Woke up to about an inch of snow this morning. It’s a brisk, bluebird day today with cold temps and no wind – a great day to ride! John Dee’s forecast is calling for things to be fairly quiet for the next 2-3 days, with a sharp warming of temps into Wednesday. Cooler temperatures with the possibility of some light snows is forecasted to arrive by Thursday, and there’s 8+” in the forecast for Feb 16-21.
Gogebic Area Groomers are out on our trails daily. Our heavy weekend traffic makes continuous grooming somewhat of a challenge but trails are back in shape after the weekend (or they will be after tonight). We’ll see how the predicted mid-week warmup impacts our grooming schedule so check back with us for updated posts this week. Spoke with Casey from the Lake Gogebic Motel, who, in his spare time with his brother Jesse, are out grooming trails. Casey will be out riding and scoping out trail conditions this afternoon and he’ll be grooming 102 tonight, so watch for some posts from him 😊. Chicago Dave is down in Marenisco and reported in that he’s groomed 13S south yesterday and said that right now trails are looking good to excellent. Just know that are groomers are doing everything they can to ensure that they are grooming and maintaining our trails in a careful manner so that we can have good riding for the next several weeks. Please do your part to help out. Our guests had nothing but good comments about our trails this weekend – and even Tommy J. (one of our biggest critics) had commented that are trails were like “table tops”.
