Saturday was the first day of winter and fans of winter sports were taking advantage of the beautiful weather outside.
Many people hit the Noquemanon trail on their skis in Marquette Saturday afternoon. Little children, adults, and even pets were out and about in the winter weather.
"Shoveling and skiing, it's what winter is all about here in the U.P. Get out here and enjoy the great outdoors. Winter is here. Today is the first day of winter so letâ??s enjoy it," said Tommy Ogle.
Trails were in good condition today and groomers were out making sure they stayed that way.
The Noquemanon trail system covers 41 kilometers for the use of many other non-motorized outdoor sports including hiking and mountain biking.
