Paradise Area Trail Report – 01/13

January 13, 2018

5 degrees this morning and snowing pretty good out der. Looks like we picked up about 3 inches in the last 24 hrs. Got some better than expected reports from the groomers who ran yesterday after the warm up so here we go……..

Groomer Mike ran the Pine Stump trail #8 and told me he rated it at good to excellent with, of course, drifting in Siberia. Groomer Don rated the Point Trails #452 and #453 as excellent. Thats the only 2 trails that were run. Been on the phone all morning with guys to come up with a plan for today. Thats why this report is a little late…..so here we go for today…..

Groomer Mike is gonna head into the swamp with just a machine. Groomer Jack is gonna handle the rest of the trail south with a machine and a drag. Trying to get the timing right so if Mike can get the swamp filled in good enough Jack will take a drag through it on his way back and we can open `er up!!!!!!! YEA!!!!!! I`m heading to the Falls this afternoon when Groomer Don gets back from the Point. Lets hope this plan works and the swamp cooperates then we can get all our trails open!!! I`ll be sure to let ya`ll know how it went on tomorrow mornings report so stay tuned.

Groomer Chris

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?
