Groomers report from Monday - Both drivers reported the trails are in good to very good condition except trail 3 south to Wisconsin it is good/fair because of the heavy traffic this trail gets. We've had a inch or two of new snow and a couple more in the forecast for this week. Conditions continue to improve! ... See MoreSee Less

I know you guys have been getting some flak but thank you for everything you do it is appreciated

I appreciate what you guys do too, but if you are responsible for grooming the trail between Land O Lakes and Watersmeet you can’t possibly call it good. Washboard would be more accurate, at least as half an hour ago.

Day 2 riding out of Watersmeet, trails have been great east west and north

Gogebic Area Grooming

1-22-19, we had all groomers out last night and this morning. Here is a video from early this morning on trail 13 south of the Root Cellar. Finally got through the beaver pond to groom. We pulled snow from the outer edges to make a better base for the trail since it’s thin with snow south of Lake Gogebic. ... See MoreSee Less

These guys are awesome.

Is trail 13 on the east side of the lake open the whole way?

It was very thin on Sunday.

Getting close to this time of year, just a reminder to everyone that the fall color time is probably the best time to come up, we will start getting color by Sept 1st. with peak usually around first week of Oct. , and still have lots of color till 3rd week, this area was rated#1 even over New England for beauty a few years ago! ...

Looks like winter has finally arrived, we have about 12" on lakeshore with up to 24" away from the lake, we are grooming snowmobile trails with them being in good to very good shape, the Porkies ski hill opened last Friday so there's plenty to do in this area this time of year. We still have lots of openings including lakefront chalets.
Remember !! if you got good snow by you we will have a lot more and a lot less traffic!

You guys are the best - guided fishing was amazing Don - one of the coolest memories of the summer. We will make our way up there again for sure!

Man we need to get back up !

Miss you folks!

Hope you have a great season Don.

Miss you guys hope to see you soon !

We have stayed in the three bedroom suite the last couple years. I highly recommend it if you're riding in the area. It's like your own thousand square-foot ranch. Plenty of room to park and your own separate entrance.

I wish we could make it up there over the Christmas break. Maybe next year!
