Last Week of February
After reaching temperatures in the mid to upper 50s earlier this week, cooler weather is expected to move in. High temperatures will reach 40 degrees this weekend and early next week. A couple of storm systems will impact the area in the coming week, with the first moving in on Friday and the second moving in later this weekend. With recent heavy rainfall, the current snowpack is zero. Most trails and slopes have closed due to a lack of snow; however, these closures are just temporary until we get more snow.
With the warmer temperatures, our area ski resorts cannot supplement with snow making. Winter is not over yet in northern Michigan, and we do hope (dare we say expect) to see more winter-like weather yet this season. Check directly with Shanty Creek Resorts, Mt. Holiday, and Hickory Hills for conditions and hours of operation.
Book your mid-winter getaway to Traverse City with a Winter Escape Package and enjoy many of the activities and events happening around Traverse City this season. Check the Events Calendar below for ideas.
