Michigan Trail Report


Paradise Area Trail Report – 02/13

February 13, 2020

Minus 3 degrees this morning with a pretty stiff wind outa the NE which gives us minus 30 on our wind chill gauge….brrrrrr. No new snow with this cold last night but we did pick up 2-3 inches on Tuesday.

I`m gonna start the trail report with the best news we can have, other than maybe a foot of snow. Our 3rd machine is back up and running!!!!!!! We took her for a 2 hr. test run last night and it ran great. Groomer Kevin is gonna take her out today on the Point trails….YEA!!!!!!!! A HUGE thank you to mechanic Dustin from Grand Equipment outa GR, GREAT JOB!!!!!! Now, the rest of the story……..

I ran the South trail #8 yesterday and will rate it as good. The swamp south of town is just fair. If only we could get some snow it would go up a notch.

Groomer Zach ran the Falls trail #45 last night and it is rated as good.

Groomer Kevin is out on the Point trails right now and we will run the Stump and the Falls again today.

All trails are good and FLAT, so come on UP for the holiday weekend!!! Like I said, if only we could get a little more snow things would be perfect.

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

Groomer Chris

It’s BEAUTIFUL U.P. here!! The whole weekend is going to be great and believe me, you don’t want to miss out! Conditions are better then we’ve had all winter. The sun is shining and the trails, snowmobile AND snowshoe/cross country ski are excellent!

8 degrees this morning with a real fine snow in the air. We have picked up over a foot of snow in the last couple of days....YEA!!!!!!!!!!!! Here`s a full run down of our trail system for this weekend.......

Groomer Dave M. ran the south trail #8 yesterday and rated it at very good. The swamp south of town is even rated at good now. He is runnin the trail again today and figures it will go up to EXCELLENT!!

Groomer Zach ran the Falls trail #45 last night and rated that at EXCELLENT!!

Groomer Kevin ran the Point trails #452 and #453 and rated them at very good. He said one more run on them and they will go to EXCELLENT!!

The Pine Stump trail #8 didn`t get run yesterday but will get run today. It too is rated at very good with heavy drifting in "siberia". I`m sure after today it will go up to EXCELLENT!!

Soooo....as you can see....I can FINALLY use my favorite word for the trails. We are a very picky bunch so it takes a lot to call them EXCELLENT. The forecasters are saying its supposed to warm up into the 30`s this weekend during the day but dip into the 20`s at night. With the lows in the 20`s I`m thinking it won`t hurt the trails any. It`s gonna be a PERFECT weekend to come UP and ride!!!!!!

COME ON UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Im here in Paradise now. Trails are excellent. Its very cold Thursday and Friday. Bundle up.lol

People have reported 7’ drifts in Siberia and also some stucks. They also reported a 10’ drift blocking access to the lighthouse on the ungroomed access trail.

Thanks sounds fantastic … hopefully it holds up heading up first week in March!
