Over two feet of snow fast fallen in the last week in the Mercer area. Extended forecast shows the next 10 days to be prime riding in Iron County. Based on the conditions we are seeing right now we expect to go all the way through the end of March. Now is the time to plan one last trip up North for some premium trail riding. Please don’t forget about our Snowmobile raffle coming up, be sure to buy your tickets when you are in town. Thank you for your support of the Mercer Area Snow Goers, have fun, enjoy the snow, and ride safe.

Conditions Good to Very Good
Trails are in Excellent shape right now, lots of snow cover and a solid base. With this much show conditions do change quickly with a heavy traffic load. Several hundred sleds ride by and the moguls start to form. We are working hard to stay on top of grooming, but a freshly groomed trail is the best you will find all year. Cold temps have continued this week and we are watching possible snow accumulations on Wednesday and Saturday this week. Now is the time to ride! If you haven’t yet, please do be sure to buy a raffle ticket for our upcoming Snowmobile Raffle. The money we make on this sled goes directly into trail maintenance and this year will help us buy new grooming equipment.
Conditions Good to Excellent
Received 4″ of snow already this week and another 4-8 being forecasted in the next 24 hours (yes, it is snowing right now). Trails are in excellent condition, groomers have been out day and night trying to keep up with the snow and the traffic. We expect another great weekend of riding with a lot of traffic. The base we have combined with the extended forecast should get us riding into March. This is the best the trails have been all year. Ride Safe and Enjoy!
Another 6″ of snow yesterday gives us 10″ in the last couple days. This is the best condition the trails have been in all year and based on the forecast this snow with our base is going to carry us into March with great riding! Now is the time to get in your big trip! This weekend we have a club fundraiser Saturday morning at Around the Corner Pub serving breakfast from 7am to 10:30am, please come out and support the club. We will also have apparel on site for purchase.
4 inches of fresh snow on top of our solid base, the trails are in Excellent shape! Possibility of more snow in the next 48 hours, let’s ride!
