Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/18

Greetings Sledders,

Many thanks to the Price group for stopping by during our groomer scheduling meeting to thank the guys for providing them good rides all week, at least on our trail system. Taking that time was certainly appreciated.

We had two guys in that rode Wednesday and picked up 100 miles and said that they probably saw 12 or 13 miles of what they would consider rough trails and that occurred elsewhere. What’s the big deal about this you ask? They are vintage sled riders on 1980 Ski-Doos, in a phone con with Keith after their ride (his name too) he said he was happy with conditions and glad he made the decision to pull the trigger and come up.

WEEKEND AHEAD: Not sure how everything is going to hold up and this is primarily based on the weather wizards forecast. They are calling for temps that will be flirting with the freeze mark and the scariest part is the partly cloudy piece of the forecast. There are too many variables with this type of situation to feel comfortable with predicting what if anything will happen. Traffic volume, amount of cloud cover, humidity in the air etc. Just a heads up so you are aware of the forecast ahead of us. Off trail and any trail segment that is relatively clean likely will not be impacted regardless of how much sun we get.

GROOMING: We will be back at full strength tomorrow when we take delivery of JD-1 and the weekend schedule has been set. The day time grooming schedule may be altered somewhat depending on how much sunshine we get. We have 2 out of 3 drags that will not process wet snow. As a result we may have to do some very late night runs.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe, Keith, Sandy and The Girls.

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/15

Greetings Sledders,

Those that chose to stay with us this weekend all reported good to great rides and we had a couple that opted to go further north at the outset of the weekend and ultimately landed here for Sunday night and they reported that they wished that they started here instead.

The Williams have been here all weekend and reported some awesome rides, and it never hurts to stay where the groomers originate from in order to get the inside scoop on where we are headed. We’re not stingy with that info in order to get you the best ride possible in these difficult snow drought times.

The Price group is currently in for the week and their maiden ride today for that span of time has been reported as good with pretty much improving conditions after the weekend traffic.

GROOMING: We are on schedule to continue with our regular routine of temporarily re-arranging snow on a snowmobile trail because that’s what we really do. Due to the fact that the inside of the corners are icy all we can do is temporarily move the the snow from the berm on the outside of the corners back to the inside of same and after 6 sleds blast through the berm is back because there’s nothing for the snow to stick to, nature of the beast.

According to the latest weather info we are down about 22" of snowfall for the year which has made this one a tough one to groom on and a tough one to report on, it is what it is, yet folks are still reporting good rides.

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