Hello Skiers,

Due to the road conditions in Minnesota the bus company has told us that they will not be able to travel across Minnesota this evening. Therefore we will be leaving Duluth Saturday morning. The times to be announced soon. We wanted to get the word out before people started to travel to Duluth. We will be taking the ususal route through Brainerd and Detroit Lakes and can stop and pick-up there too.

Details as to the exact departure times will be out soon. Also in talking to the ski shop in West Yellowstone we will not need roller skis. It was -10 degrees there this morning and is expected to stay cold. They are also expecting more snow on Monday.

Check your email, the Duluth East Website www.dulutheastnordic.org and the facebook page dulutheastnordic for updates.

Pack a lunch for Saturday noon on the bus.

Also in talking to the ski shop in West Yellowstone we will not need roller skis. It was -10 degrees there this morning and is expected to stay cold. They are also expecting more snow on Monday. Make sure you bring running shoes just in case.

West Yellowstone Update

Here is the latest grooming report from West Yellowstone:

11.17.2016 Grooming Report:
Light snow falling, 23F. Almost a foot of new snow in town. Trails groomed: Rendezvous, Dead Dog, Biathlon Range, Penalty loop, short Deja 5 KM, Volunteer, Jerry's, the Doodle, Sheppard's, Drewski, and the long Sprint loop. Skate only and rock skis, though overall except for some soft dirt in a few places, skiing looked pretty good. Everything that is groomed is at least 4.5 M wide.

Although it looks like we will be able to ski let's bring roller skis, helmets and running shoes just in case. Remember to pack light the buses are almost full so the luggage compartments will be full too. Maybe put your helmet and a few other things in a small bag for the overhead bins in the bus. About the for casted weather for Friday. We are leaving the go/go late decision up to the bus drivers and bus company. We will keep you posted through our website - www.dulutheastnordic.org and our facebook page www.facebook.com/dulutheastnordic. As of now we are still planing on leaving at 5:00 p.m. on Friday.

See you tomorrow!
