Western U P Snowmobile Trail Report— 12/29/2022

Gogebic Range Trail Authority – ORV & Snowmobile Club

Trail Report 12/29/202

Please be careful out riding. The wet heavy snow on trees mixed with (very) light freezing rain is bringing down more trees. Groomers have cut back the bumps tonight across our main corridors. TRAILS WILL BE BUMPY EARLY AFTERNOON AND THRU THE EVENING, GET OUT EARLY IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE WHAT THE BUSIEST WEEK OF RIDING DOES TO THE TRAILS.


Lake Gogebic Area Groomers

Trail Report 12/29/202

Groomers have reported that they have all trails and access trails set.  Grooming has been resumed however with the abundance of traffic and temperatures the trails are not getting a chance to set up.   Groomers will continue to try to keep the bumps knocked down so that they don’t freeze and become a constant headache all season.    Groomers are doing everything that they possibly can to keep up and have a constant rotation of operators going out.   Our area is being bombarded with traffic.   We thank everyone for visiting our area and understand that we everyone is doing the very best they can!  


U P Thunder Riders Watersmeet

Trail Report 12/26/2022

Most snowmobile trails are only 14 to 16 feet wide, you have to be spot on when driving the groomer, cause one miss and off the trail you go! It is heart pounding and intense. These guys and girls are out doing this for 8 to 14 hours. Thunder Riders groomers will be heading out today please use more caution than normal for the next couple of days as they work hard to shape up the trails. A big applause to all the groomer drivers!!
