Sledheads of Frederic – 03/15

FREDERIC / GAYLORD AREA UPDATE via Sledheads of Frederic –

Its friday morning and 34 degrees and calm in downtown Frederic. I thought we were gonna luck out yesterday as there was no rain all day and then at 3 it started in. Never super hard but steady and enough to knock snow piles down. They were calling for snow overnight but that didnt happen either so we now have alot of puddles and slushy trails. Had a couple people stop by yesterday on their way to the u.p. and I think thats what I am going to get today. I still feel like there will be some diehards trying it out around here but even if it gets cold enough to firm things up and we get a little snow on top most people will hold off. I did have one sled ride into here yesterday but he was a local. I drove right by the trail crossings north of the high school but took pics of trail 7 crossing on 612 by the parking lot here in Frederic and a pic out front of the shop and also trail 7 at the north end of town looking towards gaylord. Its a crap shoot but there is still alot of snow out there but you will have to work for it. Stop in and say hi if you are passing thru, it will help keep me awake. Thanks for checking in. Pete

Gaylord Bureau – 03/01

March 1st , 2019 – 9:34 a.m.

The Gaylord area has received lots of fresh snow this week! The groomers have done a great job clearing out the drifts from the weekend storm and are currently working on smoothing out the trails. Trails are in good condition and should continue improving. We still have a solid 5-6 inch base and there is plenty of fresh snow.

Sledheads of Frederic – 03/01

FREDERIC / GAYLORD AREA UPDATE via Sledheads of Frederic – Certainly doesn’t get any better than this. Sunny and 18 degrees. Weather outlook for the next ten days is perfect. I would imagine there will be a good crowd here this weekend. Trailer counts were 4 at the Days Inn and 14 at the Ramada and I don’t know how many trailers were at Fays Motel but there was a huge cloud of 2 stroke smoke that I could see before I got to the motel from sleds that were sitting there running. Fays is a great place to start out from and Kieth is the head groomer driver too. I will have the Polar Vortex shirts done on Monday or Tuesday and will begin shipping them. I am doing a few extra to have here in the shop. I also am doing this update on my new computer which I am also putting in pics thru my new phone, A world of difference in the quality of the pictures. Lisa is my sidekick on this update as she is sitting here watching me type. Thanks for checking in.All pics were taking this morning. Pete and Please Ride Safely and Stay Right……
