Area Report:

Sun is out today, 20 degrees, but feels colder for sure.  Beautiful day for riding.  Forecast is to warm up for the next 3 or so days, then more snow!  Don’t worry, all of our snow will not melt, you will be able to ride every day.  Trails will get soft and groomers won’t go out during the day if its too warm, but they will go out at night when it cools off.  I have had riders calling all day.  First of all, I have no idea how much snow we will loose.  I have been told that I am a witch, but my powers do not include that! lol!  But, I can say with certainty, there is plenty of snow to ride.  Main roads will get bare, as will some parking lots, but not the trails.  I am only saying this about the Keweenaw Peninsula, Houghton/Hancock, Twin Lakes area.  Baraga, Ontonagon and those areas, I have no idea, you have to check with them. 

All trails are now open and being groomed.  Watch for the groomers when out on the trails.  Give them a thumbs up and let them know you appreciate their effort.  They are doing their best.

Remember to stay off all ice, especially when it gets warm these next few days.  The ice is thin and there already is slush under the snow, it will only get worse.  Respect private property and others on the trail.  Slow the f***** down.  Seriously, where are you going in a hurry?  Aren’t you on a vacation?  Slow down and take in the beauty and enjoy it.  Stay on your side of the trail, please! Save the drinking for after the riding!! 

Stay safe out there and see you on the trails!
