Bryan Cook, Gus Kaeding, Caitlin Cassidy, and I drove out to Vally Spur near Munising, MI today to ski. The annual Taste and Glide event was taking place, and the Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee was in town for the festivities. The temperatures got up to almost 40 degrees but there was still tons of snow and perfect grooming. Conditions were slow, but we do not mind trading speed for sun at this time of year. For those of you who have never been there, the Valley Spur trails have something to offer for everyone. There are some difficult trails with long climbs and winding fast downhills. They also have beginner loops and some longer, more scenic, flat trails. They groom nearly every day and they have one of the warmest warming houses I’ve ever been in. It is a very nice day trip from Marquette or weekend get away from anywhere in Wisconsin.
