
Saturday: Meet around 10am for morning XC skiing until about 1pm. Or alternatively people could choose to
SNOWSHOE: snowshoe as there are trails specifically for that. Can go after dark but need your own headlamp.
ICE SKATING: There is also outdoor ice skating available (10am - 9:45pm) for $5 and rentals are available.
LUGE: You can also sign up to go on the Luge at the Winter Sports Complex. Places are limited though so you'd have to book early on your own. Luging is fun if you haven't tried it before and it is a unique experience.
Saturday times from their website:
9 - 11:30am, 11:30am - 2pm, 2pm - 4:30pm (signup for what interests you) similar times on Sunday.
Saturday evening: You can do night XC skiing again if you are staying up longer. Some people will head back on Saturday.
Sunday: go for one last morning XC skiing, ice skating or snowshoeing around 10am and drive back to metro Detroit around 2pm.
** Just a basic idea as people can decide what they want to do.
LONGEST LIGHTED X-C TRAIL SYSTEM IN THE MIDWEST!
Enjoy 15+ kilometers of trails for cross-country skiing. A majority of our terrain is gentle and winds through the woods, along the dunes, Lost Lake bog and nearby Lake Michigan allowing you to explore a variety of Muskegon State Park's natural features. The trails are groomed for both skate and classical skiing when conditions allow, after each snowfall, and on the weekends for some of the best striding and skate skiing in Western Michigan.
