Another weekend come & gone, as is the first month of the New Year. I finally had the chance to get out for a nice ride with Hal & Jenny yesterday. We rode our customary “on trail/off trail” stuff a little west of Grand Marais out into the plains and what an absolutely beautiful day it was to be out there! The trails were in pretty good shape for an afternoon run on a Saturday, but the corners were getting very thin around Sable Lake the closer we got to town. Typical, but very thin nonetheless so….slow it down & be careful, especially in those areas on the 8′s with a lot of tight corners. Other than that, there’s still plenty of good snow out there with a solid 6+ base in most areas. The weather guru’s are calling for more snow with north winds through the first half of this week with temps in the high teens to low 20′s. This should get the LES guns firing once again UP here in the snow belts, so who knows how much accumulation we’ll end up with. A few inches today, a few again tomorrow, etc., etc., everyday makes for happy snowmobilers. This is how we get through the winter UP here & thanks again for all of your support! Just keep it coming for 2 more months this year & we’ll all be happy! Life’s too short not to be. Enjoy, be safe & please, don’t drink or be under the influence when you ride. P.S. Don’t forget to keep voting for Grand Marais 10 times/day through the Reader’s Digest Contest! Also, thanks again for dropping a few bucks into the Groomer Fund boxes. Every little bit helps keep ‘em out there keeping the trails in great shape for all of us. Your support is greatly appreciated. Cheers!
