Trails…..Very busy holiday week on the Mercer trails. Grooming continued on Monday, Jan 2nd. As Mercer has cleared out the groomers are working hard to get trails back in shape. Hopefully we will get some snow out of the Lake effect snow advisory that goes into affect tonight until 6pm on Wednesday. One of the drivers went into some of the swamps on Monday with an ice spud. He found 4 – 8 inches of ice. We need closer to 10 inches of ice to get the tractors across. With the trails packed down from the holiday week and the arctic blast coming, hopefully we can try to get across the main swamps.
The flowage is marked from Murray’s Landing to Gateway Lodge.  Please stay within the stakes.
On a sad note….there was one snowmobile fatality in Iron County over the past weekend. Please ride carefully

Early Season Riding Continues

December 28, 2016

The flowage has been staked from Gateway Lodge to Sunken Horse Saloon to Trail 9C to Camp 1 to Donner’s Bay Resort.  Please use caution as there are spots of glare ice.  Reports of little slush.  As for the trails, the groomers have been out but it is impossible to keep up as there is little snow in the woods and the grade is like sugar and will not pack.  There are still trees down from the Christmas Day and Dec 26 ice and wind storm.  The groomers still are unable to get through the swamps.  Reports are that Trail 12 to Midway Bar is passable.  There is a deep water/mud hole on Trail 9 between Camp 1 and Swamp Creek Road. so please go around the hole.  There were reports of open water on Trail 8A.  That situation has been fixed.  Remember this is early season riding so please ride with caution.

Trails are Looking Positive

December 16, 2016
Trails 17S and parts of 51E, besides the swamps, were groomed yesterday.  Each time the driver backed into the swamp the drag broke through.  Also, finished 10A to the swamp, 310 Road to the White Thunder Riders sign, then back.  Trails 12A and 12B will be groomed tonight.  Trail 12 to Swamp Creek Road has not been brushed or rolled as we are unable to get in until it freezes up enough.  Springstead is going to try and pack the trails there this weekend.
We are a week to 10 days from grooming through the swamps.  This is based on cold weather and we need lots of snowmobile traffic to push the frost down.  Things are looking positive.
