Groomer Report

The ice storm over the weekend has taken a toll on trails in the Lake Gogebic Area.    After the ice storm on Saturday, 6+” of wet heavy snow on Sunday brought down a lot of branches and debris on the trails.   Groomers are out – and trails are in nice shape but some trails are not even currently groomable due to brush.   The South end of Lake Gogebic area is being groomed right now and reported to be in good condition with the exception of a few wet spots – just have to watch for overhanging brush.

There will be a BRUSHING PARTY on Tuesday (3/8/22) at 10 a.m.  Eastern.   Meet at Tuski Rd. in Bergland (3rd drive on the left).   Bring a snowmobile and a chainsaw.   Pizza and beverages afterword.   Aj’s Walleye Lodge is providing complimentary lodging for anyone coming up to help out that might need a room.      We’ve got a great base and snow in the forecast – just need to work through the next several days to get everything back in order.

February 28, 2022

All trails in the Lake Gogebic Area are reported to be in good to excellent condition.    Groomers are out hitting them all daily.    Temps to warm up a bit to the 20’s.   Snow in the forecast for Tuesday and looks like some accumulating snow this upcoming weekend.    March is the time to ride and it looks like Mother Nature is cooperating with us!  Fingers crossed!

February 22, 2022

Snow and blowing snow today with poor visibility on Lake Gogebic.   1-2 foot of snow is forecasted for Monday & Tuesday.   Lake Gogebic Area Trails are reported to be in good to excellent condition.   Groomers continue to be out daily.     Plan ahead, take a map with you and stay with your group.   Nothin’ worse than getting turned around on Lake Gogebic during a snowstorm.   The good news is that this is just what we need to ensure some good late season riding!   Hafe sun and stay safe!

Trails in the Lake Gogebic Area area all in good to excellent condition.  Temps today are going to be frigid and then warming up to the high teens/20’s later this week.    Continuous snow is keeping trails fresh.   All Gogebic Area Groomers are running – and are doing a great job!    Snow is in the forecast later this week to make for an awesome weekend!   Dress warm – plan your stops – ride safe!!!

January 11, 2022

Gogebic Area Trails are all in fair to good condition with the exception of 8E which is very thin – especially after Ewen.   Have a groomer down and groomers are working round the clock to keep up.    Thanks very much from the sister clubs who are helping out right now!    Cold temps and daily snow are in our forecast this week!

January 5, 2022

You want snow – we’ve got snow.   Over 8″ of new today and nothing but snow in the forecast.  Groomers have been out – cleared the way through 8W and have stated that are trails are looking beautiful!   With more snow falling throughout the day and cold temps in the forecast, trails will be in very good if not excellent riding condition.
Enjoy our trails, be safe, and be sure to join a club where you ride!

Gogebic Area Grooming is reporting poor condition and is suspending Grooming Operations until Mother Nature gets on board.   We lost a lot of snow overnight but temps today are in high teens and have had flurries all day.    Got a few days of snow in the forecast, but we need a good blast to pull it all back together.   Will post an update early next week.     Be positive – think snow.    Do the Heikki Lunta!!

1 N is Spotty. Still working on freezing it in..
102 is GREAT

December 7, 2021

About 15″ of snow over the past couple of days with sub zero temps.   Groomers have been out round the clock moving snow, filling in wet spots and getting the trails in shape.   Very early riding conditions and the more people that we can keep off the trails right now, the better off we will be in the long run.  Lake is not rideable as yet.  We are off to a great start – keep dancing and sending snow thoughts!

February 22, 2021

Lots of traffic over the past weekend and looks like we’ve got a bit of a warm up early part of this week, with temps dropping later in the week and snow forecasted for a couple days this week.     All trails in the Lake Gogebic Area are still reported to be in good to excellent condition.   All trails were groomed Sunday night with the exception of 1N due to a drag failure.  Groomers will be heading out when temps permit.   Mother Nature rules.

 

January 18, 2021

Gogebic Area Groomers have been out and all trails have been hit and reporting that trails are in decent shape and actually quite better than anticipated. There are still some areas where rocks are showing up, but groomers are attempting to cover with available snow. Daily snow and cold temps are in the forecast this week. It’s snowing right now and has been all morning. Hoping that the LES machine turns on this week. Be safe and use caution as trails can be great one second and not so great a second later!Lake Gogebic Area trails are reporting to be thin, flat and in fair to good condition.    Use caution as a trail could be excellent in one spot and challenging in the next instant.    According to our groomers, one good plowable snowfall is going to push our trails from good to EXCELLENT conditions.

Groomers, business owners and staff and working really hard to get through these time and we certainly appreciate all the support we receive from our visitors and guests!   Lake Gogebic is the best place to stay and ride and we are all hoping to be able to open our doors and welcome you back!    Keep dancing for snow – and we will see you soon!
