Swedetown Trails
Calumet, MI
Trail Length: 30.0k  Maps: | 1 Chalet , 1 M203 
Groomed: Skating/Classical    Lighted: Yes Snowmaking: No
Contact: 906-337-1170    Weather: [ NWS ]  
Notes:   Beginner to expert trails. 4.5k lighted until 10 p.m. Host to the annual Great Bear Chase. Up, down, turns, mixed stands of forest and clearings provide an exciting terrain for the skier. The flow of the trail is Swedetown's specialty. The trail is meticulously groomed and the addition of a warming chalet and lighted trail have made Swedetown hard to beat.

  Still a lot of snow on large sections of trail. Warm overnight, so classic skiing was rather slow this morning. There are some short breaks in the snow, which is why rock skis are preferable, but I used good skis with no problems. Stayed on Valley and the long arm of Greenstone. First day of my seventh month of skiing this season.

  Snow was soft and dirty but very good for May 2. There are some bare spots but maybe 96% coverage. Very skiable for both classic and skate.

[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
  Beautiful grooming of over 13k of trails for great skiing this morning. Thanks, Pat and Tom, for excellent grooming all season and for one more good day this morning. Skate surface was clean and fast, and the track was deep, clean, and fast, too. Many skiers were out to enjoy one of the last good days of skiing in a six-month season.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Grooming plans: we will be tilling and tracking approximately 15-20K of trails Saturday. Pine, Powderhouse, Papa Bear, Flamingo Hill and the Multipurpose Loops are closed. This will be the last weekend for grooming at Swedetown. Thanks for a great season everyone and we'll see you soon!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  All open trails tilled and tracked (Pine, Powderhouse, Flamingo Hill, and the Multipurpose Loops closed). Very good conditions prevail throughout the system. We are loathe to admit it, but it seems like the warming trend will continue. Grooming will consequently be suspended throughout the week, but we will try to get out for one last hurrah next weekend. Grooming completed at 7:30 am.
