Western U P Snowmobile Trail Report--- 1/3/2020

Gogebic Range Trail Authority

  • Trail Condition: Good
  • Last Groomed: January 02nd, 2020
  • Base Snowfall: 32"
  • Reported On: January 02nd, 2020 @ 1:01pm

Overall Story:

Thursday 1/2 12:00 pm CST:   We continue to groom a fantastic trail base with a lot of snow.  There are water hazards across the system, we regretfully are back to “early season conditions.”  That means trails will change dramatically & quickly.  And that means riders need to ride easy and defensively!  For the large spots we have made reroutes until the temps drop and trails firm completely back up.  Smaller ones are easily navigated.  All local clubs are working overtime to try and deal with the hazards as fast as possible, but please be patient.  We’ve seen 100″+ of snow, 10 days of 30’s and 40’s with rain.  We had immense snow depth which is why conditions remain so good, but also why the hazards are so tough to seal back up.  Lake Gogebic Area is having more water issues causing them to spend more time fixing holes than grooming trails.  Please be patient with our clubs!    GOOD NEWS:  TRAIL 11S HAS BEEN APPROVED TO REOPEN!  We will send the groomer down it ASAP to get the freezing started!

WARNINGS AND NOTICES:   We are begging riders to ride off trail legally as there are 1-million acres of public land east of Wakefield to off trail ride on – please only ride legal areas!
