My wife and I went for a short ride to Wolverine and back. Trail was in good shape, only a couple of brown spots. Most of it was 1-2 inches of snow on top of ice and very smooth. Only saw 6 other riders, thought there would be more out on a beautiful sunny day.
We got about 3 inches yesterday and should get 2-4 today/tonight. The trail is rideable but not that great but it should be by tomorrow.
We are going to get some snow the next couple of days, hope it is enough to go riding on.
If you can’t go riding than you can come to the Alpenfrost in downtown Gaylord. More information at www.GaylordAlpenfrost.com
Well, if you did not get your riding in the past few days, you may have to wait. It looks like it could get into the 40′s today in Gaylord. The best we can hope for is no rain. Tomorrow it starts to cool off again, if you can call low 30′s “cool”.
The trail is very nice right now, let’s just hope it holds up!
Sled Count estimate for Monday, January 30th: 30
Well, if you were here, or are here now, you know of the awesome snow we got in Gaylord Saturday and Sunday! Probably a foot or more of nice new fluff! On the depth gage, we are at about a foot and a half. It is supposed to be 40 degrees and rainy on Tuesday. We sure don’t need that! If you want to ride, you might consider coming up for a ride on Monday.
Saturday January 28 sled count estimate: 350
The trail has held up through the warm spell. If temperatures stay in the 20′s this weekend the riding will be okay. Come get your riding in. You never know with this crazy winter if this will be the last riding weekend!
Friday January 27 sled count estimate: 125
We have had a decent number of sleds during the week. The weekend is here and the trail is not perfect, but it is rideable. At least today looks to be the warmest & cruddiest day. Tomorrow and Sunday look like snow and cold.
Busy week, no idea on a good estimate for sleds during the week. Sorry! Will take a look tomorrow to see how many went past today.
Wow! What an up and down winter for snow! In less than 4 days time we went from perfect, to dirt back to decent! The groomer made a north and south pass last night so that shows there is plenty of snow to ride on. It might not be like a normal winter, but at least we can ride.
Sled Count Estimate from Tuesday, January 24: 25
We had a lot of rain last night and today with an thunderstorm at 4am not what we expect in January. We might get 2 inches of snow tonight and a little more tomorrow. Not all of the snow is gone from the trail but a lot did melt, with the new stuff it should be ride able.
As you can see in the pictures no sleds today only a couple of kids. Mine of course on their third snow/ice day in a row.
