Cadillac Area Trail Report – Cadillac Trails – 02/23

Tuesday–February 23, 2010

We didn’t get much of that snow that blanketed the southern part of the state yesterday. And, what did fall, didn’t last long because of the mild temperatures. The snow gauge this morning showed only a one-half inch increase. There is still plenty of snow in the forest but it is wearing thin or non-existent in some open areas and on curves elsewhere. The groomers are going out every day as long as temperatures and conditions permit. Most of the forest trails are excellent with some areas marginal. The remainder of the trail system could be rated good to poor.

Snow gauge*: 6 inches

I’m back from my fishing trip, so I’m back to work. I’m sure you all heard about the State wide melting this last weekend. Sunny, high traffic and 35 degrees doesn’t make for great snowmobile trails. The trails did take a beating, but I did see where the groomers did go out and try to flatten the trails out, getting ready for the forecasted snow. That is what’s nice around here, we are in the middle of six different grooming clubs, (which we are members of four) and if one club isn’t grooming today, one of the other clubs are grooming today. We did get an inch or so on 2-22-10, but more snow is needed. The forecast sounds like we are going to get some snow later today and tomorrow and again on Friday and Saturday, but with any forecast I’ll believe it when I see it. If we just get even a few inches, we will be in pretty fair shape.

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 02/23

The trails did take a beating over the weekend with warm temps and heavy traffic. We received and inch or so yesterday with more on the way. Probably an inch today.. They are still being groomed and coming up good in 90% of the places. the usual high traffic areas near Ranch and Fife Lake are dirt or pavement, so getting into Fife Lake and Kalkaska would be tricky to access. The woods still has a good amount of snow looks like getting better heading toward the weekend. Maybe 2 more weeks.. cheers Brett
