Groomer Report

Wednesday 12/11 9:00 am CST:   We saw over a foot of snow Monday – Tuesday, we’ve been trying to pack trails for two weeks and the snow hasn’t quit!  It is currently zero to sub zero temps.  Temps warm Friday but the ice berg trail base currently forming won’t be bothered much, should only push a half foot or so down.  These are the best early season conditions since 2014, we are SHOCKED at how nice the trails are!  We need more groomer volunteers, please contact us today.  160 is closed until next week and 11S remains closed for the season, but we remain actively looking for a reroute.

WARNINGS AND NOTICES:  WATER HAZARDS REMAIN, FREQUENCY DRASTICALLY REDUCED. TRAIL 11S IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON.  160 IS CLOSED

 

Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay US-2 Crossing:

Overall rating:  EXCELLENT

Last groomed 12/10/19.    Please do not ride on side walks near Holiday and try to keep noise down in town.

 

Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield:

Overall rating:  EXCELLENT

Last groomed 12/10/19.  Wet spots near the Highway 2 crossing remain, please ride cautiously!  This trail has a brand new section to enjoy this season that eliminated the Prospect road route and moved the trail completely into the woods eliminating 1.5 miles of road route.  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL AND RESPECT THESE LANDOWNERS!  The new reroute has an icy section from a snow bridging operation over a wet spot.  The ski hills were in good shape but need continued grooming but are entirely ride able.

Trail 2 from Wakefield to Marenisco:

Overall Rating:GOOD TO EXCELLENT

Last groomed 12/9/19.  There are water holes around the Wakefield area & Great Lakes Road pipeline, please be careful.

 

Trail 8 from Wakefield to Tula Crossing:

Overall Rating:  EXCELLENT

Last groomed 12/10/19.  Tremendous snow depth on this trail.  It is an unplowed county road and is a treat to ride!  WATER HOLES JUST WEST OF 2/8 INTERSECTION

Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River (WI):

Overall Rating:  CLOSED UNTIL IT IS FINISHED BROKE OPEN.

PLEASE stay on the trail through the farm fields.   This is our most scenic trail and is a treat to ride!  There are several scenic vistas on the trail such as Bald Mountain “NORTH” lookout viewing Madeline Island/ mouth of the Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior,  the Bald Mountain “SOUTH” lookoutviewing Gogebic Range (Powderhorn, Copper Peak), the Montreal River Gorge look outand finally the amazing Superior Falls Waterfall Complex.  Stay on the trail in the farm fields.  Over 25 landowners are involved to make this trail a reality, please respect them and ride responsibly.

11S (Wakefield, MI to Winchester, WI):

Overall Rating:  CLOSED

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON DUE TO LOGGING OPERATIONS THAT THE CLUB WAS UNABLE TO FIND A REROUTE AROUND.

11N (Wakefield, MI to South boundary Rd/White Pine):  Closed indefinitely.  Seeking local community support with ideas on how to reopen it.  200 yards of private property closed this 25 mile trail.
