Paradise Area Trail Report – 01/12

Plenty of snow in Paradise…. (Photos via Magnuson Grand Hotel Lakefront Paradise)

January 12, 2018

7 degrees this morning and a pretty good wind right outa the north which puts the wind chill at about minus 12. There is a light snow flitten (is that a real word?) around in the air. We picked up just a heavy dusting last night. While on the subject of weather….we hit 38 yesterday and it rained some. Not too much but I hate that for the middle of January! Now…..on to the trails…..

As most of you know that follow me I am brutally honest about the trail conditions. We did not run anything yesterday so I can`t give you an honest report on how the trails held up during this short warm up. Groomers Mike and Larry are heading out this morning to hit the Pine Stump trail #8. Groomer Don is also runnin the Point Trails this morning. Not sure what else is going on (lack of help thing again). I`m busy today but plan to run the Falls trail tomorrow. We are also looking for somebody to run south either today or tomorrow.

So thats all I know for this morning. I`ll have a better report for ya`ll tomorrow. LET ER SNOW!!!!!!

Hey Friends!!



Today’s hours are Noon-Midnight, but you know us, if there’s a party going on, midnight will turn into 2 am real quick!!

Although it won’t be our normal, homemade goodies being served today, we do have some classic bar appetizers available!! I mean, can you really go wrong with mini corn dogs and soft pretzels?

Anyway, come on INN and let your inner Irish out!!

25 degrees this morning and a bright blue sky. Sorry about no report yesterday but it totally slipped my mind. I got busy first thing and before I knew it it was afternoon. Here`s whats been going on the last couple days.......

Groomer Larry ran the Falls trail #45 Thursday evening and called it fair.

Groomer Scott ran the Point trails #452 and #453 yesterday and called them good.

We are runnin the Falls trail again today and we are looking for someone to do the Pine Stump trail too.

I haven`t mentioned the South trail #8 lately. The gates are still open going into the swamp south of town but we can`t get a machine through. To the best of my knowledge you can still get through with a sled but no guarantees you`ll come out dry and not a little muddy.

The weather is gonna dictate how much more grooming is gonna go on. The weather guessers are calling for sunshine and warming up for all next week so its gonna be a touch and go system from here on out. Just keep checking back and I`ll try and keep you informed for any last minute ridin.

Thanks for all you guys do. But this winter just plain stunk snow wise.


Trails were great for late season riding.

Looking to go up and trailer out of Newberry, what do you think for Saturday?
