I'm here for a few days on a business trip from Europe and would love the possibliity to xc-ski at the weekend. Do you know where is it possible near to Plymouth/Wixom to ski? Or how far it's needed to drvie to north to get good tracks? And to rent (some good) XC-Ski? would be aweseome if you could answer me :)
Thanks in Advance! pepa
You could check Huron Meadows Metropark, that's the only place I know around here, they rent skis and have a small loop for skating, maybe call them?
I asked around and Alan (who skis a lot) says:
... check out the ski conditions on this website:
The best places to drive to from Plymouth would be XC Headquarters, Hanson Hills, and Forbush Corners. Hanson Hills being the best one for challenging trails and XC Headquarters the closest.
Or if you want to check out a map or two that could also be arranged :)
I decided to go to Traverse City. Beautiful tracks there!
In the area of detroit was not enough snow anymore. Here it‘s perfect :)
But, yeah, if you would have some maps in the Detroit area, and some time, I would like to run on a map. I have just standard shoes with me, but that’s no reason to say no :)
I will be back sunday night and have to work mostly up to 3or 4 pm. Do you have Facebook for further communication?
I'm totally sorry for no reaction on your nice offer!
But the workweek was much more intensive as thaught, so had less time as planned.
I will come back to Motown one day, and eventually the next time is not such a cold :)
sure, there's also http://smoc-runs.com
, and AP group
in case you need to plan.
