Snowshoe and ski trail park trivia
Giant slalom race 3:00 PM
Live music 5:00
Pasta dinner 6:00
Lantern-lit ski and snowshoe trail 6:30 - 9:00
Fireworks at dark
Nearly 80 old-fashioned kerosene lanterns illuminate a 1-mile trail for a unique and memorable experience. Ski or snow-shoe around the lighted loop. Stop about halfway around at the warming shelter for a campfire and some refreshments. The ski trail has an "easy" difficulty rating; however, skiing or snowshoeing at night is always a challenge. The trail begins across from the entrance to the ski hill and starts at 6:00 pm eastern time. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #lanternlight
