Th Last XC Skiing at Huron Meadows Metropark

This is it. The last XC skiing of this season!!

Huron Meadows is the best XC ski place in SE Michigan. Trails are nicely gloomed. A lot of skate skiers go there. We will do classic style though.
They rent good skies, too. But, they could rent out all in busy days and you cannot reserve. Please come on time or even earlier if you are renting. You may rent from REI or Sun & Snow instead.

If you are new to cross country skiing, I will teach you basics and you may stay on easy golf course trails.

I may split the group for beginners and intermediates & above.

How to find me:
I am wearing a black/yellow dragon tail hat.
See one of my profile pic.

The Skiing:
We may split the group depending on individual skills.
See the map below. The golf courses are easy and the hiking trails are moderate to difficult.

    Sorry I won't be coming - I feared the trails would be icy, and that was a bit scary the last time I tried!

    Not surprisingly, the current condition is icy and wet.
    This is going to be fun.
