Default Trail Conditions 2-02-15

COLD COLD COLD.
-16 this morning and now only -6 on our way to 2d this afternoon. Should be better tomorrow for pond hockey rink surveying, and then back cold into the teens for the rest of the week. Maybe a trace of snow here and there, but now major storms in the forecast. Still an inch or two will spruce things up pretty good.

The weekend trails fared great, there may be almost unridable mougled trails in other parts of the state, but small stutter bumps is all you will find around here. Groomers take care of them daily and are running 7 days a week out of both Iggy and Brevort. Moore groomer drivers training this week with daytime runs during the week.

Overall we could use a bit more snow on the RR Grade, but other then that everything is rock hard, flat and fast. I see no reason that the trail will change anytime soon.

Make your reservations now, stay in Iggy and ride to the Soo for the I-500 next weekend. Day-riders are welcome to drop at our trailhead downtown St. Ignace near the ice rink and head North.

Keep the track side down and have a blast!

The first brave soles crossed via sled from Mackinac Island this morning. I just returned from surveying the LaBatte Blue UP Pond Hockey Championship ice rinks out in the Moran Bay. We had 10-12" of ice in the bay. As I was finishing up 2 sleds crossed back to the island, followed by the Mackinac Icebreaker headed to the St. Ignace dock, and a freighter in the straits.

I have not heard the ice thickness yet, The treeline is not up, and it is not considered safe to cross.
