Fantastic!

Couldn’t make it today (but your deck and food is always the bomb on sunny days!). Crust skiing was fabulous here in Traverse City, this morning. Get out and ski nordic fans, it’s incredible.

What a great bunch of people! You all do such a wonderful job of making our area a premier X-Country Ski destination.

You don't look so "bottomless" in this photo Lj Kanaby! Looks to be a fabulous spring day of skiing! Who doesn't love some corn kernel snow to ski In! Be careful in that thick stuff...tore my ACL in that kind of snow!

NICE!!!

Congrats!
