The Gunflint 'G Trail' Snowmobile Trail System is groomed five to six days a week on a rotating basis, so that each section of the trail is groomed two to three times each week. The cold weather has assured that the ice has thickened up too. Most trails are rolled, and riders are reporting good conditions, but do watch out for rocky areas, as the powder snow is still light in some areas.

Lack of significant new snow continues to try and hinder our efforts to Groom the Trails. Thin snow still remains down by the big lake. Gas, Food, and Lodging are available via the Trail System. Just remember that caution should be used in these areas. As I moved away from Lake Superior today on my ride, I found plenty of good snow. Lutsen Access, the State Trail, and Caribou snowmobile Trails, all were in good condition. Beware of the occasional "Sucker Bumps" that still remain. Plenty of snow to lube the track with great cornering from the skis made for an awesome 30 mile afternoon social ride. Grooming will continue with new snow in the forecast for tomorrow. Larry, our trail reporter says, "Remember: Shinny side up, Rubber side down." Ride safe and have fun! Grooming will continue as snow accumulates, anticipate conditions to move from fair, to good, to excellent in the near future as more snow is in the forecast.

People have been riding on the inland portion. Reports stated there is a good base in most places, and the trails are in fair to good shape. With the trails in good shape, the DNR advises that when the extended freeze ends, more machines will out and about in significant numbers, and urges everyone to ride safely.

The trails are fair to good for riding, but do watch for some exposed rocky areas. As the snow accumulates this coming week, we expect the conditions to improve significantly!
