Groomer Report

January 31, 2024

Not good news to report as far as snow and trails go here in the Western UP.   Groomers are back in their barns until we get some more snow.   Mother Nature is not being kind to say the least.  We will be the first to let you know when conditions are rideable!    We are hoping for a good late season and have some fun parties planned.    Stay positive – that’s all we can do!

March 16th:      GROOMER BARTENDING BENEFIT at AJ’s where the groomer step behind the bar and all tips go directly to them.

March 16th:      AJ’s Polaris XCR 850 Giveaway at 9:00 p.m.

March 24:        Lake Gogebic Area Poker Run and Vintage Ride

January 19, 2024

Here’s the report from Gogebic Area Grooming.  Important to note the difference between Gogebic Area Grooming – which is Lake Gogebic Area, and Gogebic Range Trail Authority (GRTA) which is west of Lake Gogebic and includes Wakefield, Bessemer and Ironwood.

We’ve had snow this week and there’s snow in the forecast.   We’ll take anything we an get!    Here’s the updated trail report from Gogebic Area Grooming:

  • 1North:   Groomed Thursday night – fair to good condition
  • 1S:   Groomed Thursday night:  fair to good condition
  • 102:  will be groomed on Friday
  • 13N:   Groomed Thursday night:   good to fair condition.
  • 13S:    machine went down on Wednesday.    Still thin and early season.
  • 8w:   had machine head out toward Wakefield to fill in and know down tag alders.
  • 8e:  toward Ewen  – okay but thin.

The North end of the lake has more snow than the south end of the lake.   Lake conditions are reported to be good – an ice heave was reported on the West shore about ½ way down the lake – use caution.

There may still be some thin spots out on the trails– so please use caution!      As always – support a club where you ride, ride right and always respect the land owners!     Have a great weekend!



We are getting snow – so don’t cancel those reservations!   The North Shore of Lake Gogebic has received about 6-8” over the last day, looking to get another 8-12” by Sunday and similar or more amounts next week.  LES would be amazing!

Groomers are currently reporting blizzard conditions and early season riding at best.  Use extreme caution.  Reported ice heave south on the West shore of Lake Gogebic about 1/2 way down..   Yesterday 1 South was signed, brushed and set and on Sunday groomers intend to roll and set 1 North to White Pine and 1 South to Marenisco.  Also plan to pan 13 South and 8 East.

Thank you to all who are rooting for us – we appreciate it very much and look forward to welcoming you back to the Lake Gogebic Area very soon!   Think snow!
