We received about 8″ of new snow yesterday. Trails are shaping up. Our temps for the next few days highs will be in the 20’s with low in the teens. Expect icy corners.

The Gogebic Trail Authority reported trails were last groomed 1/8/19. Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay Crossing is very good. Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield was last groomed 1/8/19 is good and is icy; the hill climbs to Indianhead from Blackjack Big Snow Resort on the west side and east side climb up from Wakefield are icy. Wakefield to Marenisco is good to very good. There is logging 3 miles east of Wakefield use caution. Logging trucks have the right away so please give them the right of way.

Trail 8 from Bingos to Tula Crossing is good to very good it was last groomed 1/8/19. Bingo’s is closed and has no gas….

Trail 160 is good; last groomed 1/4/19. The southern 10 miles is a bit rough yet. The northern 15 miles is beautiful. There are a few water holes about 5 miles north of Ironwood. They are small but the hazards exist. Ride with caution.

Trail 11S CLOSED was last groomed on 1/2/19. The water hazard had over 8″ of ice, some spots 12″ and it broke back open. We do not advise riding it as side trails around it will be tough as there are many tag elders. Please be aware for a water hazard 1.75 miles south of the Chaney Lake outflow/West Branch of Presque Isle River

Trail 11 N is closed indefinitely.

Trail 1 N from Bergland and the North Shore of Lake Gogebic is in very good condition. White Pine to Silver City is ridable, but in poor condition. There is one large marked waterhole about 4/10 south of Silver City which they hope to get to this week.

Trail 1 S (to Presque Isle has been recently groomed. Conditions are good but the snow gets thin south of Marenisco. It has been groomed from Marenisco north to the West Shore Resort and ends there for now.
