Groom all the way to the greenhaven please. 🤫

From Phil - Ran trail 8 East 11miles past the pine stump parking lot. Lots of traffic out on the trails. Sleds were still out at 1:30am. 8 East was pretty bumpy, it smoothed out real nice though.Even after grooming some areas of the trails are so soft the trails aren't holding up for too long.My guess is when we’re widening the trails, the drag pulls in all that early season deep powdery snow from the sides of the trails. And boy does the machine pull hard and if you get too far over to the side the machine, just sinks down. Lucky we don't get stuck.8 East is smooth and has lots of beautiful scenery with snow covered trees . Tonight is the first night, in the last 13 days, that I felt like I was out grooming. Minimal storm damage tress to deal with no trail signage to put up. Hum.... I have heard, that we need to start working SMARTER.... Maybe I shouldn't be pulling that soft fluffy snow on the trail.

Sorry..... I had to add my 2¢. 😂

Grand Marais Trail Report – 12/05

GRAND MARAIS UPDATE via Grand Marais Sno-Trails Assoc.​

FYI: the following trails have been cleared of trees-8 West out of GM, 89, 888 & 443. They HAVE NOT been groomed. Trail 8 east out of GM and 88 haven’t been touched yet. We’re doing some much needed maintenance on the groomers this morning and when that’s done we will update you on the game plan for today!!

<>

We have some snowmobiling friends who have volunteered to come up to GM this weekend to help us with this monster clearing task on the trails. If you could comment here-we need to know who will be here to work Friday and those that can be here for Saturday. We’ll set up a game plan and post it here. We are so appreciative of your offers of help. Our guys are already exhausted and have a long ways to go. Again-thank you!!
