Riders who aren’t too fussy will be happy with the new snow we’ve got. There isn’t enough snow to groom but there’s snow to ride on. The Winter Weather Advisory was revised this morning, with new accumulation of 2-4″ predicted. We awoke to 2″ more this morning and it’s quiet now. If we reach the expected high of 34 this snow will settle some and we could see a little water out there. Right now we’re only at 28 and tomorrow’s temps are expected to stay under freezing. A local rider checked in again to report smooth conditions on his ride last night. He rode our wooded loop to Wolverine and took the railroad trail back (north) to the DNR lot at White Road. He said even the railroad grade was in surprisingly good shape. So with this knowledge the decision is yours…If you’re in the area and able, hit the trails today and enjoy some spring riding!
If you’re interested in supporting local grooming please visit www.justgroomit.org or stop by Burt Lake Marina for details on joining the Indian River Snowmobile Grooming club with a membership donation. We have hats and t-shirts (short & long sleeve) for sale too. Even when we can’t groom we still have operational expenses like insurance, two-way radio communication subscriptions, equipment repair, utilities and more. Thanks to member donations we’re almost done with interior/finish construction at our new equipment barn! We now store and work on the grooming equipment only yards from the DNR trailhead. Your support makes all the difference and we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you!
