Paradise Area Trail Report – 02/11

February 11, 2020

23 degrees this morning and cloudy. There is a very light snow floating around in the air too. We did pick up about an inch Sunday night and they are saying we might pick up a little here an there the next few days.

All of our trails are in good shape, with the exception of the swamp south of town which I rate at just fair. You can get thru there easily but just be careful, no open water but a few pot holes here an there.

More good news. The mechanic is here working on our broke down groomer. He`s figuring on gettin it runnin by the end of today. We`ll button it up tomorrow morning and take her for a test run……YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If everything goes well we`ll take her for a full run Wednesday night or Thursday……YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This coming weekend is a holiday weekend, so come on UP!!!!!! We`ll be runnin full speed for the first time this season and we`ll be ready for ya`s!!!!!!!!! Trails are good. If only we could get 6 inches of snow I could upgrade them to great or possibly excellent!!!!!!!!!!

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

29 degrees this morning and snowing pretty hard out der! Hard to say how much snow we got last night cause of the wind, but I have a drift thats knee high on my deck and in my parking lot!

Needless to say this is gonna help our trails a lot! Not like they are bad now, they are all at good to very good, but we did need more snow. I`m not gonna use the "word" yet but I`m fixin too. Just gotta hear from the groomer drivers after today......soooo.....get ready......just want to be totally honest.

Thanks for your feed back on our FB page. You were all very kind. I was expecting some negative stuff cause I knew the trails got really beat up over the weekend with all the traffic. This shows me you all do understand how it works. We can`t be on every trail constantly and try and keep them smooth all the time. It amazes me how fast they can get tore up with the amount of traffic we had on them.

K. Thats it fer today. Stay tuned. I expect the "word" to come out soon!!!

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

Great trails over the weekend thanks for all u do!!!! Do u guys tend to groom more at night or just whenever someone can run the groomer. Just curious as to how u guys like to do it.

Questioning why we left this morning... there was a good 5” fresh at the Mag! Trails were great all weekend!! Appreciate all your hard work!

Morning Chris. Snowing down here in Wellston too.πŸ™‚

Yoopers can’t say “fixin too”. I had to stop my friend from Louisiana from saying “you guyz”. Thanks for you work on the trails.

Trails were great my son and I were up all weekend seen groomers out all weekend. Keep up the good work

Can't wait be there Sunday

Keep up the hard work guys!!

14 degrees this morning and partly cloudy. We have picked up anywhere from 3-6 inches of snow since my last report. We are under a winter weather advisory for tonight and they are saying 4-7 inches or more in the next couple of days.....YEA!!!!!! That outa boost the trails to excellent!!!! Right now they are all at good to very good, with the exception of the swamp south of town which is very icey. I`m gonna rate that at fair-good.

Last weekend was REALLY busy for our little town. The sled traffic on the trails was insane. I haven`t seen that much in a long time. I thought we kept the trails pretty darn good for all the traffic that was on them. I`ve seen a few comments, I`d like to hear more, good or bad. Let us know how we did on our FB page if you were UP here riding this past weekend.

If the forecast holds true the trails are gonna get even better. I can`t wait to report "excellent" for the first time this season!!!!! Stay tuned.

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

We were through town both Thursday & Friday and the trails were great, the swamp was even decent besides icy. You guys are doing a great job with the snow you’ve had. Just want to add stay right when riding way to many sleds on the trails to be riding out of control

Thanks for the good trails this weekend. We saddlebagged over from Munising on Friday and rode back yesterday. Hd great trails all weekend except 45 from Paradise to The Falls was whooped out bad yesterday morning. Otherwise we saw very few folks on the trail all weekend. We are pleasantly surprised. Your neck of the woods sure has some dumb riders that park two wide on the trails. Munising doesn’t have those folks as bad. πŸ™‚

Reports are spot on like normal. We were through Saturday morning and the swamp was getting icy in the corners. Thanks for the hard work you all do!

We were there Thursday to Sunday. Yesterday we rode 452 to the point. Trails were excellent. Last night rode to the falls. Going out was pretty rough heading back to paradise and met the groomer. We were never so glad to see the man and machine. You guys did an excellent job this weekend. On the whole we had a great weekend the trails were really good. THANK YOU for keeping after the trails. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

We were there from Thursday through today , no complaints great job keeping up there was a ton of sleds!

Every single guest we spoke to at the hotel were extremely happy with every trail and wanted to pass on the gratitude!! Nice job guys!! Thanks so much for providing great trails for all of the people coming to Paradise!!

We had fanatic trails all weekend. Thanks for all of you and your guys hard work, and long hours.

We rode your area on Friday trails were in great shape. Will be back UP there this weekend

We were up there this past weekend and you guys did a great job. Special thanks to groomer Mike as I talked with him on that incident with a little girl in the burnt forest. We came upon that incident and helped out for a while. Very impressed with you guys and special thanks again to groomer Mike

Trails were fantastic. Thanks to all for your hard work

Yes trails were nice thanks for all the work trying to keep them rideable

Trails were great , thank you! You guys did awsome

Rode all weekend and the trails were fantastic. No complaints from me.

Thanks Chris, my wife, 13 year old son and I came up this past weekend. We had a great time. It was cool seeing 3 different groomers on the same day. Keep up the good work.

Good job. The trails were in superb shape.

You guys did a lot better than TASA.

Keep up the good work guys!
