1.19.13 Lots of new snow, groomers are out

Oh yes, we got a lot of snow.  It’s still snowing.

They’ve been out grooming on both sides of the trail system since 5 AM.  Grooming while it is snowing is not ideal, but it is the only option today. You are going to find snow in the tracks of freshly groomed trails.  In fact, when Bob finished grooming Bear Cub early this morning, when he crossed back over what he had done first, it no longer looked newly groomed.  They’ll groom everything today, but you should expect to see fresh snow even on newly groomed trails.  That’s just the way it is going to be today.

Comments:  Lots of great snow this week!  Both Groomers are out on the system this morning!  Please check with Golden Eagle Lodge or Bearskin Lodge for specific conditions and information on each trail.

About Bearskin

Once upon a time Sue McCloughan was a K-6 media/technology specialist, worrying about bar codes, book budgets and barfing 1st graders. On July 20th, 2007, Sue, Bob, Kaitlin and Quinn McCloughan bought Bearskin Lodge on the Gunflint Trail near Grand Marais, MN -- and all Sue's worries changed. If she seems somewhat incoherent while writing this blog, it's because her already overly taxed mind has been preccupied learning about potato salad, pea gravel, turbidity, crawl spaces, off-peak heaters, lake structure and antiquated front desk cash registers.
