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 member already? Bring along a friend to try skiing or snowshoeing. From noon to 4 p.m. there will be free snowshoe and ski rentals provided by Cross Country Sports of Calumet. Maybe you want to try some different equipment yourself. First come, first served for rental equipment, as available. Come to the Swedetown Chalet to check out equipment. 
Free coffee, hot chocolate and snacks from noon to 5 p.m. Stop in and say hi! Chalet is open until 5 p.m.and trail lights are on until 9 p.m.
We will hold Trails Day on January 15 even if it snows a little (or a lot). Dress appropriately for the conditions. Swedetown Winter Trails Day  is co-sponsored by Cross Country Sports of Calumet and the Swedetown Trails Club.

    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.
