I hadn't heard about cross-country skiing at Alamo Township Park until I happened to pick up a xeroxed flyer at a Kalamazoo sports store. Alamo is a small town on the Kal-Haven trail about 5 miles northwest of Kalamazoo. (Fricano's Pizza is probably the best known landmark in Alamo.)
The township park has three short trails, totaling about 2 miles. Parking is at the baseball diamonds and the trails loop through the woods west of the ball fields. A nice bridge across Sand Creek conects them.
The trails are groomed and fairly level, making for easy skiiing. The West Trail loop (across unplowed 5th St) intersects the Kal-Haven trail, so a longer extension would be possible. (Although the Kal-Haven trail was pretty gritty from snowmobile use when I visited.)

The township plans a Winter festival Saturday Feb 12, 2011 at the park.
I teach economics at Kalamazoo College. My wife is also an economist. We were on sabbatical in Europe for the 2014-15 academic year. (Salamanca, Spain, followed by Oxford, UK.) We were in Uruguay for the 2006-7 academic year.
