Swedetown Winter Trails Day is Sunday, January 15

Posted on

Winter Trails Day is a national celebration with over 100 events throughout country. As part of our 2017 event, Swedetown is celebrating (and showing off!) the new Prinoth Husky trail groomer. It’s nine feet tall with a 228 horsepower Mercedes Benz engine and a big wide high speed tiller with dumbo ears. Who doesn’t love big machines?
 
Free skiing and snowshoeing offered all day, normal day pass rate of $10 is not charged on Winter Trails Day. If you have a membership at other local trails, this will be a great time to visit Swedetown and try all the great trails. Swedetown Trails Club members will be on hand to suggest trails to explore.

Swedetown Adds Trail Cam

Posted on

Swedetown Trails has added a web camera with a trail view of Valley Trail. Of course we just had to add a snow yardstick to show the snow depth off the side of the groomed trail. Our “yardstick” is actually a little taller than a yard, just in case.

Since Valley Trail is a lighted trail, the evening view will show up as softly lit until 9 p.m. There is a second web camera with a view from inside the chalet looking out across the deck in case you are wondering how many skiers are out having fun at the moment (best in daytime).

There are also trail cameras on the Michigan Tech Trails.
