Ironwood Trail Report – Gogebic Range Trail Authority – 01/06

Friday 01/06/2017 – Trails are shaping up nice!

Overall Conditions: Trails are in good to very good condition! As of Friday morning all trails have been groomed in the last 24-36 hours. Cold temps have really allowed the trails to set up. We worked tirelessly to get the corner berms worked back and we continue to try and lay snow on the icy areas.

Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay Crossing:

Overall rating: good to very good condition.

Some thin spots due to traffic, Groomed 7-11pm 1/3/17, will be groomed Friday 1/6/17 as well

Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield:

Overall rating: Good condition.

This section has been groomed daily to get the corner berms back under control. It is very tight, corners remain icy, please ride slowly. We noticed several spots were riders out-drove their headlights/trail conditions resulting in blown corners. Please ride with caution, we are grooming as much as possible to lay snow in the corners but they will remain icy, especially on the weekends.

Trail 2 from Wakefield to Marenisco:

Overall Rating: Good condition.

The re-route is still active onto Great Lakes Road from the high-line. The marsh has not yet had snow pushed into it to freeze it, we expect to do that this week/weekend. Last groomed 1/6/2017.

Trail 8 from Bingo’s to Tula Crossing:

Overall Rating: Good condition.

This unplowed county road fairs well as it is our northern most trail and typically sees the most snow. Last groomed 1/5/17.

Trail 160 from Walmart to Montreal River (WI):

Overall Rating: CLOSED, Seeking volunteers to help open southern half of trail

The club is actively evaluating & planning the signing requirements as well as the brushing requirements to get the trail opened from Norlund Rd. & south. We hope to have the southern half of the trail opened by mid-January. The club is excited to send out the Bridge Replacement Project for bidding as all environmental studies are complete and the project completely approved. The club is planning a project completion in mid February. We need local members who use this trail to come forward to help sign and maintain it. It’s a lot of fun to meet new people and share the love for our sport with people from the area!

Trail 11N (Southboundary Rd) / 11S (Winchester, WI):

Overall Raiting: CLOSED for the season. Seeking volunteers to help open the trails!

The club is actively seeking help to get the trail evaluated and prioritized for opening 11S next summer. One of the areas most favorite trails was lost due to logging operations and an inability to reroute. Then, the task of getting the trail back open was hindered by beaver flooding issues and a lack of labor. We need volunteers to step up and help get this gorgeous trail open next season!

Congrats to our great friends across the border in WI for their amazing award received!! Its fantastic to see their hard work get the respect it deserves! Volunteer trail groups make communities and strong motorized volunteer trail groups remain some of the most vital with their ability to attract guests at a normally desolate time of year. #congrats #snobunnies #fearDAbunnies #headsinbedsThe Presque Isle Chamber of Commerce presented the SnoBunnies with an ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR award last night. What an honor this is!!! This is only possible because of a great board of directors, many volunteers, club members and phenomenal groomer operators. ... See MoreSee Less

If you see Jerry Nezworski "Nezzie" out today be sure to wish that man a happy birthday! He is pictured on the right along with his partner in crime Calvin Kangas, who we lost this past summer. As you can see, Jerry is no fun to be around!! (J/K!). It's been a tough year to stay motivated with the loss of our dear friend, but Jerry has picked up the motivation torch and continues to light fire after fire with it. He asks that you wish him a happy birthday with a donation - any amount - to his St. Jude's Fundraiser on his personal page. Jerry is the "Bread Man" in these here parts delivering Bimbo Bakeries USA goods to businesses across the western U.P. and Iron Range of Wisconsin. Come buy him a beer tomorrow at our club meeting, 6pm @ Aurora Club in Ironwood. #Jerrynezworski #Birthday #ClubFamily #thankyouJerry ... See MoreSee Less

We continue to execute our trail-permit funded trail improvement projects, despite the weather! Thank you to Dean Pearson Logging & Excavating for working with club member Deb F. to extend two culverts on GRTA Portion of trail 8 (we manage the western most portion of trail 8). The projects helped move the trail 14' further away from the road to dramatically increase the safety of the trail. It also helps us be better teammates with the county's plowing operations. We still have one very important project to kick off, which should be soon! Way to go GRTA Team! #mondaymotivation #neverquit #forthetrails #fortheriders #snowmobile #club #allvolunteer ...

It's fall storm season and windblown dead trees are dropping like hot cakes at a pancake breakfast! If you're out riding please help the club by picking up or cutting them out of the way. Thank you to Chris Umland and his wife Melissa Umland for taking the time to do some clearing for us last weekend. It takes many hands to keep trails open and looking good. #beamember #helpaclub #falltrailwork #sledclub #orvclub #clubstuff #thankyouvolunteers ... See MoreSee Less

Ironwood Trail Report – Gogebic Range Trail Authority – 12/29

The western U.P. has got a bull’s-eye on it for some moderate to heavy lake effect snow from now until Wednesday next week! Get up here, trails are flat, smooth and fast. We have some early season hazards to look out for, but we are really happy with trail conditions given the weather last weekend. Come stay and play! #GRTA #HeikkiLuntaSnowDance
