Gogebic Area Groomers have been out hitting all our trails and reporting that they are in great shape. Temps look to increase over the next few days – but nothing to be concerned about given the massive amounts of snow we’ve received. In addition,John Dee says that we may be in for another foot of snow this weekend and possibly even a heavy St. Paddy’s Day Storm.
We’ve got a lot of good riding to be had this March
