Keweenaw Peninsula Trail Report – 03/20

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports​ – 3/20

From snowy, whiteout like conditions to start the day all the way to beautiful bluebird skies for the second half of the day – it couldn’t have been a more perfect day to be riding Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula!

Trails were absolutely perfect!

<>

Snow,snow and more snow! It’s a great day to be socially distancing yourself behind the bars of your sled.

Trail Boss, Buzzy gave this update this morning “Keweenaw got some new snow for the last sledders out there. Three groomers on the trails between high rock and toivola Should be good sledding. On a lighter note, groomer no. 2 operator had an early morning eye opening experience upon putting his lunch in the passenger side seat. He had a passenger waiting for him in the form of a raccoon!! Seems like his guest climbed thru the open drivers window to help himself to some potato chips. That will wake you up! If your going for a sled ride, follow the new rules of social distancing and Holler loud so your friends can hear you.”

Enjoy it while you still can!

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's....Superman! 🦸

According to Super Eats, "Superman" ice cream is a Michigan thing. Have you tried this famous Michigan ice cream?

There are quite a few variations to Michigan's beloved "Superman" ice cream. Portage Paddle Sports carries Jilbert's "Super Rainbow". Flavors? Blue Moon, Red Pop, and Vanilla.....and if you haven't had it you are missing out because it's....super.🦸

Other ice cream companies use black cherry in place of red pop or lemon for yellow.

You can find "Super Rainbow" ice cream at Portage Paddle Sports two locations: Houghton Waterfront Chutes & Ladders & Hancock Beach

It’s definitely a Michigan thing. I’ve lived in Iowa for 18 years and no one I have met from Iowa or other states (with the exception of Wisconsin) has ever had Superman or Blue moon ice cream (or Mackinac Island Fudge). Some of my childhood favorites ❤️

Tried Superman ice cream for the first time in decades last summer and rediscovered why I loved it back then. I get it at least every other time we get ice cream now.

Here in Utah, I get my old Michigan Superman fix with Farr’s Play Dough ice cream.

I missed Superman so bad when I lived in Texas that I attempted to mix my own 😂

Grew up in the area but never remember this ice cream.

Fact: Jilbert’s Ice Cream is the best ever.

It is in Ohio too!

If I have to look at one more picture of anyone in a mask, I'm going to have to unfollow this page. I want to see people's FACES! And for those of you who are fine with it, so be it.

Ok...I'm still stuck trying to describe Superman's flavor profile. Any help?

It's called Rainbow in Iowa... and it's not the same as SUPERMAN from Michigan

I grew up on Blue Moon and of course Mackinac Fudge ice creams. Ate a lot of both when I was in Michigan last.

David! Oh, how I remember!

Not a huge ice cream person but my favorites are Superman, Blue Moon and Pistachio!

Jilbert’s and Superman Ice Cream 😍

It’s scooperman down here in Milwaukee Wisconsin ....

I had some at McLains lol

Those waters are therapeutic!!!

Refreshing! 😁👍

The temp of the water has actually been reading in the 60's! Unseasonably warm for the 4th weekend.
