Groomer Report

 Here we are at mid-March and as of today there are no rideable trails. The woods has about 2″ of ice base in some areas. Other areas are muddy and the rest is all dirt. The railroad bed is down to cinder/gravel. For most, it’s time to put away the snowmobiles and start thinking summer. This week’s forecast is for spring-like weather and continued sunshine. Unless we are dumped on by a storm our season is likely over. Thank you to everyone for checking in and letting us know you read our report. We love hearing from you and knowing this information helps. That’s what it’s all about. If we don’t get any rideable snow between now and trail closing (March 31st) this will be the last update. As we all know, time flies and before you know it we’ll both be back here talking trail conditions.

Are you interested in a volunteer officer position in our grooming club?  We need a some fresh people to come onboard and learn the ropes.  For more information visit our website and send an email.  

Visit our website at or stop by Burt Lake Marina for details on joining the Indian River Snowmobile Grooming club with a membership donation.  Every dollar we get goes right back into the grooming operation. All our drivers and officers are volunteers. Last year we had about 65 individual members and 35 corporate (business) members.  If you know a business who’d be a great corporate sponsor please let us know. 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.  We store and work on the grooming in a building 100% paid for by your generous donations; our equipment is only yards from the DNR trailhead.  Thank you!
