Cross Country Ski Report

Report provided by the Door County Silent Sports Alliance

Door County Cross Country Ski Report for February 20, 2014

Trail conditions are changing rapidly hour by hour right now based on recent weather changes. In the last few days we have had snow, rain, high temperature, low temperatures, wind, and everything in between. Groomers have to wait for the right conditions sometimes to get out and fix trails after a major weather event. This time of year, you may want to call individual park offices for a trail update before heading out to ski. Good luck to all area skiers who are competing at the Birkie this weekend!

Potawatomi State Park  The last snowfall was on February 17th. The perimeter trails on the green blue red loops were rolled and packed for skating and tracked for diagonal stride on February 19th. (Gene Kastenson)

Crossroads at Big Creek  Crossroads received 6” of snow on Monday. Trails were rolled on Tuesday. Due to blowing and drifting no track was set initially. All trails were again rolled and tracked on Wednesday. (Jim Maki)

Whitefish Dunes State Park  Fair to good. 6″ of new snow was rolled, packed and new track set on February 18. Because the snow has such a low moisture content, it results in a very soft trail. The track is full depth and very clean but high winds are causing considerable drifting in open areas. The tracks should set up overnight. Whitefish Dunes State Park trails are classic only. (Rich Dirks)

Peninsula State Park  We received five to six inches of fresh snow and everything is rolled and groomed as of 11:30 am on Tuesday. Conditions should be good to very good. Get out and ski! We will watch and see what happens Thursday in regards to the weather. (Greg Sunstrom)

Newport State Park  Newport received six inches of new snow but they have not yet been groomed since the new snowfall. (Dale Krolich)
