IRONWOOD / WESTERN U.P. UPDATE via Gogebic Range Trail Authority – ORV & Snowmobile Club​ – 01/07

Three crews out today. We decided to send a groomer to groom Wakefield to our turn around with Gogebic Area Grooming
on trail 8. We suggest trailering to Wakefield and unloading. Trustees Charlie and Joe our trail 160 bosses signed fields and pipelines closed. Steve with the pictures signed the reroute on trail 11S. Trails rated fair to poor, we have not groomed Ironwood, 160, 11S or trail 2. We will see what snow looks like tonight. 11S rated good GO SLOW THROUGH PLOWED LOGGING AREA. We hung ribbon at blind corners, yield to our logging crews!

Early season riding exists with low snow hazards on trails. They are very icy. Ride safe and support great sponsors like Pioneer Lodging!!

IRONWOOD / WESTERN U.P. UPDATE via Gogebic Range Trail Authority - ORV & Snowmobile Club - The ski hills were groomed over night in sub zero temps by our groomer operator Ryan Christian. This is always our trail that gets beat the most and for the first time since Christmas we are rating it in FAIR condition. There are thin and icy corners yet, but overall it's improved dramatically with the fresh snow. Color is not white yet for all of the trail and if that's a deal breaker for your riding, feel free to stay home and ride there 🧐. Our entire system will be groomed over the last 24 hours with 11S getting hit today. We saw our buddies North Country Snowmobile Club UP
groomed their entire 109 mile system last night as well! We're confident Gogebic Area Grooming
got out and cut bumps as well! If you're not riding the Western up, you have yet to snowmobile the up, the BEST is WEST! ... #ironwood #westernup #snowphotos #trailreports
