The ten day forecast has some above freezing temperatures on Monday and Friday of next week. Also that "R" word is rearing its ugly head on Monday. It wont hurt our trails because our base is so good right now, but it is a sign of things to come. March 31 is coming and the end of our favorite season. Only 22 days of riding left. Can't you hear the UP calling? Get up here and get those last rides in while the weather holds! Times a wastin!!!!
Our annual Fun Run concluded Saturday March 1 with a fun party. First place: Dave Jacobs with a straight flush. Second Place: Terri VanHorn with 4 aces. Third place Gary Shodrock with 4 fives. Fifty-fifty winner Cory Nieman. There were also many other winners of gift certificates and other prizes. Plan on the first Saturday in March 2015 for our next fun run.
Enjoy the trails but most of all be careful! We want you to return to friends and family in good condition and ready to come back and enjoy our trails again. Twenty three snowmobilers went back home in a box last year. Already at least 12 have died this year!
I am posting a special advisory for all snowmobilers using our trails. A portion of our trail to Trout Lake runs along some power lines parallel to M-123. Cloverland Electric is replacing lines and poles along this section, which is about 3 miles long. Work will not be finished until sometime in early January 2014. The area has been signed and you are cautioned to use lower speeds and caution when riding this stretch. Watch for powerline equipment and workers!
If you wish to contact me about this report or if you have questions about our area you can use the following email: email@example.com In addition we have a staging area at the Snow Chaser Clubhouse on Strongs Road. You can use it for a day, a weekend or a week or two if you wish to ride into the sunset for a while. Directions from the Junction of M-28 and M-123. Proceed east on M-28 toward Sault Ste. Marie for 3 miles. You will be at Strongs Corners. You will see the Lumberjack Tavern on your right and Pats Bar on the left. Turn right (south) on Strongs Rd. and go approximately 1/4 mile. The driveway is on the right and you will see the Snowchaser sign next to the driveway. Park in front of the building otherwise there might be some groomer tracks on the top of your truck and trailer when you come back. Coming from the Sault. Look for the Strongs Corners sign and turn left at the Lumberjack Tavern.
