Grand Marais Trail Report – 12/17

A quick report on trail conditions – poor to nonexistent! Over the weekend and the last several days we had temperatures in the high 30’s and low 40’s with rain.

Needless to say, most of the snow melted and there are huge water holes opened up on all the trails. What snow didn’t melt away, turned to sheer ice!

Ditches and creeks are running deep and fast. Starting late yesterday evening, we got enough snow to cover the ground in town. In the snowbelt, they got maybe 3 to 4 inches of snow. It’s going to take a while for everything to freeze down
again. We need a good SNOW STORM before I’d advise making the trip up.

As always, Ride Safe and Bring them Home Alive!

Grand Marais Trail Report – 12/02

As for the Trails: Caution Flags are UP. Driver Marc was out putting up signs and said there really isn’t much snow on the trails, there is about 3-4 inches on Trail 8 West (H-58 heading west from town), Trail 888 had up to 10 inches of semi-packed snow but warned to watch out for holes in the trails, wet spots, and bare areas on the pavement.

There has been a lot of snowmobile traffic buzzing about since Thursday and they’ve managed to pack down the fluff. Plus the warmer weather and rainy conditions last week took it’s toll on the snow. On a brighter side, the forecast is calling for daytime temperatures to be in the 20’s most of the week, sub-zero and single digits at night with 40 to 70% chances of snow all week.

The cold could create a lot of ice on the wet spots and holes. BUT, they are calling for some snow tonight and 1 to 3 inches tomorrow. I will try to get a better report out to ya’s later today or in the morning.
