Sunday Morning Snow & Trail Report ….. 1/15/12
by Heart Lake Resort on Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 11:06am
No new snow overnight. Still cold though – 13.8 in Gaylord at Heart Lake as I write this. Watched the groomer go by yesterday. Most of our guest are ready to head out and ride again this morning. Seems like some are moving a little slow though! lol Late night for some I guess. I would rate the trails in our area overall as only fair to marginally good in some areas. Still good snow in the back country and on unplowed seasonal roads and two-tracks. Main trails took a beating from the weekend traffic. However, the majority of them still are snow covered and certainly can be rode without damaging your sliders or carbides. Where the narrow spots are or where they are in the open, well, that’s where I’m seeing some snirt. No bare ground though like last weekend. These cold temps are a savior. The good news is that we are supposed to receive a fair amount of snow starting Tuesday with a new system moving in. However, I’m a firm believer of only reporting what I see on the ground or more importantly on the trail. We still have folks coming up and we can put them in the right direction, but as everyone does, we need more snow. Safe riding and safe travels to you. John at Heart Lake Resort in Gaylord. ps. Weather you stay with us or not, you are most welcome to give us a call for trail and snow conditions or simply for information on the area – 989-732-5081. We have plenty of free maps as well and I’m willing to share my back country riding places with you.

We received about 8 – 10 inches of new snow depending on the area with much colder temperatures. Grooming is being done this weekend. Trails are in nice shape. It’s a wonderful weekend to be sledding! As always check back here for updates!
Ray’s Retreat Country Inn – 01/14
BRRR… Started out bitter cold this morning. That didn’t stop anyone from getting out on the trails. We ended up with about 8 inches of snow. Its good riding to the east and west. Snow gets thin the further north you go. Trails are groomed and everyone is reporting good fun rides.
