Snow Cover: 7-8″
Area Report: I am so sorry that it took so long to get up and running here. There was a glitch that was just fixed here for us finally, so I can now start doing our reports. And it came on the wake of some good news finally. As everyone knows this has been quite a winter with El Nino intervening and setting records that have held for over 130 years for warm temperatures and lack of snow. But things are getting back to normal little by little. Really cold temps have thickened the ice on the lakes in the past couple of days, and we have been getting snow more days than not it seems. We just haven’t gotten that one big snowfall that fixes the problem. The trail boss’ wife just told us that they panned last night and will pan again tonight. They are rating the trails as being in “fair condition” at this point with some bumpy areas. Lake effect snows are continuing here and hopefully we’ll soon have the go ahead from the DNR to actually start grooming. The U. P. Thunder Riders and all of us and probably all of you can’t wait!!! We know it’s just around the corner that our trails will be in the great shape that our super groomers keep them in.
Thanks for visiting our report. I’ll keep you posted on any changes here.
