***These reports are from the TASA (Tahquamenon Area Snowmobile Association) Groomers and the Paradise Area Night Rider Groomers. Pulled from their Facebook or website pages for the most current information from those out grooming the trails.****

*******Attention snowmobiles riding in the village of Newberry. Please refer to the map and follow the trail. The Community Action Agency over the last month has had several close calls while snowmobiles are riding through our parking lot instead of the trail. We have senior citizens backing out of our building and small children walking to cars. The trail is not through our parking lot, it goes around it along the road. If your still not sure where I’m referring to, if your riding along our fenced in playground or you see our Head Start buses, you are not on the trail. We don’t want anyone getting hurt!*******

TASA UPDATE:

March 10, 2020 11:15am  Updates below GREEN FOR GO!

Update: We will go out late this afternoon and tonight to try and smooth things back down.  We picked up a couple of inches of snow last night north or 4 mile corner/County Rd 407.  The staging area in town is frozen snirt and the sides of the road out of town and in town are bare.  Still pretty rough.  The snow depth in the woods is good.  Overall deeper in the system the trails are pretty good, but they are late season conditions.  What we have heard from some sledders are the trails are hard and flat.  Now remember we have not been out since the weekend so this is a small sample of a few dozen sleds and everyone's opinion varies.  This is not to say you will not find some rough or choppy spots, but for the most part they are hard and flat.  To the best of our current knowledge is the only small water spot is on Trail 45 North a few miles out of town.  We will be able to better access the situation later today and tonight and will update you accordingly in the morning.   We Take Pride in Your Ride!

There is a staging area north of town at Silver Creek 3 miles north if you want to avoid the side of the road out of town. Go north after crossing the tracks and take a left at the Silver Creek ORV sign and go to the dead end and start out from there on Trail 9.  Plenty of room there!

Current Hours: Northstore Hours on Cnty Rd 407 is open  Sunday to Wednesday from 9am to 9pm and Thursday to Sat. 9am to 11pm.  Gas, Snacks and general information.  Sled Rentals Available!

The Wolf Inn is open 7 days a week 11am-10pm.  Food.  Will be closing for the winter season March 29th.

The Pine Stump is open 7 days a week now Mon.-Sun. 11am to 10pm for the kitchen.

Tahquamenon Falls Brewery & Pub is open.

Trail #9/2/473 (Fair to Good) (South of Newberry) We will groom tonight.   This is about 3 miles South once you cross M-28. The caution and stop ahead signs are still posted surrounding the affected area.  There is a good chance it will freeze back up over the next couple of days since the forecast has changed once again.

Trail #45 (Fair to Good) There is one area of interest.  It is from Skyline Road for 3 miles that is plowed due to logging.  Please use caution when going through this area.  It is starting to get a little rough through there with the warm up and a small water spot 3 miles just north of town.  We will  groom tonight.

Trail #9 (Fair to Good) One of the most traveled trails.   We will groom tonight. 

Trial #498 off of Trail 9 (Fair to Good) NE over to the Northstore for gas.  We will groom tonight.

March 9, 2020 10:00am  Updates below BLUE

Update: We did not groom last night.  The temperatures are too warm.  We will NOT groom again until the temperatures are below 35.  Our next best shot is tomorrow night and then again on Friday.  It looks like we might dodge the rain tonight and it could be a mix of freezing rain or not more than 1/2 of light snow.  The staging area in town is mud and the sides of the road out of town and in town are bare.  What is left on the side of the road are ice moguls.  The snow depth in the woods is still good.  Overall deeper in the system the trails are still pretty good, but they are late season conditions.  March 31st is not far off when the trails will close that cross private property and the gates will close unless additional permissions from the land owner is granted.  County roads and state lands and portions of the trail would still be accessible as long as the snow holds out.  We Take Pride in Your Ride! 

  • We will see how the next three days play out.  We will keep you posted on our ability to groom going forward as early as we can in the morning or update our status late at night.  There is still a lot of snow deep in the woods, however some areas are just more worn done than others, just depends on where the sun is hitting.

March 8, 2020 2:00pm  Updates below RED

Update: We did groom all the trails last night.  They are good at night when the temperatures drop back below freezing.  The best riding is late night or early morning right now.  The staging area in town is mud and it is pretty slushy heading up to the trail head.  The sides of the road are bare, along with the roads and alley ways in town.  You can avoid all that by using the Silver Creek Staging area.  It is 46 degrees out right now.  The overnight low is only supposed to hit 36 degrees.  We may attempt to go out after dark, but we will see how it goes and how far we get.  There is a chance we do not go out at all.  Overall deeper in the system the trails are still pretty good and there is snow we can pull in if the temperatures will work with us.  March 31st is not far off when the trails will close that cross private property and the gates will close unless additional permissions from the land owner is granted.  County roads and state lands and portions of the trail would still be accessible as long as the snow holds out.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

March 4, 2020 8:00am  Updates below GREEN

Update: If you are a baseball fan and pitching then you are a fan of the weather recently.  Just when you think you are going to get a fastball you end up with a curve ball.  This is what the weather has delivered this week.  Tomorrow looks to bring 3-5" of wet heavy snow unlike the light fluffy 8" of snow we got last week.  We groomed both North trails last night and they are in good condition.  Are there spots that may be a little bumpy here and there, most certainly.  However overall the trails are in good condition.  Grooming is an art and more than just riding along.  You have to know when to pan here, cut there and pull snow in from the banks in other spots.  We are thankful for the veteran groomers and the next up and coming generation that continues to learn the tricks of the trade to hone their skills in the groomers seat.  The roads and alley ways in town are bare, but if we get the snow predicted and it appears we will that will rectify that situation.  The details for the trails are below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

Feb. 18, 2020 1:30pm  Updates below BROWN

Update: Trails are great!  We picked up about 6 inches of snow last night and more on the way for tonight and tomorrow.  Depending on the forecaster it could be as little as an inch or as much as another 7".  We did groom all the trails last night and will grooming all week.  The fresh snow has been long awaited and will pack great as it is just damp enough to drag and pack well.  The winds are pretty gusty and visibility is low at times so please use caution as periodic white outs will occur.  Beware of the groomers on the trails.  They are much easier to spot once darkness has set in, but during the day blind corners and hills are not as forgiving and the blowing snow will certainly not help.  There is a lot of traffic out there even today.  The details for the trails are below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

All the clubs are grooming and putting their best foot forward.  Please BEWARE of the groomers on the trails.  We Take Pride in Your Ride, but we take just as much concern with your safety.  Everyone is here for a fun time, but returning home to your families safely is just as important to us!

Trail #9/2/473 (Great) (South of Newberry) The water that was running just south of M-28 has frozen.  Caution is still urged.  Stop ahead signs were placed at the area of caution.  Groomed all the way to Epoufette/Cut River and over to Trout Lake.

Trail #9 (Great)  We are grooming nightly.  Coming out of town up the side of the road to the trail head is rolling and just about gone, but the snow tonight will help.  Alternative solution noted above in the update.  Groomed all the way to Holland Lake Staging last night will do so the coming week.  The last mile coming into the back side of the Pine Stump gets beat up pretty bad and we do our best to keep this smoothed out, but the amount of traffic does take its toll.  The trail is narrow so caution as always is prudent.  The fresh snow and snow to come will certainly help our cause.

Update: All the trails were groomed again last night.  There has been light traffic this week and we have groomed every night churning and packing the snow.  The trails have setup real nice.  We have cut out moguls and leveled out the high banked corners to make them wider since Sunday.  There is snow in the forecast through the weekend.  A little here and a little there and potentially even more come Monday.  It will help all the trails.  It is going to be a busy weekend.  We normally take Wednesday nights off and catch up on maintenance and sleep, but we will get our New Holland back today and will send it out tonight for a test run to make sure it runs accordingly after the repairs.  Fingers crossed!! The details for the trails are below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

On a side note there will be Youth Basketball Saturday and Sunday at the school and community building.   There will be a lot of cars and kids crossing the roads so please use caution driving through town.  In addition to all that, the Cornhole Tournament at the American Legion will be going on.

Update: All the trails were groomed last night.  There is a 2 foot base on the trails.  The snow changes a lot depending on the area.  We saw sugary snow starting out in spots and more damp and soft snow in others.  The trails dragged and pan out nice.  On all the trails last night we cut out moguls and cleaned up some of the high banked corners to make them wider.  We will continue to work the corners and any additional moguls before the highly anticipated high traffic weekend coming up.  The alley ways in town are icy and the side of the road out of town is the same and bumpy.  We wish we could smooth this out for you but we are not able to do so because of the state highway guidelines.  The details for the trails are below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

We posted some pictures on TASA Facebook Page of some of the work last night on Trail 9 North and Trail 498 over to the Wolf Inn.

Update: Here is the hard truth as much as we hate to say it! We groomed all the trails last night but it is fair at best.  It is hard and sugary right now.  The reality is we need snow.  They are not holding up long after grooming.  The warmer temperatures are gone and it has been cold this week, however we need good snow to cover up the damage that has already been done.The details for the trails are below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

Feb. 3, 2020 10:00am  Updates below PURPLE

Update: We groomed all the trails last night.  The lead trail out of town up to 3 mile was done twice.  Cut in and smoothed out.  It will be above freezing today so it will get roughed up, but we will tackle it again late this afternoon and tonight.  Overall though they could be a lot worse with the temperatures being as warm as they have been over the past couple of days.  It will dip back down into the twenties tonight and tomorrow so after we groom tonight things should stabilize.  The information we have received from other clubs is it is not that bad and the trails overall are in pretty good condition considering we have not have much additional snowfall.  Certainly there are areas worse than others, but overall pretty good.  Traveling out of town is one of the most heavily traveled portions and gets beat up pretty good along side of the road up to the trail head of 45 & 9.   If you want to avoid that portion the Silver Creek Staging area is an option.  If trail 45 N is your goal and short zip 3 miles south of the staging area you can be back at the Trail Head of 45 and miss the roughness coming out of town and the side of the road.  We wish we could smooth that out, however State Highway mandates does not allow us to do so.  We will continue to put our best foot forward to keep things smooth out to the best of our ability.  The details for the trails are detailed below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!

Update: We groomed all the trails last night.  Yesterday saw quite a bit of traffic out on the trails for mid week.  Today and tomorrow looks pretty good as far as temperatures go, but Sunday and Monday it will peak in the mid thirties.  This will certainly soften things up.   Overall currently things are holding up.   There are a few factors involved involved to keep it prime on a regular basis and warmer temperatures is certainly not one of them.  All the grooming clubs across the U.P are doing their dead level best to keep the trails as good as possible.  Traveling out of town gets beat up pretty good along side of the road up to the trail head of 45 & 9.  If you want to avoid that portion the Silver Creek Staging area is an option.  If trail 45 N is your goal and short zip 3 miles south of the staging area you can be back at the Trail Head of 45 and miss the roughness coming out of town and the side of the road.  We wish we could smooth that out, however State Highway mandates does not allow us to do so.  We will be grooming daily/nightly the rest of the week.  We will continue to put our best foot forward to keep things smooth out to the best of our ability.  The details for the trails are detailed below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!!

Update: We took last night off, but we will be back out today grooming all the trails.  The temperatures and traffic has really dictated the condition of the trails.  We are doing our best to keep them smooth and packed.  When it warms up just over the freezing mark they do get soft and what has been smoothed out does get rough at times.  The trails are good to fair it just depends on the temperatures, traffic and where you are at as you well know.  The fact of the matter is if you are expecting pristine trails at all times it just is not going to happen right now.  Seasoned riders understand all the elements involved to keep it prime on a regular basis.  All the grooming clubs across the U.P are doing their dead level best to keep the trails as good as possible.  We will be grooming daily/nightly the rest of the week.  The temperatures will be moderate for the next two days and Saturday and Sunday will be slightly warmer.  The night time lows will continue to dip into the twenties.  We will continue to put our best foot forward to keep things smooth out to the best of our ability.  The details for the trails are detailed below.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!!

This Just in:  Unfortunately we were not able to get to the E part of Trail 45 last night to the Falls.  Well over 3/4 of it is good.  The theory is that the other 1/4 is passable, however it is just a theory at this point.  There are sled tracks at both ends.  The trail boss hopes to go through tonight and it will be ready to go by the weekend.  If it is soft,  it will take a little work to pull some snow in and pack it down really good.  This is not the news we or you were hoping for this morning, but we are urging on the side of caution as it is quite the process to get a groomer from being stuck.  Hang in there and hopefully tomorrow the lights will be flashing and the all go sign will be illuminated.  We asked that if you see any soft spots or if you personally get through that area before we do please let us know.   All reports of areas of interest that could need some attention please let us know and we can focus on them while we are out.  Stay tuned for the up to date details and hopefully we can paint you a clear picture tomorrow morning.  We Take Pride in Your Ride!!  Your patience is appreciated!!

Cold temperatures prevail tonight through tomorrow, but it warm back up late week and the weekend pushing the mid thirties.  This will bring on a melt of sorts and the trails will probably get a little soft, but they are in great condition currently.  Come up and enjoy some time in the outdoors and the best scenery around.  What a great time to slow down and relax!  A friendly reminder is slow down and stay to the right especially on the corners.  Stay on the trail.  Private property owners gives us the privilege to have trails across their property and we do not want to lose it.  Normal grooming operations are in full swing.  Groomers are heading out again today to hit all the trails and they are finishing working East of the 500 to the Falls.  There is every good chance it will be ready to be open as early as tomorrow night or at the latest the weekend.

It is hard to believe that the time is here already for snowmobiling!  There are many of you that have long awaited this moment.  We have had  two significant snowfalls over the past week and a half.  There is over 2-3 feet of snow in some areas.  In saying the previous there are a lot of down trees and hidden dangers.  The groomers and volunteer's are out trying to clean up the trails for you enjoyment.  This is going to be a slow process in all areas of the U.P, but they are working daily to clean it up.  However, just because a portion of a trail has been cleaned does not mean that a brittle tree has broken off and blocked the trail once again.  There are portions of the trails that are open and all the county roads are snow packed to take a cruise on.  We DO NOT encourage or Condone any high rates of speed.  The dangers are real as you well know.  The trails officially open Dec. 15th or sooner once hunting season is over or the land owners give permission to TASA to open the gates that cross over their property.  We will post that information once it is available.

TASA works mostly with volunteers.  We have the best groomers in the U.P.  They dedicate long hours and nights away from their families to groom the trails so you can enjoy them safely.  Please be cautious as you approach a groomer as there is not much room for them and you so please slow down and once there is room then go around them.  It is always appreciated when you can tip your hat to them and thank them for their efforts or give them a wave.  Be Safe out there and take time to enjoy nature and the best scenery the U.P has to offer.

PARADISE AREA NIGHT RIDERS REPORT::

December 12, 2018

30 degrees this morning, cloudy and quite windy.

I know I haven`t been on here much but there just isn`t much to report. The weather hasn`t cooperated much and nothing exciting happening. We do have a few inches on the ground and I have seen a dozen or so sleds running around town. Our trails are ridable (barely) but we haven`t been able to get the groomers out yet....just not enough snow and cold!! We are ready to rock an roll as soon as good ole Mother Nature will let us. It doesn`t look promising for the rest of this week though.

Keep checking back. As soon as Ole Man Winter decides to wake up and bless us I will be sure to let you know.

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

November 30, 2018

30 degrees this morning and cloudy. The BIG day is tomorrow and I was hoping to give you better news but it is what it is....darn Mother Nature!!

We sure got off to a good start in the middle of Nov. but it kinda petered out. We had a solid foot on the ground a week ago but the weather warmed up a touch and most of it melted away.....bummer. We have only an inch or so on the ground now. I see more grass sticking up in my yard than snow banks. The good news is that the ground is starting to freeze which will help when it starts to cool off again and snow. The weather guessers are calling for it to cool off and start snowing next week....we`ll see what happens.

Just thought I would jump on here for a sec and give you a quick update. Stay patient....it`ll come soon!!!!!  Keep checking back.

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

From Kritter's Northcountry Campground Trail Report

The trails are in good condition.  The trail coming out of town is bumpy, otherwise the reports from our guest is that they are in good condition going north and west over to Grand Maris. We have received snow everyday since the new year.  It has been a few inches everyday.  The gate to the falls is still closed as the swamp is not quite frozen enough to get the groomer across.  Hopefully it will be early next week.  There is still plenty of riding.   The temperatures are going to remain cold this through the weekend.  It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  You can go for miles and miles in any direction to explore the U.P.  Slow down and take in the beauty of nature.  As always we encouarge Safety first and courteous riding for other people while out on the trails!  

If you would like to get ahead of the game and have a secure reservation please give us a call.  We completely understand everything is contingent on weather and trail conditions, but you can have a peace of mind you are not scrambling at the last minute to find a place to stay. 

Trail #9  Snow depth north of Newberry is DEEP.   The trail is in good condition.

Trail #45  The trail is groomed  to CR 500.  The gate at the CR 500 is still closed and will remain closed until they can get through the swamp.  

Trail #9/2  This trail snow depth is about a foot or better.  The trail is being groomed to Rexton.

Trail #8  The trail going north to the Pine Stump off of CR407 and from the Pine Stump to Paradise is in good shape.  Part of trial 8 from Paradise to Raco going south to the mouth of the Tahquameon River is still closed and will open as soon as it freezes which should be any day due to how cold it has been.  They were able to get to the Falls, however the gate is still closed, but they pulled snow  into the water holes and this should freeze over this week to open the gate.

Trails 452 & 453  Fair condition and  still a few water holes on the north side of the trails.

Due to the warm weather and traffic this weekend the trails in Newberry, the staging area by the railroad tracks and trail #9 grade is dirt with a small amount of snow cover. There is another staging area located north of Newberry. Take M-123 for 3 miles after you cross the railroad tracks to CR 446, turn left and follow this county road to the end take a left to the parking lot.

The cold temperatures  have return for this weekend. It is snowing today (lake affect) and getting colder but our all of our trails lost a lot of snow over the past 2 days. Please remember as the temperatures drop the water on the trails are now freezing so our trails are going to be icy. Please slow down as our trails are in spring riding conditions.

We will be grooming our north trails this weekend.

 Trail #9   Trail is in fair condition and the trail past Pine Stump  to Holland Staging area is down to dirt along CR 407.

21 degrees this morning, cloudy and breezy. It was snowing pretty hard yesterday morning, and blowing pretty hard too. We picked up about 3 inches in a couple of hours then it petered out pretty fast. It blowed so hard I didn`t even have to shovel off my deck. "They" are still saying highs in the teens and lows in the single digits thru the weekend and snow here an there. Not saying alot of snow, 3-6 inches, but we`ll take what we can get!!! Now on to the trails......

I covered Pine Stump in yesterdays report...still the same there. We probably won`t run that again till Friday or Saturday....depends on the traffic. We haven`t been out on the Falls trail since the rain the other day, we are gonna hit that today to see whats UP with that, so I`ll have more info tomorrow morning, but it should be fair to good. I`ve said it before, we are done with trail #8 south of town, its just too far gone and under water. Did talk to Groomer Mike after his late night run on the Point Trails last night to take care of downed trees. He called the trail in decent shape. At this point I want to make a point. All trails are HARD and ICEY. They are ridable but expect the dirt roads that are plowed to be frozen mud and the main roads to be bare. I am getting so many calls asking if its worth coming UP, MAN, it depends what you are looking for. I`ll say it again....they are ridable but HARD and ICEY.  Paradise Area Night Riders

The forecast is for warm weather until Wednesday and then the cold temperatures return for this weekend. Both of our north trails still have a lot snow and will be ready for the up coming weekend.

We will not be grooming today or tomorrow until the temperatures at night drop below freezing.

8 degrees this morning and snowing. Looks like we picked up a solid 3 inches on my deck last night. Supposed to get another couple today.

I ran the Falls trail #45 last night and it turned out good. All the water holes that opened up on us last week are now froze back in but a couple of new "pot holes" opened up. No big deal but just be careful. I would call this trail excellent except for dem pesky little pot holes. Groomer Mike ran the Pine Stump trail #8 and called that good. Groomer Don did the Point trails #452 and #453 and called them good too. All trails that were groomed are hard and FLAT. Like my last report, trail #8 south is toast...just too wet and low and we are done with it.

With this new snow we got last night, if you decided to come UP this weekend you are gonna have a blast!!!! It is supposed to warm up a bit starting Sunday for a couple days and maybe rain a bit but then cool back down and snow for next weekend.....we`ll see what happens. Just keep an eye on my reports. Nuff fer today. I think I`m goin ridin today!!!!! Groomer Chris   Paradise Area Night Riders

10 degrees this morning and partly cloudy. Yesterday was quite a windy day and we did get around 3 inches or so. Every time I look at the weather forecast it changes but "they" are still saying its gonna stay cold until Sunday and we may pick up a couple inches from now till then.

Groomer Don did decide to run the Point trails yesterday just to keep up on the drifting. I am runnin to the Falls tonight and Groomer Mike is gonna head to Pine Stump. I am seeing alot of questions asking about trail #8 going south on our FB page....here`s my answer. The swamp south of town is under water and the gates are closed. It may be froze now cause of the temps the last couple nights but if we take a groomer thru there it would break right back up. The power line south of the river has a couple big wet areas open with flowing water, we just can`t get a groomer thru there either. The Federal Forest section (between the Silver Creek and Lakeshore Dr.) is mud. You can get a sled thru all of this but it won`t be alot of fun and possibly no fun at all. Old Man Winter has not been good to us this season with the thawing he`s thrown at us so we just can`t do anything about this section of trail. Its too low and wet and we are done grooming it for the season. You can still get south if you ride on the UNPLOWED portion of M-123. As I have said in the past, we cannot groom this cause we don`t have a permit to do so, plain and simple. All our other trails are good to go so come on UP for maybe one last fling.

All I gots fer today. Groomer Chris  Paradise Area Night Riders

February 27, 2017

18 degrees this morning and sunny. Supposed to get to about freezing today then alittle warm for Tuesday then drop back down to "normal"....whatever that is. We picked up about 6-8 inches over the weekend....which really helped out the trails.

All trails were groomed all weekend except the south trail #8. This trail is under water in the swamp and not good south of the river. I got a pretty good feeling we are done with it for the season. The Point trails #452 and #453 are good and the Pine Stump trail #8 is still good. We had a couple of good size water holes open up on the Falls trail #45 this weekend but got `em filled in so I`ll call this trail 99% good. Just be carefull around the posted wet areas. Like I said before, we WILL keep grooming until the weather won`t allow so don`t believe any negative rumors you hear, check my reports, you`ll know the truth.

Thats what I got fer ya`s today. Keep checking back, I`ll keep ya`ll updated. Groomer Chris Paradise Area Night Riders

We opened up the gates to the south swamp trail #8 yesterday. It may be alittle rough in there as we haven`t taken a groomer in there yet. We are gonna let the sleds run in there a few days to freeze it down more cause we don`t want to take a chance of breaking it up with a 4 ton groomer. Just be careful in there!!

Groomer Gerald ran the Falls trail #45 last night and called it good. We were able to refreeze the water hole that we had a detour around so that trail is back to normal. Groomer Don ran the Point trails also yesterday. Groomer Dave is hittin the south trail #8 today and try to finish fixing the couple small water hole problems we have there.

Thats all I know fer today. Keep checking back. LET ER SNOW!!!!!

14 degrees this morning and snowing.....HARD!!! Picked up a solid 6 inches on my deck last night!!! The weather guessers have extended our lake effect advisory until Sat. now. They are saying up to at least a foot more when this is all said and done!!!! Hello February!!!

I did run the Falls trail yesterday and it turned out really good. We still have a small detour around a water hole that opened up so pay attention to a couple new stop signs with direction arrows for now. We should be able to get this fixed shortly with all this snow we are getting. Groomer Don is runnin the Point Trails as I write this. Not sure on the rest of the schedule but we`ll have the trails in tip top shape fer ya`s for the weekend. - Paradise Area Night Riders

We are grooming all 3 trails. We are expecting a few more inches of snow this week north of M-28. There is snow on the south trail but a lot less than the 2 trails to the north.  TASA Groomers

22 degrees this morning and snowing. Picked up a couple new inches on my deck last night too. We are under a lake effect advisory for tonight thru Friday night....YEA!!!! They are saying 6-10 inches....YEA again!!!

Groomer Loren was the only one who ran yesterday. He did the Pine Stump trail #8 and called it good. I am gonna hit the Falls trail #45 this afternoon. If we get all this snow they are calling for we will get into the swamp south of town and work on that probably Friday. We still have a small detour on #45 to the Falls to get around a water hole that opened up. We should be able to work on that soon also. We`ll also get out and work on the other few bad spots we have on our trail system ASAP.

In some other good news, our busted groomer, yes, its still down, should be back up an runnin by this weekend. We had to get another fuel injector pump. The new one we got 2 weeks ago turned out to be faulty. Our other new one is supposed to be in today or tomorrow. Wish us luck....this groomer has been down since Dec. 16 on its first run of the season!!!

Thats it fer today folks. Keep checking back. LET ER SNOW!!!!!!

23 degrees this morning and partly cloudy. No new snow last night. Last day of January.....good riddance....the local weather guesser said the temps for this month was 6-10 higher than normal. The wind is supposed to switch and come outa the NW tomorrow and the weather guessers are saying that will kick up some good lake effect for Wed. night and Thurs. They are saying 3-6 inches thru Thurs. night. Lets hope they are right!! Now, on to the trails.....

Groomer Don ran the Point trails yesterday and called them good. Groomer Dave did go south on trail #8 but by-passed the swamp. He told me the power line south of the river has a couple nasty holes in it. You can get around them though but be careful. There is also a big hole in the federal forest section. This is the section between the Silver Creek Tavern and Lakeshore drive. Its a tough one to get around cause the trail is so narrow in there. My point here is lets use some common sense when coming to a water hole. Don`t go busting through it not knowing how deep it is, then getting stuck in it and then complaining. We don`t carry a magic wand in the groomer to freeze in holes!!! We can`t do nuttin about it with this past warm weather and no snow to use to fill it!!! Common sense folks.....common sense.

Well, thats what I got fer ya`s today. Lets hope the weather guessers are right about the snow coming. The temps look like they are gonna cooperate so all we need is a foot of snow. LET ER SNOW!!!!!

11 degrees this morning and cloudy. We only got a light dusting of snow last night.....sure could use a foot!!!

Groomer Loren ran the Pine Stump trail #8 yesterday but I never heard from him so I can`t give you an honest report on how it went. I can assume it went good but that`s just my gut feeling cause this trail is high and dry.

I took just a groomer with no drag into the Falls trail #45 and set up a detour route around the nasty water hole that opened up. There are a couple of new stop signs with direction arrows on this trail temporarily until we can get this fixed. I worked this hole for a couple hours until I ran outa snow to use to plow into the holes.

I think Groomer Dave is gonna run south today but not positive on that one. He will by-pass the swamp. We just can`t do anything with this section until we get more snow. The cold temps will help though. The thing ya gotta remember is with the recent snow melt the water levels are high in there!!

Bout all I got fer ya`s today. Sure could use some snow.

13 degrees this morning and partly cloudy. It snowed all day yesterday...hard....looks like we got about a foot!!!!

Groomer Gerald was the only one to run last night. He did the Falls trail #45. He called me this morning ( thanks Jer ) and called it excellent!! Not sure on the schedule for today.

I talked to a few snowmobiliers yesterday and they all said they are having a blast. They did tell me there was a few trees down on the trails from the blizzard we had the day before so watch out for them. Now let me ask you all a favor. If you come upon a tree down could you and a couple of you`re buddies at least try to move it off the trail? It sure would be safer for the other riders out there. If you can`t move it report it to anybody in town at the stores or hotels and they will let us know.

16 degrees this morning and cloudy. Yesterday was down right nasty. It was a blizzard all day!! The good news is we didn`t get any rain but it did get up to 33. Hard to say how much snow we got but it sure did blow around. We have in access of 3 feet on the ground....so its all good. This coming weekend is supposed to be nice....so come on UP!!!

I think a couple guys went out grooming but I never heard a word from them......COME ON GUYS.....I need to hear from you to give a report!!!!! As all of you know who follow me I will not give you a false report, so I need some cooperation from our fellow groomers.

The one thing I do know is our one groomer is still down.....this really sucks....we are working on it though. Another thing I do know is we`ll have the trails in tip top shape for ya`s this weekend.....except for maybe the swamp.....cause of this darn groomer. All I got fer ya`s today....sorry.

14 degrees this morning and cloudy. We haven`t seen the sun in more than a week. Which is good I suppose, but I could use a sunny day. Looks like we picked up another 3-4 inches last night too. Just in case you are wondering we have a solid 3 feet on the ground and "they" are calling for around 6 inches more in the next couple days!!! Now.....on to the trails...

The boys haven`t been doing a good job of letting me know how their runs went....just a simple text or quick call will do boys....but I know we are in good shape. I ran the Falls trail #45 Saturday night and it turned out in pretty good shape. I DID NOT break through any water holes but there are a couple of soft spots and a couple of bumpy spots from the ground heave in the low lands from freezing. The Point trails #452 and 453 are good and the Pine Stump trail #8 is good but alot of drifting problems on this trail around the old burned area. I know all this from talking with some of the snowmobiliers. Trail #8 south through our swamp is still not passable but is getting close...the gates are still closed in there.

We still have that darn groomer down...it is causing us FITS!!! Just can`t figure it out. We have replaced the lift pump, the injector pump and all the injectors and it still won`t fire. We are leaning towards an electrical problem now, maybe the brain fried, I know ours are!!! Any good diesel mechanics out there that can come UP??

This coming weekend is a holiday weekend. You won`t be dissapointed if you come UP...plenty of snow and the trails are good. If we can get this other groomer runnin we`ll be in great shape....if not....we`ll still be good to go. We just need it going to get into the south swamp more. All I got today, keep checking back.

Groomer Mike and I went south today. Mike worked the south swamp and groomed the raco and Hulbert cut. Hard to groom had some wet areas which makes the drag load up and not filter right. Federal forest from m-123 to Curley Lewis was ok had one bad water hole that will need some more cold weather. The power line from Silver Creek to the river mouth has two holes that need some attention. Be careful on these trails they are not the best conditions but can be passable if cautious.The south swamp is still closed and is extremely wet. If you like your sled and you pretty gear obey the gates and ribbon and stay out of it (Or when i come in to pull you out I will take pics and post). This is the trail north of the river heading towards Paradise connecting with the town trail. .We are working hard to get these trails in shape you. We are still a groomer down and we have to keep up on the trails but yet find time to get our third groomer going.

7 degrees this morning and snowing. We picked up another 3 inches lastnight too. We are still under a lake effect warning untill tomorrow evening!! "They" are calling for about another foot till then. Good news...bad news first...hmmmm....lets start with good.

Groomer Gerald ran the Falls trail #45 last night for the first time pulling a drag. He called me when he was done and reported it turned out in fair condition. Still alittle work to be done on this one but he got the water holes filled in again and panned out. He said its decent but just be careful....don`t go hauling butt down this trail just yet....or ever really....its a busy trail with everyone wanting to go to the Falls and the Pub out there. We didn`t run any other trails yesterday....I`ll explain next.

Now the bad.....sort of. We didn`t get the broken down groomer back UP yesterday. Everybody got busy yesterday digging out and we couldn`t get out to work on it till the afternoon. This is the reason we didn`t run any other trails also.....remember we are just a small group with other jobs and business to run. We are gonna get back at `er today and try to get it done. Not sure on the grooming schedule today either....sorry....we`ve been engrossed in gettin this groomer back UP. I do know we are trying to get back into the south swamp, hopefully tomorrow, if we can get this groomer back up. I also know we`ll have the trails in tip top shape for ya`s this weekend except maybe the south swamp. Dats it fer today. LET ER SNOW!!!!! Groomer Chris

20 degrees this morning and a stiff NW wind a blowing. Light snow falling and we have a 1000 footer parked out front which usually means more is a coming!!! We got about 3 fresh inches on my deck this morning too. We are still under a lake effect snow warning.

I`ve got more great news too.....our part for the broken groomer came in late yesterday afternoon!!!! We`ll be out working on that this morning and gettin` er back on the trail!!!! That`s if everything goes smooth. Its quite complicated puttin a fuel injector pump back in. Last time this happened we had to hire a mechanic to do it but we watched and helped so we think we can do it this time. Wish us luck!!

More good news.....Groomer Gerald is going to run the Falls trail #45 with a drag for the first time today. With this cold and snow he should be able to get it up to good shape. He`ll let me know tonight when he gets done and I`ll let ya`ll know tomorrow morning on my report. Not sure at this time what we are going to do with the other groomer. We will probably get into the south swamp tomorrow if everything goes smooth fixin the other groomer today.

If you`re thinking about coming UP this weekend....go for it!!! I think you`ll be happy you did. All I got for now but keep checking back.

"They" are calling for a foot PLUS of snow!!!! Can you tell I'm excited!!!! Bring it on Ole Man Winter!!!!

Everthing went smooth yesterday. The Point trails and the Pine Stump trail are both good. The bad news is we are still down a groomer till next week. This is gonna suck when we get this snow. We WILL do the best we can to keep UP so please be patient. As soon as this part arrives we will have the groomer back on the trail....I guarantee it.

Well...not much fer ya's today, but dats all I gots. Keep checking back. It could get interesting tomorrow. LET ER SNOW!!!!      Groomer Chris

32 degrees this morning and partly cloudy. Today and tomorrow are supposed to get into the 30's.......not so good for our wet trails.....then drop like a rock....dis is gooooood!!!!

Groomers Mike & Gerald spent 8 hrs. working on the Falls trail #45 yesterday with 2 machines. This trail is normally 4 hrs. round trip so they put in A LOT of work. They got the holes filled in with snow and packed down so ya'll can get through. There is still a couple of wet spots but you can get around them. We were hesitant to open up the gates but we did...just be REAL CAREFUL in there. The warmer weather the next couple days isn't gonna help so we are staying outa there with groomers till probably Thursday or Friday. Again.....the trail is now open but be careful!!!!

Groomer Dave M. is runnin the Point trails #452 and 453 as I write this. They both are in good shape.

Groomer Loren is running the Pine Stump trail #8 later today. It is in good shape also.

We won't get into the south swamp till the weather chills in a couple days.

26 degrees this morning and snowing. We hit 46 yesterday.....NOT GOOD!!! The weather guessers are calling for 1-3 today but possibly up to 6 if the lake effect really kicks in, its supposed to stay cooler the rest of the week too. And.... "thats all I got to say about that". I love Forest Gump!! Now....on to the plans.....

We are gonna trailer 2 groomers down to the Silver Creek Tavern today and get into the low land across the road and run down the power line south of town tomorrow. We`ll probably run into the swamp too if everything goes well. We haven`t been down any of these trails yet this year. As far as the Falls trail #45 is concerned, its still not passable. We`ll get to that asap.

If you`re thinking about coming UP, there`s still plenty of ridin to be had, you just have to stay on high ground....ie: trail #8 to Pine Stump and trail #452 & #453 around the Point. That`s all I got fer ya`s today. Keep checking back. LET ER SNOW!!!! Groomer Chris

21 degrees this morning and its starting to snow pretty hard. Looks like we picked up another 2 inches last night also. Looking at the radar and weather reports on the computer we are supposed to get around 3 more inches today and 3 more tonight....YEA!!!! Now on too business.....

We ran to the Falls yesterday and it was in pretty rough shape. Lots of water holes and muddy. The gates remain closed....don`t even try it!! The bad news is, on the way back we had a groomer break down. We`re thinking either a fuel injector or the injector pump....DARN IT!!!!! We had to tow it from the Lower Falls back to the barn. So, we didn`t get done what we wanted to get done.....and we`re down a groomer till probably next week sometime. This is why I said our plans are "etched in snow".

The boys ARE runnin to Pine Stump as I type this with our 2 remaining groomers. Groomer Loren will call me tonight with the details on how that went. This is a 10 and a half hour run on a good day so I probably won`t hear from him till later tonight....Good luck boys!!

We do still plan on runnin the Point trail tomorrow but runnin the south swamp trail might have to wait till we can get our broken groomer fixed. MORE WORK.....DARN IT again....we just can`t catch a break!!!!! Well.....keep checking back. Groomer Chris
