Well up here in I falls I got the sleds out and went for a little ride there was enough snow on the trails but from my house to the trails I had a bit of grinding on the road. But with the snow coming in the near future I'm ready

When I was driving through Mahnomen this afternoon, I saw a few sleds zipping around on barely covered grass. It is the same exact crew that I find zipping around when there is about an inch of snow, they just don't seem to care.

Picture received this morning from just north of the cities... I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't go down there to clean the carbs, get a new helmet, and ride for the first time in almost 4 or 5 years (my sled is down there)! But, being it is the cities area, those trails won't make it until tomorrow until they are torn up and pretty much dirt.

8.5 inches here and still coming hard! Not even going to try ditches or trails. Let someone else pack the base. I did go around the yard and the back field though!

Unreal... hopefully another storm develops in the next 2 weeks down there, that's the next time I'll be there to work on the sled. They don't groom the trails, and more snow will be necessary if I'm ever going to ride it down there before January.

I'm wondering the same thing. Michigan is too warm, so our crew is heading to Grand Marais Minnesota. Does anyone know if trails are open on that side of the lake or anywhere in the vicinity? Looking to get there on Saturday.

I'll be in Superior/ Duluth next weekend. Hope there is enough by then. Will probably end up around MPLS though.

Well I ended up emailing some trail club up in Grand Marais, and basically it sounds like it's not quite ready for snowmobilers yet. The swamps and lakes aren't frozen yet and there's not enough snow to start grooming. Looks we're looking at plan c.

Trails around Duluth are all pretty rough yet, less snow the farther north you go. Possibly some more coming this weekend though!

Is there enough snow in the Minneapolis area for good riding for 5 days? Is it already melting? I really need to find somewhere to go snowmobiling this Saturday. Any input on where trails are open and decent would be VERY helpful!

I heard the groomers were going all over. Check out this page tomorrow. Snow Conditions/Snow Reports/Snow Depth: Minnesota DNR

If you end up going let me know how it is. I'll be up there the following week of Christmas.

WILDEN take a look at Polk Co Wisc trails are open 10-14 of depth Polk Co is about 50 miles north and 40-50 to the east of the twin cities--its where I'd go if you're itchin to ride. If you go try the east & northern areas better trails less people--west side has the Gandy dancer if you like rail bed riding.

I think right now we're planning to go to western Minnesota, maybe Hutchinson or farther west to Granite Falls, those trails seem to be open and at least rideable. If anyone up there had more info about those areas that'd be great, but that's where we're planning to ride Saturday.

Well we did find snow, we're in Willmar Minnesota. The trails are hit and miss, some are really bare, sometimes down to dirt, but a lot of the ditches have a good amount of snow and we're still having a good time. Sounds like there's a chance we'll have snow when we return to Iowa!
