Hanson Hills: /8/2016 – Lodge Open from 9am … GREAT SKIING!!
All Trails are Open Firm Skate lanes on all trails. Classic Tracks on Green, Blue, Brown, Easy Return and Wilderness Spur. Due to the warmer temperatures we will keep our grooming equipment off of the trails today.
XC Ski Headquarters: Our trails are still in good shape despite mid 30s temps yesterday. We have 5 to 7 inches of snow in the woods and 3 to 4 inches packed on the the trails. Groomer Henry will start Ginzu snow combing all the skating lanes early this morning. All trails have firm tracks set and have wide, fast, snowcombed skating lanes. Very good conditions prevail on all trails. We may get some light rain this afternoon, but 5-9 inches is forecasted throughout the weekend!
9 & 10 weather:
Today is going to be a day of clouds with some snow, mix and rain showers. The snow will be mainly for the areas to the North while some mix and rain will be confined to the Lower Peninsula. Winds will be out of the Southeast at 5-10mph with highs in the mid 30s to low 40s. Moderate rain will take over for the Lower Peninsula later this evening and into tonight. Expect it to be cloudy with a wintry mix for many areas. It will be mainly rain and mix for the Lower Peninsula while the Tip of the Mitt and U.P. will again see snow. Overnight lows are going to be in the 30s with light winds.
Saturday is looking rainy with highs in the mid 30s to low 40s. Temperatures will stay warm enough to support liquid precip until Sunday morning when colder air will start to filter in and bring in snow showers. Sunday is going to be windy with snow showers and they could be heavy for many areas throughout the day. Gusty winds, falling temperatures and some heavy snow will make for a hectic Sunday. Highs will be in the mid teens to mid 20s. Monday is going to be cold with highs in the teens with lake effect snow showers.
Tuesday is looking snowy and breezy thanks to a small clipper system moving in. Highs will be in the mid teens to low 20s. Wednesday is going to bring in more lake effect and highs are going to range from 9 to 18 degrees. Thursday will be cloudy with a chance for some lake effect snow showers. Highs are going to be in the mid teens to low 20s.
