Groomer Report

Halfway through January already. We received 3 in of very light fluff last night which made everything look great. It is a bit crunchy and icy underneath that. Trails are in good to very good condition right now. Snow is a bit light South of Moran, so the RR grade will show wear and tear this weekend without fresh stuff. Last I heard, all of the water has frozen up, except the flowing one in the middle of the caffey, and the deep one on the Cut River trail. Both those trails will be groomed on Friday night, so I will post a report on those when I get it. The caffy is long, but shallow, and the caffey is short, but 1.5ft deep. Just be cautious and you will be OK.

I have only groomed St. Ignace once, and it is still too thin to groom again. Getting to the shell stations on both ends is doable, but a bit dicey, use caution.

Showchasers and TASA have connected with good trails to the North and West, Cedarville is still a crap shoot with the swamp, and their Northern trial was still closed with trees last I heard, so I don recommend riding East just yet.

Big weekend storm?? They are now calling for Friday night of 1-3, and an addition 3-5 by noon on Saturday. Not good timing for grooming for sure, but the snow is needed. If we get good snow, and after a groom, I would put our triail into very good condition. It is going to get tore up fast on Saturday without a groom, but after that they will be in great shape. I will caution that every forecast last weekend was to get 8in of snow, and get got…. a trace. So lets see where this goes.

Sorry I have not been out to get trail pics today. I will post up something when I get it.
