Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report: Lake Gogebic, Michigan – December 24, 2016

Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Getting Better All the Time
Date of Report: December 24, 2016
Area Report:

Present reports have indicated that conditions are rideable, however there are still some wet areas out there.    We posted a ride on our FB page of Trail 1 that was shared by Casey at the Lake Gogebic Motel so check that out.  We’ve got a bit of a warmup forcasted for Monday,  but after that our temps should get back to mid teens and hopefully conditions will continue to improve after that.  We did have some additional snow yesterday which helped out.   There is snow in the forecast for Christmas Day and John Dee is predicting between 12-24” between Dec 27 and Jan 1.    Our access trail from the Lodge to the main trails has been groomed and groomers have been out on the trails with drags and grooming will continue as permissible.   We have to get through the beginning of the week and then hopefully cold and snow will make for a great New Years week here on Lake Gogebic.   We are going to head out tonight and hopefully on Christmas Day and we will let you know what we encounter.

Jim has been working really hard and today he will be putting the finishing touches on new bathroom remodels in the Walleye and Northern.   I will share photos later and that makes a total of 7 new tiled showers at the Walleye Lodge!!!       This lodge business is not for the faint of heart and probably more than we bargained for – but we’ve come a long way.   We are blessed to have great guests and are grateful to all the support and love that you’ve shown to us.    We work hard to create a nice experience and take enjoyment in helping to make your trip to the UP a very memorable one.

From our family to yours – we wish you a very Merry Christmas and send our fondest thoughts for a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!
