Groomer Report

 

Feb 17 2021

Just got back from grooming! I hit Trail 6 East & West, as well as 677, 687 around Caberfae. By far the best conditions I’ve groomed yet this year, with the only Snirt being small areas of 6 West, west of Caberfae Rd. Not many riders out today, which makes for easier grooming… Lots of Thumbs UP from the few riders I did see. Reminder to please pull off trail and stop when seeing a groomer, as we are not supposed to pass any moving sleds. Temps are getting back to more normal range in the coming week. Come up and enjoy some mid-week riding

     Hooray !!!  We Finally have snow to work with. This last system, along with daily lake effect snow has piled up nicely, giving us plenty to work with. Things seem to be holding good as the far as keeping it around. The arctic air is steadily  holding over the area. This is forecast for the next 10 days or so. Dress warm and come enjoy the beautiful scenery. 

Ride Safe, Stay Right & Have Fun!!!

     WoW… What a LOT of traffic over the weekend! It was nice to see the amount of people that were out enjoying our beautiful trail system. We have been out in full force from all 3 barns. That’s 6 sections of the trail system in 1 days work. The trails are shaping up nice! We finally have some snow to work with. There are a few sections of trail that just do not get the snow accumulation, simply due to the canopy not allowing the snow to hit the ground. This can allow for icy spots, especially in the corners.  <RIDE SAFE> The other 95% of trails have a good base allowing for a great groom.

     Please STAY ON TRAIL !!! I have personally seen where people decided to “Boon-Dock” in someone’s hay crop!  As tempting as it is, WE The RIDER Must be respectful of the Trail System as a whole, keeping the adjacent property owners INCLUDED  in that respect !!!  Be Safe,  Have Fun.

We have just started our grooming operations again. All 3 barns are out in full force. Conditions are better however, snowfall has been sporadic so there are still thin spots along the routes, with some icy corners. Most other areas are becoming flat and fluffy. We’ve experienced very cold temperatures lately the snow is nice and crisp!

Please be safe and Stay Right! It’s Busy out there today! Lots of traffic. Please RIDE SAFE,STAY RIGHT and Enjoy the Day.

Trail conditions are hit and miss. The snow fall has not been consistent across the trail system. Some areas have plenty to work with, others not.  We were Finally able to get out and groom some at the beginning of this week. We just need a bit more snow to work with. The lake effect machine is starting to kick back in  so WE Do Our Snow DANCE and hope for the best at this point. There is a system coming in this weekend, lets hope it gives us what we need.

You will see varying conditions from some tight bends down to sand to plenty of flat fluff right around the corner. Lots of riders have been out and enjoyed the day fully, others have just been out. There IS Plenty of snow for a day out riding just some thin spots and moguls. We will be out in full force once we get the snow to work with!

  Please Ride Safe ! Stay Right!!! We have seen a few accidents already this year. You NEVER KNOW Who (or what) is on the other side of that blind curve! We can’t encourage enough, How other peoples safety is relative to YOUR Right thumb. STAY RIGHT, Ride SMART.

We finally have a base! The last snowfall really helped us out. Their was a LOT of traffic over the weekend to get it packed in good. We need the weather to continue to cooperate so we may Start our regular Grooming Schedule. There is no significant accumulation in the near forecast. We are NOT GROOMING at this time however, we were able to make it down all our trails at least one pass to smooth out the moguls. The in town route is very thin in spots! PLEASE be courteous to conditions, property owners and The City of Cadillac. Ride Safe. Stay Right and do your Snow Dance!!!

Well here it is upon us, The First Snow Accumulation of the Season !!! At present. the trails are damp un-frozen sand (it’s soft in spots) but the deer hunters have it packed in pretty good. The storm is forecasted to dump some rain first, which may cause some puddling before it changes to snow. as the temperature drops, and as the “wet” snow accumulates, it may make for some slushy conditions. The temperature is expected to stay well below freezing for the next 10 days. All that being said, the base for this season may well be setting in with all this. The trails will be established by what “WE The Rider” leave behind. It is gonna freeze in for a bit at least, with no above freezing temps in the forecast. If “You The Rider” wish to navigate the trails early, PLEASE Be courteous to the conditions and don’t put it to the bars from a dead stop or use the throttle to see how deep it is. We can’t groom until the trails are packed in with ample snow cover. To the norm, we generally don’t start grooming till mid January. We have been servicing our equipment and the fuel is on the ready! So now the waiting game begins. As a reminder, DNR Requires 4″ to be present for the trails to be open!!! BE SAFE! Stay Right!

========================================================

We have two new trails for you to discover this year–Trail 373 east of the Caberfae Trail Parking Lot and a connector trail (Trail 37) between Mesick and Copemish along the railroad grade.

STAGING AREAS:  Check out our website (address below) for directions  to our staging areas.

PLEASE REMEMBER we have been asked by the State Park folks to stay off the White Pine Trail until there is at least four inches of snow on it…Let’s all respect this request. Thanks!

If you haven’t already purchased your TRAIL PERMIT, now is a good time to do it.  Trail permit dollars help keep the groomers running and the trails brushed and signed.
