Groomers Report:

Twenty seven degrees warmer this morning than yesterday.   No chance of snow melt for the next 10 days.  The trails are groomed and ready with new snow on the way!  All we need is you and your snowmobiles!  Come to the UP and enjoy our awesome trails!  Fun Run ends today, get your stamps and we will see you tonight at the Clubhouse!!

Our annual Fun Run opened on February 14 and concludes today March 1. We conclude with a great meal and a fun gathering at our clubhouse.  If that doesn’t get your motor running you are in pretty sad shape!  See below for additional information !  The trails are still flat with plenty of snow and wonderful scenic vistas.  The only thing missing is YOU!

USING 911 MARKERS

Along the Chippewa Snow Chaser Trails you will see small rectangular signs with two letters and four numbers on them. If you have an accident on the trail and need emergency help the first thing the responders need to know is exactly where the victim is located. Send someone in your party in each direction to find the nearest sign. You should encounter a sign within one mile in either direction. Memorize the two letters and 4 numbers and give them to the 911 operator. These small signs if used as locators will tell the 911 operator where you are in the forest and the first responders will be able to get there quickly.

RUDYARD GROOMER FACILITIES

We do have the Rudyard Groomer Barn facility in use and we are able to start the season with the groomer in a heated area.  There is still some interior work to be done prior to hooking up the water and plumbing but this is expected to be completed shortly.  We are also ordering gravel to complete the grounds that will provide a circular route for the groomer entrance and exit.  The club also has an application turned into the DNR which would allow the grounds as a trail head and thus parking with an outdoor porta-john.   Extra gravel was ordered banking on the approval of the application.
