Great News!! Our #3 groomer just arrived today! We are so happy to have 3 groomers out on the trails. With all these perfect conditions; some very cold temperatures along with all the snow we have and all the snow in our forecast for Saturday evening (8 + inches) our trails are going to be in the best shape! And just in time for the busy holiday week between Christmas and New Years. Remember please, there will be lots of families out on the trails during this holiday period, some will be inexperienced. So please ride on only one side of the trail, use slower speeds and keep your eyes opened for young riders.
I’m still going to remind you all to – please – give the groomers the right of way. It’s much more difficult to pull a stuck groomer out than it is to pull a snowmobile out and they can’t just drive through anything as might be believed. And, of course, please stay on marked trails. Riding in unmarked areas can result in; 1) losing a granted easement, 2) getting a ticket and/or 3) hitting an object hidden in the snow, none of which we want to see happen.
***Also be mindful that a bridge on trail 8, just east of Bergland is out and it is marked. The trail will be rerouted over the dam at the north end of the lake where the trail was a couple years ago.
We’re happy to mention that the old “Mobil” gas station has reopened once again. The new owners have renamed it the “Bergland Outpost”.
That’s all for now from Carolyn at the Hoop. I will keep you posted as often as conditions change. For additional information about the Lake Gogebic area we invite you to visit the only official website of the Lake Gogebic Area Chamber of Commerce at www.LakeGogebicArea.com

*PLEASE – Mark your calendars for the first ever “sky lantern release” on New Year’s Eve, midnight (Eastern Time) at the Hoop ‘N Holler Tavern. The lanterns will be sold for only $5.00 each as a fund raiser for Gogebic Area Grooming. Please come and help us ring in the New Year with this beautiful sight
