We picked up 5 inches of heavy wet snow yesterday followed by light rain, these temps show that it should be a great weekend for riding as the trails will setup nicely. Trails have a solid base and we continue to get out and groom. There are still some wet areas but overall the system is in good condition.
All trails listed below have been groomed with tractors and are fair to good condition:
Trail 17 N S
Trail 51 E to MW
Trail 19 to J from Lazy Ace
Trail 12 a b
Trail 10 to both sides of swamp
Trail 8 a to and from Bass Lake Rd
Trail 10 E and 8
Trail 19 and 20
Trail 19 North of Cedar Lake Rd is done logging but not being groomed yet
Trail 182 still needs some more work
14 and 9c are plowed and will not be groomed by us this year
Trail 12 not groomed due to open water

Conditions: Fair to Good
Trails held up very well through the heavy traffic over the weekend. Groomers were out all day yesterday getting the trails flattened from a very busy week in the Northwoods. We still have some trails that need some work but overall conditions are fair to good. Of course as always as of late we need to watch the forecast as this weekend we are expecting unseasonably warm temps. Be safe and let’s ride!

Mostly rain yesterday with some light flurries throughout the night. Forecast for today says 1-3″. Overall not enough to get our groomers out. Northern part of Iron County (White Thunder Riders) is still grooming, trail 17 (the grade) is still open and after 3-10 Road you will find more snow.

We have received flurries for the last couple days but nothing substantial. We got out and rode yesterday, we found the grade (Trail 17) had a solid base, no rocks, gravel, or dirt showing anywhere. However, it is froze solid with minimal snow to cool down the machine. Once we got to 3-10 Rd the snow amounts did pick up and White Thunder Riders of northern Iron County were out grooming last night. In short you can use the grade to go north but the riding in Mercer now is poor. We only need 4-6 inches of good snow to get out and do some grooming, let’s keep watching the forecast and as conditions change we will let you know ASAP. FYI we closed a section of Trail 19 from Cedar Lake Rd to the Winchester Grade for logging. It is really wet in there and the logger needs to use the trail. We will let you know as soon as they are done 1-2 weeks.
