Just back from a weekend of skiing, and snowshoeing. The UP of Michigan along the south shore of Lake Superior picks up moisture from the lake, and dumps huge amounts of snow inland. Just about the perfect place to plan a weekend of Winter activities. We did manage to pick a cold weekend, temps dipped to around -17F overnights and stayed around -4F for the daytime. The "Ski Team" did two days skiing at ABR, and an afternoon snowshoeing along the Black River.
I'm fairly new at the skate skiing game, and trying to skate at these temps was tough. Maybe even tougher on ski's as I managed to break a ski on Saturday. It was a great trip, a full weekend of skiing, snowshoeing, saunas, hot tubs, and good friends.
