Posted on

The 9th annual Glide N Gorge will take place Saturday, March 4, from noon until 3 pm at the Maasto Hiihto ski trails in Hancock. The event starts at the Four Seasons Chalet (Hancock Driving Park) and includes a combination of skiing and deliciousness! You’ll ski a 5km course, including the beautiful Swedetown Creek, and have two food stops along the way, then a dessert table and live music back at the Chalet. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the event. You can purchase tickets at Downwind Sports in Houghton, Cross Country Sport in Calumet, or at the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club website (where you can also find more details).

    Swedetown -The Husky is off the leash and running free. All trails tilled and tracked, beautiful conditions. Multi loops rolled.

    Churning Rapids Snow Bike Trail – All trails groomed Friday night. Basswood loops were groomed for the first time this season and are soft. A few inches of fluffy snow fell after grooming, but trails should be rideable with low tire pressure.

    Maasto Hiihto/Churning Rapids -This morning we rolled the snow that fell overnight and decided some trails were now deep enough to make tracks. Granted, things are quite rough and wet spots remain, nonetheless, tracks were made on all city side trails and the gorge until Tomasi pit road. From there the old trail or trail 8 to Churning Rapids has tracks; trail 4 towards Mud Lake, and the trail on the east side of the lake (trail 9). Trails aren’t perfect yet but skiing isn’t bad.
