Douglas County and City of Superior Ski Trails Ski trails are open, but grooming of Douglas County and City of Superior Ski Trails has ended for the season. Brule Valley Ski Club and Afterhours Ski Trail Trails remain open, but grooming has been suspended due to warm temperatures. Expect spring conditions. Good skiing exist for skate-skiing. There is still a base for "crust skiing" on the trails. Trails are fully covered with snow, with faded remnants of classic tracks. One skier reported on April 17: "Ungroomed, 10-20 cm of moderately heavy new snow on a solid base. First time around the entry loop was a slow going submarining operation, second time twice as fast. Just need a few more diehards to ski in those tracks! Watch the white pine branch on the right side of the trail at the bottom of the first steep downhill." www.superiorchamber.org

Spring is trying to break through and temperatures are high, so we're losing our snow base. Rockport Park offers Janesville's most extensive cross country skiing with over 6 miles of diverse trails, color coded for your enjoyment. Trails at Riverside Golf Course may be groomed as volunteers are available. Parking is available in the golf course parking lot with access to the trails on the west side of the building. Although these are the only groomed trails, cross-country skiing is allowed in any city park and our 500 acre greenbelt system. Cross country ski (and snowshoe) equipment is available for rent. Deposits are required and held until the equipment is returned on time and in acceptable condition. Reserve early as sizes are limited and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rock County Parks also offer cross country skiing options. Gibbs Lake and Carver-Roehl are suitable for beginner and intermediate skiiers, and Magnolia Bluff is best for experts.
