Paradise Area Trail Report – 12/15

December 15, 2019

20 degrees this morning and snowing. Looks like we picked up about 3 inches of fluffy lake effect last night. Here`s what went on yesterday…..

Groomer Kevin and Chic Drisdrowski ( I think I spelled that right ) from Chics hot dog stand out on trails #452 and #8 took off in a groomer at 10 am to hit the Point trails. I talked to Kevin briefly this morning on how it went. He told me the Point trails are a total mess…..tons of trees blown down and a fair share of water. He said they busted their butts until dark and then headed back to the barn. He is back out there again today, more on that in a minute.

Groomers Mike, Gerald, myself and a NEW GUY Zack Ferguson ( WELCOME!!!!! ) plus a guy who drove all the way from Mt. Pleasant to help us who`s name is Mike Hoffman all took off towards Pine Stump on Trail #8 at 10am also. We took the remaining 2 groomers and Mike H. rode his sled with a tobagan in tow and took off in front of us. Talk about a mess!!!! We have never seen it this bad as far as trees down!!!!! Long story short, we made it as far as Little Lake off of CR 500 and turned around after a HARD 8 hrs of work, and we had 6 more to go to get back to the barn!!! The rest of the trail to Pine Stump shouldn`t be too bad as far as trees down cause there ain`t to many left after the fire a few years back.

Now, back to Groomer Kevin. He is back out on the Point trails today with Groomer Scott and ANOTHER NEW GUY Dale Grahm ( WELCOME to you too!!! ). They took 2 machines and are gonna try and tackle the rest of the Point. I will hear from him tomorrow to see how that went.

All fer today…..just trying to keep y`all updated.

LET `ER SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Groomer Chris

It really is Paradise 🥰

I have woken up to that and will do it again one day. We love that place.

Coming there in September for our honeymoon. Can't wait!

Such a beautiful and much loved view. Will get there at some point this year. How has renovating for virus regulations gone?

Wow, that is heaven...I mean, PARADISE🥰🥰🥰
