Meeting location: Huron Meadows Metro Park - Ski Touring Center (Golf Starter Building)
Skiing is open for trail near golf course so the plan is to rent or bring your own skis and go skiing. I just called to confirm this today!
Let's hope for some snow!! Huron Meadows Metropark is one of just a few parks in southeast Michigan that offers skate-style and classic groomed cross country ski trails. Choose among 14.8 miles of trails groomed for tracked, classic skiing over easy to moderate terrain, or nine miles of trails groomed for skate-style skiing on moderate terrain with rolling hills. Plus, we have a 1K loop made from snow shot from our snow guns, that is open even if there isn't much snow!
All trails are open, ski and weather conditions permitting.
Separate trails for hikers and snowshoers help keep our ski trails in great shape for skiers only!
This park offers spectacular scenery for your next cross-country ski excursion. Glide past snow-glazed fields, an ice-covered lake, and beautiful deciduous forests.
The Ski Touring Center (Golf Starter Building) is open weekends for ski rentals and features a heated lounge, restrooms and snacks. Groups of 10 or more can make arrangements to rent skis during the week. Dogs are not allowed on ski trails.
