Snow Cover: Fair
Date of Report: January 30, 2017
For the week of Jan 30 – Feb 6:
Colder temperatures (especially at night!) and snow is in the forecast and just what we need to get our conditions back in shape. We had about 7” of snow last night and there’s snow forecasted for almost every day this week. Trail conditions continue to improve daily and we had riders in that said that the “were actually not bad at all” and they also said that they were a lot better than the expected. Groomers have been out and are working hard to get this back in shape. 1 South is still plagued with wet spots and an impassable spot on trail 12 between Greenland and Ontonagon was reported, however, it was also reported that the “trail was groomed to perfection on the way up to it”.
As previously posted, please stay on the trails in Bergland. You are not allowed to ride the highway through town and may be ticketed. You can only access the gas station by following the trail through the park and crossing directly across from the gas station from Antonio’s Restaurant. If riding the roads through Merriweather (down to the Hoop ‘N Holler Tavern or to the lake) please remember to ride at the posted speed limit of 25 mph and stay to the side and as always be aware that this is a residential area and watch for traffic. Also, access through the Walleye Lodge to the Lake is limited to their guests and customers.
There’s a lot of winter and good riding to be had. Just waiting for Mother Nature to turn her snow machine back on. She likes to keep us on our toes with her “reality checks”. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and we look forward to seeing you very soon!!
Have a great week….
