It looks like a good month for cross country skiing is getting better!  With plenty of snow so far this winter and the crisp, colder temperatures that January brings this is a great time to get out and enjoy the municipal ski trails. What's even better is that the City of Superior is offering their use for free the week of January 21 through January 27.

Cross country users will not need the usual passes to ski that week on any of the municipally-maintained trails.  There also won't be an pass checkers - meaning that outdoor enthusiasts can get their fix on a complimentary basis.

Superior has a lot of trails to explore.  All told, they groom and maintain almost 28 miles worth of cross country trails that path their way through the municipal forest.

There are even opportunities for those who don't ski.  The City of Superior has a newly-designated BLUE Trail, that allows skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking. Dog owners will also want to note that this trail allows four-legged animals making it a perfect walk.  Passes aren't needed for this trail, either.  To get there, use the parking lot off of 28th Street at Wyoming Avenue - then follow the Millenium Trail to the "classroom clearing" and you'll see the BLUE Trail to your right.  There is also access to the BLUE Trail off of the parking lot at Billings Drive; the BLUE Trail gives users a choice of a 3.7K outer loop or a 2.9K inner loop.
