    Michigan Tech – Trails dragged. No tracks set. The base is mostly holding but there are thin spots and icy spots. There are several spots on Portage that are very thin.

    Swedetown – All trails dragged except the upper Powderhouse field and the Bear loops. Tracks are holding and the base is 6-10″ in most places. Very good early season conditions.
