They are fanatical about Nordic skiing in the Midwest. The folks at Trollhaugen Ski Area in Wisconsin opened for Nordic skiers this past weekend. Despite lack of moisture all of the Midwestern alpine ski areas are usually geared up for snow making and blow snow as soon as the temps get cold enough. Five bucks will get you two hours of skating up and down the alpine runs! Sooner you get on snow the better prepared you’ll be for race season!
