On The Trails

All conditions have been updated on January 13th, 2022

  • Gogebic Range Snowmobile Trails
    • 1/8- NOT A BAD TRAIL TO BE FOUND. Grooming crew last night went hard and hit all trails except 11s!!  Exceptional riding forecast for today and beyond. High winds causing fresh drifting bumps on the trail. Please support our sponsors!! 1/7- All trails under our authority have been groomed with the exception of the Aurora Club trail due to Sisu Ski Fest. Cloverland Motorsports is now renting sleds, snow suits,, gloves, boots, and helmets with heated Shields. Please support our sponsors! Some spots of our system have seen well over 2 feet and the rest has seen at least 10in or more. 160, 11S, 8 and 2 were all groomed overnight for your safety. We only day groom during season kick off or emergencies. Daytime grooming is simply not a good time to be on the trails, snow can’t set up like it requires to withstand the traffic. We are an all volunteer group losing our sleep for your smiles. Support us today!!!
