Gogebic Area Grooming

12-10-18, Gogebic Area Grooming went on trail 8 from Bergland to Ewen. First time using the drag for the season and it turned out nice. MI-TRALE and Gogebic Area Grooming split the cost to hire Sno Valley Riders Snowmobile Club to Brush the trail. Here is a few pictures on how it turned out! ... See MoreSee Less

Gogebic Area Grooming

12-09-18, Gogebic Area Grooming went to trail 8 near the county line. After seeing what opened up with the amount of traffic that went through it, we had to try and do something! We ended up having to make snow bridges due to the wet lands. We asked that if you possibly can avoid trail 8 for a while so we can get the wet areas frozen. We were fortunate to make it through with a groomer. This will make it freeze faster so our groomers can actually groom with the dray. We will be out tomorrow working on the wet areas again to hopefully freeze it up. We also finished up on trail 102, to South Boundary Road (trail 11). *** please use caution when riding the trails***. This is just not our trails but all area trails. We need to get more snow for perfect riding conditions.

Also this weekend our area got a lot of snowmobilers. We ask that you respect our area, as local people are complaining to us about the trespassing on their properties. We know that riding powder is fun, but when you cross onto peoples private property. They then want to close down our trails because of it. This creates a lot of headaches for our club to reroute trails and not mention the cost. Doing such is what makes our trail permits that much more expensive. Again we are working hard to get you the trail you want to ride. But causing issues to have a little fun will ruin it for everyone! We will keep you posted on our progress, but for now we are also waiting for more snow. Let’s all hope that the lake effect snow kicks in very soon......

I think people should loose there trail permit if they ride off trail in areas where they are not supposed to, then fined for it. They are ruining it and making it more expensive for everyone that follows the rules! And for you guys too!

I wish people waited for quality trails.

I think city people would come and ride frost

Your team of volunteers rock. Thank you

When is Michigan gonna wise up and outlaw altered exhaust systems and limit the depth of the paddles on these tracks. Been riding up there for thirty years and never seen so much disrespect for property and people that I have seen in the last few years. These deep tracks do nothing but dig bigger holes on groomed trails. But they don't care just gonna ruin it for the rest of us that enjoy the sport and scenery.

Exactly why I don’t ride that area. I never saw any water the entire weekend.

There is not much of a base yet,common sense I always wait for more snow,a lot of corners with lack of a base is dangerous hard to turn,just years of experience I don’t want to die riding I enjoy it.

The trails shouldn’t even be open right now there isn’t enough snow what does anyone expect? There is no excuse that the trail should be down to dirt already before a base is even formed. It doesn’t matter that December the first the trails CAN open keep them closed until you get some real snow. 🤦🏽‍♂️

Jeff Schliepp Jason Faught. Looks familiar from a few years ago

same problem as last year in the same area. correct?

Houstone Texanes check it

Jon Bishop

Wow, nice work guys. Going over the top again! Too bad it hasn't had more time to freeze up.

Happy to see they are actually trying to groom trail 8! Trail 8 is always the most beat up trail in the network no matter when we are there. It's our favorite route to take but it forces us away from bergland when there are 3' moguls the entire way.

Gogebic Area Grooming

12-7-18, our team at Gogebic Area Grooming was able to pack the following trails. Trail 13 North to our turn around at trail 101. Trail 1 from Bergland to White Pine. Trail 8 from Merriweather to Underwood Tower Road (Tula). Trail 1 from Marenisco to Presque Isle. Trail 1 from Marenisco to West Shore Resort. Almost all of the Hoop n Holler access trail. Walleye Lodge, Timberlines Sports, Bergland Snowmobile & Marine, and the town of Bergland access trails.

Again snow is on the trails but it’s still the beginning of season. Lots of rocks on trail 13 North going towards Rockland. We are trying our hardest to fill all the wet spots so your sled won’t go through. Use caution by the county line on trail 8, our groomers had to go around a wet spot about 600 feet long.

Tomorrow we plan on going back up trail 102 to pack the fresh snow we just got. Use caution when traveling this trail tomorrow 12-8-18, as our driver maybe out of the groomer cleaning some brush yet.

Here is some pictures what we took of the trail system as of today.

Good job Gentleman

Great job guys!

Nice work! Thank you for your time and efforts!

Can someone tell me what the scenic overlook is called that you drive up a super long trail that feels like a "4 lane freeway" so to speak.

What about trail 1 from west shore resort to trail 8?

Looks great guys !! Thank you

Is it me or is this the most prep that area has done in years ? Love to to see the new efforts to bring that area back

Great job grooming and reporting. Thank you!
