Ironwood Trail Report – Gogebic Range Trail Authority – 12/20

Trail Conditions Report: Tuesday 12/20/16 – Need More snow, Icy conditions exist.

Trail 2 from Hurley to Ramsay: Good to excellent condition. Water hole remains on access trail to Ramsay (Ore House / Keystone Bar). 2-5′ of base

Trail 2 from Ramsay Crossing to Wakefield: Variable, Good to Poor condition. Ditches need more snow on Prospect Rd., ascent to Indianhead from Blackjack has very low snow conditions and is very icy, ride with extreme caution. The club is working with Indianhead to get snow brought to the top of the hill so we can push it down and reestablish a base. The descent from Indianhead to Wakefield also has low snow conditions, ride with caution. The trail from the Krist Gas Station around Sunday lake is drifting badly and the club is working to get that pushed back to provide safer riding and grooming potentials. 0′-2′ of base

Trail 2 from Wakefield to Marenisco: Good Condition. Some low snow spots, but the trail was dozed wider this year due to logging operations (Morgan Mine Rd.) which has resulted in a very nice trail! The bypass around the Great Lakes Rd. swamp remains, the club is working to freeze that up ASAP. 2-5′ of base

Trail 8: Good condition. Needs more snow, skegs still hitting rocks here and there. 2-5′ of base

Trail 160: The bridge project is 100% approved through all environmental review boards. Project is currently being processed for bidding. Expected opening date February 2017. Trail is closed currently south of the bridge. The club is working to get signing and brushing approved so we can begin maintaining the trail for local access.

Traill 11N/11S: Closed for the season. Not enough volunteer labor stepped up to help reopen the trail.

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 ...

Thank you to all that take the time to develop these trails. My husband and I spend all our extra time in the winter on the snowmobile trails riding trails in the winter is a beautiful experience. Can’t wait to see more trails arise Thank you again.

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 – 12/17

Thanks to everyone who came and visited this weekend. We groomed trail 2 and 8 completely Thursday, Friday, Saturday. The ski hill section was groomed Friday and Early Sunday morning. We worked to continue packing in water holes and tried to keep up with the traffic! All trails are now thin and in need of snow. Our rail beds have faired the best, but trails overall remain in fair condition. Snirty in sections but they have froze up well. Warm temps today and Monday will keep the groomers parked. Both have wrenching to be done, we’ll have that after a couple hundred hard miles! Join the club today! Thank you to the MARKESAN SNO-DRIFTERS SNOWMOBILE CLUB members who came up helped brush 160, so thankful! Pictures from Sunday morning, Trail 8. $25. www.gogebicrangeta.org
