January thaw? More like a January heat wave! The Blue Hills Trail in northern Wisconsin withstood the onslaught.

31 Jan

Beginning January 18, when it should have been the coldest week of the winter, the temperatures remained above freezing for one week. During that week, 0.6″ of rain saturated the ski trails on January 20/21. Skiers kindly stayed off the trails when they were soft, and sub-freezing temperatures returned on the 26th. After receiving several inches of new snow at the end of the month, grooming resumed and cross country skiers again enjoyed excellent conditions on the Blue Hills Trail.
