Smile Coming up this weekend

Hi! I have a group coming up to St. Ignace this weekend. We had originally hoped to go across the Ice Bridge but that doesn't seem like it will happen so we decided to come up for some sledding anyway. How are the trails? It looks like you're gong to get some snow this week but I just wanted to check and see what the chances are for having a good ride out of St. Ignace. Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the site. The trails are in excellent shape other than a few areas that are totally passable. This coming weekend we are having our Bent ski poker run. It will be a great time. Where are you planning on staying? Let me know if you have any questions and I will help you in any way I can. Glad to see you coming to St Ignace and I'm sure you will enjoy your ride.

Welcome to the site.

St. Ignace trails are some of the best maintained and groomed trails in the State of Michigan.

You will have to trailer for sure from that motel this season. Ice rink lot, or further North would be decided after we are finished with this storm.

Amy, I personally only stay at the Super 8 or Budget Host when I'm in town. The Super 8 owner is our club president and the Budget host owner donates alot of his time to the club. I believe in supporting the people that support our hobby. Both places are very nice and clean and have a hot tub and pool. You can't go wrong with either. The Super 8 is on US 2 and has a great view of the bridge and the Budget host in in town.

I hope you are gonna participate in our Bent ski poker run this weekend. It will be a very fun event. I will be at the trail stop cooking hotdogs from 11-2 so stop by and introduce your self and I can give you some clues to solving the puzzle on the poker run. Have travels and hope to meet you Sat.

Amy:

We always stay at the Budget Host. Easy trail access right out the back parking lot. The Driftwood bar/restaurant is two minutes walking distance. Great food.

Super 8 is nice as well. Main trail is a little harder to get to, but not bad at all.

Both hotels have free Casino shuttles.

Thanks for the info Don. We were looking at the Super 8 so as long as we can ride out to the trails from there, we're all set and we'll be changing our reservation! Thanks again!

Amy,
This storm is losing its steam. You can ride from the Super 8, but please be aware you will have to cross US-2, and you will have some grinding along the sides of teh road for a mile or so to get to a groomed trail. Our trails are in decent shape, but the low snow hurt us around town so getting around is a bit tougher than normal.

Good news is they are forecasting a few inches on Friday.

Thanks Neil. Really not looking forward to scratching along the road for a mile or so......sounds like Budget Host might be a better idea for trail access, even though their rates are higher than Super 8. Don mentioned that we can pick up the trails from their back parking lot.....

We will be at the Super 8 as always.

We trailered out last Saturday but they got some snow Saturday night and Sunday morning. I would think enough to get out of town without a lot of trouble.

Kenny rents a house just off the town trail that goes to the Super 8 so he would know.

Glad you changed to a hotel that supports us. The owners of those 2 are the only ones I've ever seen helping during the brushing and signing in the fall and I've been going for over 10 years. Both great people and great places to stay.

I've been staying at the Super 8 long enough that I know the combination to the fridge in Jimmys garage. LOL!!!!

We are gonna ride local on Thursday and then do a short saddlebag trip to Munising Friday and Saturday. We should be back in time to catch some of you at the Grill Saturday night.

We are staying at the super 8 as well. Hope they get a little more snow for the Bent Ski classic.
