Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/27

Greetings Sledders,

Quick update. I wouldn’t ordinarily generate a report so closely behind the last one but conditions have changed and I know many of you want to come up this weekend and may be apprehensive based on my last report.

We didn’t get anything out of the system that just went through but we are now experiencing the wrap around snow in the form of Lake Effect.

It’s difficult to say how much is on the ground already or to say how much we will ultimately receive. Those are an unknown because of the wind and it’s anybody’s guess when it comes to LE snows.

We do have enough now to upgrade the trail condition slightly to fair. However, beware of the ice base on the Southern half or so of our trails as it is everywhere. The Northern half is for the most part packed snow covered by fresh.

We are scheduled to groom through Saturday night. A warm up starts Sunday and continues all week so grooming efforts may just end for the season Saturday. That’s not set in stone but it is a possibility.

The next report will be the final for the season and will be out on Wednesday or so.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy, and The Kids

Sledheads of Frederic , Michigan Snowmobiling

Memorial Day Weekend. Machines are rolling into town this weeekend. Many of them at the Swamp and many at the Frederic Inn where they have two new big signs up. Several times this weekend I could see large dust clouds off in the distance with large groups of riders out on the trails. If I was a bit more ambitious I would have Sledheads open in the summer. As you are out there riding weather it's summer or winter please ride safely. ... See MoreSee Less

With the lack of snow in recent yrs u probably wud get more business in the summer

Probably a better business model to be open in the summer considering how crappy the winters have been. Plus the season is much longer.

We was parked next to that yellow one all by itself

I bring the young boys there every weekend for carry out for breakfast best carry out breakfast in town, or dine in ...

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/25

Greetings Sledders,

The trails can only endure so many body blows by the Sun and this last round has taken it’s toll.
Here is the latest poop by segment:
Trail #7 from Grayling to Frederic is poor.
Trail #679 fared better and is snow covered from Frederic to the intersection of #79.
Trail #79 is good on the upper half, the Southern half is poor.
Trail #47 ( Lovells ) is fair to good according to the driver. The real challenge is getting to it as Lewiston Grade Rd is down to gravel from the Frederic Trail turn off to the start of the Lovells Trail.
Trail #7 South of M-72. I will groom that in the morning but I don’t expect anything better than poor. Better to have an ugly flat trail than an ugly bumpy one.
The weather forecast is calling for some snow on Thursday and Friday although it will be Lake Effect so it’s anybody’s guess as to where and how much we can expect.
Temps look to hold thru Saturday with yet another warm up on Sunday and Monday followed by more snow.

We will be grooming thru the weekend. If sledders are going to ride the trails we are compelled to groom them. Grooming school 101.

Wish I had better news but it is what it is.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Kids
