This should be a great weekend to ride. We got some new snow and the weather looks like it is going to be perfect. I was on the trail the other day and there was plenty of snow and it was pretty smooth.
If you have time you can stop in at the Alpenfrost festival downtown Gaylord. It is only 1 block from the trail and it runs from 9 am to 3 pm. Food, games, ice skating and more. Joe
Well the rain melted a lot of snow but it has stopped now. We might be getting 2-12 inches of snow by Friday night and it could be good ridding again by this weekend.
I also take care of the ice rink in downtown Gaylord and it should be ready to skate on by this weekend, so come into town and check it out and the ice tree. You can see the ice tree on the county website at www.otsegocountymi.gov
We had approximately 3000 pictures taken by the camera on Saturday. This equates to 1000-1250 sled sightings! I have not checked all the pictures yet, so some may be of people stopping by, but none the less, it is the most the camera has taken in one day! Thanks!
Glad everyone got to ride. Sounds like a warm up coming next week. Yuck!
Update: Just checked through the pictures and most were of snowmobiles going by. Definitely a record day!
We did get at least 4 inches last night with some blowing. Before the snow started we had thunder and lightning, don’t see that very often in January. We should get snow everyday this week and the temps are going to stay on the cold side. Joe
Just a quick post to let you know that if you are having an issue getting the “images” page to pull up it’s because there are so many sleds going by! 1200+ pictures today, which usually means 400-600 sleds went by at least. Nice!
The snow is really holding up for so many sleds. The temps all day have been ~ 20. I am sure that is helping. We could use some more snow though!
The trail is doing great with all the traffic. After the snow storm the there were hundreds of trees on the trail and the trail maintenance crew got them cleared enough to ride by the next day. Thank you.
We should be getting some new snow over the next couple of days so come on up and enjoy it.
