  • Igor’s final tips on skating more effectively
    We offer this last conversation between the late Igor Badamshin and master skier Charlie Dee on skate skiing technique as a remembrance and parting gift to a great coach and skier. 
  • Nordic skiing in an Alpine environment
    Sometimes the best cross-country skiing is right in your own backyard. We found Crystal Mountain Resort to be such a place. 
  • Warming to McMiller again
    The new 30-foot by 40-foot building near the McMiller Sports Center, south of Eagle, Wisconsin, is modeled after a similar shelter opened in 2012 on the Zillmer Trails in the northern unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. It’s scheduled to open in time for the 2014-2015 ski season. 
  • Snowmobilers seek to reopen trail through Blue Mound State Park
    Snowmobile clubs lawyers and lobbyists are pressuring top Wisconsin DNR officials to reopen a snowmobile trail - closed more than 25 years ago - through Blue Mound State Park and across existing silent sports trails. 
  • Volunteers ready Minnesota’s Banadad ski trail for snow
    Volunteers logged more than 252 hours in October preparing the Boundary Water Canoe Area’s longest wilderness tracked ski trail.  
  • The North Lakeland Discovery Center, a nonprofit nature center located in Manitowish Waters in northern Wisconsin’s Vilas County, recently opened a new silent sports trail system: the WinMan Trails. 
  • Quit your grumbling over grooming
    Because I know there are people like Johnsrud and Welsch throughout the state busting their butts on their own time and own dime to groom trails that enhance my life, I’m not particularly tolerant of skiers who whine about the quality of the grooming or about having to pay a trail fee or buy a state sticker. 
  • When snow blankets the Sleeping Bear Dunes
    Lower Michigan's Sleeping Bear Dunes is a favored biking, camping, hiking and paddling destination. Once the snow comes, we return with skis and snowshoes. 
  • Munising, Mich., welcomes ski campers
    The last couple years our ski camp has been in the Munising, Michigan, area where we explore the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the heart of winter. 
  • Sheboygan skiers to get park access during Christmas lights display
    The Rotary Club proposal asked to expand Making Spirits Bright through mid-January, which could have impacted a third of the ski season.
