Frederic / Gaylord Area Trail Report – Sledheads of Frederic – 03/20

Spring, Spring, Beautiful Spring it makes me want to dance and sing…

I actually wrote that on a little poem in first grade. I didn’t know back then that I would want to have snow all the time.

Today is the first day of spring and its 49 degrees here in Frederic. The u.p. was still going full force this past weekend with motels being full and groomers out and about.

A guy from Bowling Green Ohio left his truck and trailer out back here and then headed up to Paradise with his friend from Freemont, Mich. They had good riding up there and said they saw several groomers but also said it was getting pretty dry getting into Grand Marais. So the end is getting closer even up there.

I even managed to get my truck buried only about a mile from the shop here on a trail road where my plow frame bottomed out on it and we had to walk back here. I left the truck overnight and came back on sunday to get it out. It was a nice walk down trail 7 but don’t let the snow in the pics fool you as there are a lot of dry grass fields and parts of the trail out there too.

The pics below are the guys that came back from the u.p. as they switched sleds around in their trailers out back of the shop here. That’s about it for now. Thanks for checking in. Pete — http://frederic-mi.com/spring-spring-beautiful-spring/

Sledheads of Frederic , Michigan Snowmobiling

This is what we would all love to see. This video shared by my friend Doug Stephan who lives in Alaska. I have actually gone riding in the Thompson Pass just outside of Valdez where this video was taken. They don't use snow plows there,, as you can see they need loaders. That was the most incredible riding I have ever done up there in the pass with Jeff Saxe who owns the Eagles Nest campground in Valdez. I just wish I could get back out there to ride again there. I still have pictures on the counter in Sledheads of our ride there. Ask me to see them when you come in.

Over five days, Thompson Pass, Alaska received 76 inches of snow. This heavy snow load caused an avalanche that closed the Richardson Highway, the only road into Valdez, Alaska. This video shows ADOT&PF crews working to open the highway back up.
