Hi everyone. Thanks for all those checking out the site and contributing. We love to see the comments! If you have any links you would like to share, post them as a comment and then we will get them on the links page.
Sled traffic was decent over the weekend. The trail has been groomed well this weekend. Thank you Gaylord groomers!!!!!!! It is nice to catch it going by. The trail is the most beautiful when it gets groomed a couple times in a row before sleds go on it. Riding a freshly groomed trail is great!
As always, still tinkering with how many pictures the camera captures, so the sled estimates are just that, estimates.
Lots of riders on Saturday and the trails are holding up. Over 400 new pictures on Saturday. So many people waited to get trail permits that the Sled Shed in Gaylord ran out of them but they had the part to fix my helmet, thanks. Looks like there should be another snow storm on Tuesday and next weekend should be great to ride again.
There is lots of snow in Gaylord! Schools are closed. The trail has 6-8 inches of new heavy snow!
Sometime after ~ 12:15 AM the internet where the camera is went down. Let’s pray it was not because of the accidents on Old 27. So, we are waiting on Charter to get the internet back up again so we can see and hear the sleds whizzing by!
Their was a little bit of snow overnight. Enough to turn the brown on the trail to white but just slightly. Sleds today will turn that brown again.
There were about 15 sleds on Saturday, January 7th pass by the camera. We got quite a few pictures of the falling snow as well. I will adjust the camera’s sensitivity over the next few days so we get pictures of sleds and the groomer and not of falling snow!
Thanks for checking in! If you have any suggestions for the sight, let us know! You can make a post and we will get it.
Well, you could ride, but it is not great at all. Let’s just hope the temps stay below freezing so we don’t lose any more snow. If you are already up there, you probably can get some short rides in around Gaylord if you don’t mind puddles.
Sled Count Estimate for Friday: 10 sleds. Way lower than it should be for a Friday, January 6th!
