All cross country ski trails are open in all areas of Door County and the weather forecast predicts more great skiing opportunities!
Wax up those skis and get out there. If you have never skied before, this is the year to give it a try!
Potawatomi State Park
The last snowfall was 3 inches on January 30. All trails were groomed for skating and tracked for diagonal stride on February 4. The skate lane is firm and fast with some bumpy stretches. The diagonal stride track is deep, firm and fast. The trails have gathered some leaves and debris since the last grooming. Skating and diagonal stride both rated good to very good. (Gene Kastenson)
Crossroads at Big Creek
Excellent. Trails were groomed and tracked on Thursday, February 6. Skate lane is firm and fast. Track is in great shape as well. No new snow to report, so conditions should remain excellent through the weekend. Friends of Crossroads will loan ski equipment and snowshoes for free on Sunday afternoons from 1 to 3 pm. (Jim Maki)
Whitefish Dunes State Park
Almost Excellent – All trails were re-groomed on February 5 and a new track was set. Base is firm, tracks are full depth and will setup overnight, pole plant areas are firm, but portions of the trails are peppered with ground up woods debris in areas near Beech, Cedar, Hemlock and, to some extent, White Pine trails. Overall, the trail conditions present some of the best skiing in years with no freeze/thaw cycles to deal with, so now is the time to get out and enjoy it. On February 15, the rescheduled Candlelight Ski event will be held under an almost full moon. (Rich Dirks)
Peninsula State Park
Very good condition overall. Everything was groomed on Friday January 31, and the yellow trail was groomed again Saturday evening February 1 after our candle light ski. Everything is in good to very good condition. Let’s get skiing! (Greg Sunstrom)
Newport State Park
Excellent overall. Newport and Europe Bay loops’ single track trails are in excellent shape. (Dale Krolich)
