I'm heading to up there thursday morning to ride for the day, We plan to unload at the trail head just north of Pine Stump. I was up there the day after x-mas and it was darn good riding given its the only place in the state with snow. Anyways hopefully they will be alright for us on thursday.

It has been warm the last couple of days like 40 today, They the weather man says it will be getting colder buy day break, and light snow and blowing starting on Thursday, And from what they have been saying today it sounds like winter will be here on Thursday as well alot colder temps and winds out of the north off the big lake so that should start the lake effect up, temps are going to be cold and snow for the weekend, hope this helps some of ya out ? If you guys get buy winter haven motel stop in and say hi to Jeff out there, tell him where you got that from, Here is a toll free number to the motel as well for rooms or snow updates also, 877-546-3901 happy trails.[:)]

Well i was there today 1/9 and it sucked BAD. The trials would be great if they just would get some snow. Maybe this storm they keep talking about will hit and things will be better, Untill then i would not advise anyone going up there. We rode out of pine stump and rode around that area. Going into Grand Maris is HORRIBLE. NO SNOW, all ICE.

Well all I can tell you Is you left to early because out at winter haven motel as of 6pm tonight they have gotten 1 - 3in and I'm sure it Is more buy now. Just went outside and checked and we have about 3in right now and still coming down pretty good, so It looks like we will be getting some snow just don't know how much yet, will update in the morning on the total so far, It is about 10 above out right now.
At least the people coming to this area have at least been getting in some riding,As there are alot of other folks that would just love to be riding them new sleds, as I know alot of people that cannot ride at all.
Let's hope that will all change to the better./snofan/../images/users/elanman/Riding Kitty Cat #3 1-1-03.jpg

Well up towards Paridise Is where they got the most snow out of this last blast, Upwards of 18 in In spots, Around the Newberry area about a foot, 10miles to the south of Newberry towards Curtis around 12 - 14 in. talked with some sleders yesterday that where up towards Munising and said the trails where in pretty good shape, We have gotten about another 3 in of new snow from last night. There are lots of sleds around so I'm sure the trails will not be staying in the shape there In for very long, There are also gromming the south trails out of Newberry towards Rexton.[|)]

Well If your looking for snow head towards Paridise more than 30in over the past few days, If you are looking for a place to stay well that's another thing maybe your truck.
Here in Newberry area we have gotten over the past couple of days about 8in of new snow. Out towards Winter Haven Motel closer to foot. The trails are all in pretty good shape, even the south trails untill the snow gets alittle thin.
The Curtis grommer has grommed the trail towards Newberry,If you are going to be around the Newberry trails WATCH OUT FOR THE GROMMERS DURING THE DAY,AS THEY WILL BE OUT RUNNING AROUND THE CLOCK, At least for the next few days, I'm not sure about this weekend yet.[8)]

Well we have gotten a few more in of snow over the last couple of days, and the temps have been very cold here, they are saying it Is going to warm up a little.
The trails are all reported to be in very good shape also, The Groomer from Curtis has done the trail towards Newberry again lastnight.
If you are going to be around the Newberry area this weekend ? As THE GROOMERS WILL Be OUT RUNNING PRETTY MUCH AROUND THE CLOCK ALL WEEKEND AND DURING THE DAYLIGHT AS WELL. So keep this in mind when you go into them corners. Now only you can make it a safe weekend happy trails.[:eek:)]
