Snowmobile Trail Report (2-4-11)

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Reported By:  Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club
Date of Report:  February 4th, 2011
Trail Conditions:  Very Good
Snow Cover:  20-25 inches

SNOW CONDITIONS:
No new snow this week. It may be time to send a message to the big guy for a few more inches of snow before too long.


TRAIL REPORT:
Trails are still in very good condition. Trails continue to be groomed on a regular schedule of Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. I did see the groomer out on Saturday morning last weekend on the Chippewa South trail. Not many riders this week until today due to the cold weather. Riders I talked to say the trails are very nice. Small section of logging on the Chippewa South trail (1/8 of a mile) and on the Triville trail just north of hwy 200. Several riders I talked to today told me the Chippewa West trail is the best it’s been in years.

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-20-11)

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Reported By:  Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club
Date of Report:  January 20th, 2011
Trail Conditions:  Excellent
Snow Cover:  25-30 inches

AREA REPORT: We received 6-8 inches of new snow last weeked which just adds to the snow we already had. I don’t recall having this much snow on the ground this time of year since the mid 90’s.

TRAIL REPORT: Trails continue to be in excellent condition. They’re being groomed on a regular schedule of Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. I was told by the groomers they will be out early Saturday if necessary to get the more heavily traveled areas of the trails. Haven’t been a lot of riders this week due to the cold weather, so the trails should be in good condition this weekend. The few brave souls I have talked to this week say the trails are great.

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-3-11)

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Reported By:  Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club
Date of Report:  January 3rd, 2011
Trail Conditions:  Excellent
Snow Cover:  20-25 inches

AREA REPORT: Snow Conditions – I’ve got great news. We had 10-12 inches of new snow fall late last week.
Snow was sticky which should provide the trails with a great base.

TRAIL REPORT: We had a lot of riders over the past holiday week. Trails are being groomed on a schedule of Monday/Tuesday and again Thursday/Friday. With the new snow, the trails will be as good as they’ve been for some time over the next few weeks. There’s logging on the Chippewa West, South and Triville trails, but only for very small stretches. Nows the time to come up and enjoy the trails!!

We had the luxury of hosting a pilot this week who actually flew his own plane into Longville and then drove to visit us at Thunder Lake Lodge.  We would like to thank Danny & Doris for the great photos they took of Thunder Lake Lodge from the air.  Thought we would share them with you.  For those of you that have been here before, you will have an appreciation and understanding of the water color from the photos.  Enjoy:
