It’s Snowing! We have snow forecasted for our area. Thanks Mother Nature! Last storm on 1/19/2023 was about 5 inches. It appears most of the accumulation that is expected will fall on Wednesday (tomorrow) during the day and on Friday. Hopefully this is the kick off to our winter and we will be seeing more “white gold”!
Due to past warm weather and wheeled-vehicle traffic, huge ruts were in the trails, which is bad for snowmobiles! The groomer had to focus more on grading the wooded trails to flatten them out. Which left a frozen gravel mixed in with the snow base. Base is Thin. Hopefully this snow we are receiving will turn the trails around…only snowmobilers will be using them!
Visit our website at www.justgroomit.org or stop by Burt Lake Marina for details on joining the Indian River Snowmobile Grooming club with a membership donation. Every dollar we get goes right back into the grooming operation. All our drivers and officers are volunteers. Last year we had about 65 individual members and 35 corporate (business) members. If you know a business who’d be a great corporate sponsor please let us know. We have hats and t-shirts (short & long sleeve) for sale too. Even when we can’t groom we still have operational expenses like insurance, two-way radio communication subscriptions, equipment repair, utilities and more. We store and work on the grooming in a building 100% paid for by your generous donations; our equipment is only yards from the DNR trailhead. Thank you!
