Received over a foot of snow in the Lake Gogebic Area yesterday which would have been much more welcomed had it not been for the warmer temps that created open water areas. It’s still snowing with temps in the high teens which could drop to single digits later today. Let’s hope. Snow is in the forecast daily with a significant (12-24”) forecasted for Jan 4-9.
- Trail 1 N has some wet spots.
- Trail 8 between Bergland and Wakefield is CLOSED due to water on the trail. Advised not to ride this trail at all until it freezes. If heading west, take the West shore to Marenisco.
- Trail 13 North: groomed last night.
- Trail 8W groomed last night.
Most of all the trails have some type of water issues. Groomers are out now in Marenisco seeing what needs to be fixed. Use extreme caution while our guys assess and fix. Snow cover is making is more difficult to see water areas. Everyone is doing all they can – please do your part and be smart when out riding.
There’s a bunch of parties here on Lake Gogebic where you can spend New Years twice in two different time zones! Kick of the night on the North Shore and then head it down the lake for some live entertainment at the Gogebic Lodge! Wherever you go, however you get there – please be safe. The New Year is here and we don’t want anything happening to anyone! Look after each other and keep an eye out for anyone who may need assistance.
Also, please consider supporting the clubs where you ride – all these clubs with their groomers and volunteers are turning this white stuff into an amazing playground and it’s a huge effort!
From everyone here in the Lake Gogebic area – we wish you and yours a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
