I just got back from the area myself and have to agree they did a good job with the snow they had. It looked like quite a bit of grooming had been done. However, if you're planning to go up just keep in mind that there isn't a huge amount of snow on the ground. Trails that run on unplowed roads are in nice condition, some of the trails that run ditchlines or through the twisties are in fair condition at best. Trails aren't overly rough, but the snow is definitely thin in many places. Also, given the snow conditions (still soft), it won't take a lot of traffic to tear things up.

95% of my riding is done in the Mercer/Hurley/Ironbelt area and those guys always do a good job. If you stay off that main grade from Mercer to Hurley, you will find a chit load of trails kept in great shape.

Michigan is for weekdays only, I have had great luck with trails during the week and I think one time we had great trails from Berglund to PI on a weekend and it was 3am and the groomer was just in front of us.

I have not had time to go out and check the trails so this report comes from a local sled rental shop. Snow is limited to a small area around Ironwood, West to Saxon, 5 to 10 miles south of Mercer, East to Marinesco just, North to Silver City but snow runs out at Silver City and Lake Gogebic has snow more on the North end not sure on the South end. Now the good news trails are good to very good from what I have heard there are some thin areas and wet areas but overall not bad it just limited as to how far you can ride. Remember this is not from me personally as I have not had time to go out and ride the trails myself yet. Just remember if you want to ride this is just about the only place you can ride in the Mid -West it is limited but you can ride. Sam.

I'm from northern MN and those towns are begging for snow so they can get some $$ rollin' through town.. Nobody likes congested trails but we can all get along, can't we? :beerchug: Generally, how bad does it get on the weekend? I like to have a little room to breathe..

When you have the only ridable snow within a reasonable drive expect to have some company!

If things don't turn around in the next month my trip to northern MN might have to hang a right at Duluth and head on over! :div20:

Keep the snow flyin'!
