Grooming was done from Marenisco to Bessemer on trail 2. Some icy spot’s but trail is very good.

Trail 11 South was groomed last night but as if 3:30 this morning I didn’t get to talk to the groomer.

Trail 160 some of that was groomed last night coming across a water hole along with ice on the hill’s. Grooming will continue on the trail this morning. Overall trail’s are good for what we been dealing with

Good morning. Couple thing’s to note or be aware of if riding our trails. Water is at the top of 1n. Easily able to get around. Also water has submerged the first mile of 8w to Wakefield right when you cross over M28. That section hasn’t been groomed but sleds are getting through. 1s where it comes out of the woods by West Shore Resort and runs the ditch is also not being groomed until conditions allow. Otherwise all else good. 13n, 8e, 8w and 1n all covered last night.. Have a wonderful day and get out and ride!

Both groomers went out last night. We are using our spare John Deere Tractor and forgot to put the Groomer Tracker in it. (that will happen today) Drivers reported trails are fair with good areas. Icy in corners and spots throughout the trails so use caution. Couple bare spots that we’ll get filled in. We will be grooming nightly as long as we can. Ride Right Ride Safe
