Area Wide Snow Report
TRAIL CONDITION REPORT 2/27/2015
We have bright sunshine and blue skies. Our temps will get up into the teens today and the weekend temps will be in the 20′s. Looks like a nice week ahead of us for riding.

The Gogebic Range Trail Authority:
Here is the report from the club president this morning. Trail 2 to Ironwood is groomed and is in good to very good condition, trail 2 to Marenisco is groomed and is in good to very good condition. Trail 8 will be groomed this afternoon, watch for a truck crossing going across the trail just after Tula Tracks…11N will be groomed this weekend and trial 160 is in good to very good condition.
Watch for the detour around a large water hole on trail 11N signs are posted. There is still logging on 160 so watch for logging trucks. Logging trucks do have the right of way. Trail 11S is closed due to logging this winter.

The Lake Gogebic groomer’s report:
Trails are in very good condition. Temps are expected to warm up to the 20’s for this weekend which should make for some very comfortable riding.
Just a quick word of warning; DNR and police are ticketing anyone riding the highway, all highways, in our area along with riding on the railroad tracks or anywhere you know you’re not supposed to be. This includes riding through Bergland on the highway between JW’s and the gas station or riding from the gas station north along the highway to get to the trail connect.
VERY IMPORTANT: Watch for the reroute where trails 1, 102 and 8 West meet, north of Merriweather going west for about 5 miles. Watch for changes and signs. YOU CANNOT USE THIS AREA FOR ANY RIDING. This reroute will continue to the end of the season. You may also want to top off your gas if headed north through this area as the reroute will add an extra ten miles (there and back) to your trip with no gas stops between Lake Gogebic and Konteka.

 

The Watersmeet groomer’s report: 
Our groomers are running daily and trails are all groomed. All trails are in good condition.
Please follow the orange barrels and stay on trail going across Cisco Chain.

Please remember groomers are out both day and night, so watch for them, please pull over or at least slow down and wait for the operator to signal you by whenever you see them. Groomers have the right of way.

If anyone has any complaints or concerns about the trails please call the Michigan Snowmobile Association. 616-361-2285

JUST ONE MORE REMINDER: PLEASE STAY ON MARKED TRAILS. RIDING ON UNMARKED TRAILS CAN RESULT IN THE CLUBS LOSING EASEMENT FOR THAT TRAIL AND IT CAN ALSO RESULT IN A POSSIBLE TICKET FOR YOU.
