OK, we did get up in the upper 40's yesterday with some afternoon sun. Trails did not get a lot of traffic so everything is still solid as we did get below freezing last night. Groomers were out and got all trails groomed which is where the flat and hard comes from. The roads are pavement now and the parking lots. Our parking lot is still completely covered as there is probably a 10 inch base. That being said if the temps get back up above freezing which they may on Friday, it may get soft for driving on. The forecast from now through the weekend look good with today getting up to 35 with the low tonight 1, tomorrow the high of 12 and low tomorrow night -12, Thursday high of 23 and the low 15 and for Friday 37 low 10 and then Saturday 19 low -5. There is a 50% chance of snow on Friday night and sunny on Saturday.
I spoke with one of our guests this morning that has been riding for the last few days and he said the only dirty areas he came across were right at the falls. He did say that trails were hard and fast and could use some fresh snow for the benefit of the sleds. He actually said that if the groomers were not out grooming everything flat it would've been better as there would be some loose stuff to keep things cool. It did get up to 48 yesterday.
I can't bring myself to call it "late season riding" yet as we still have soooo much snow. The only thing that is typical with this time of year is the roads are down to pavement and the parking lots that the town trail crosses over. Other than that its still winter here!
We are closing this Sunday for the season. You may leave your trucks and trailers here for the day if you want to ride on Sunday after you check out. But this weekend will be the last time you can stay with us so get on U.P. here!
Stay here at the Magnuson Grand Hotel Lakefront Paradise in Paradise and ride out in any direction right from our parking lot. Plan a day trip up to Grand Marais on the famous trail #8 northwest, then the next day Sault Ste. Marie or Brimley on trail #8 south, and a shorter day to Whitefish Point via #452 and hook up with #45 to the Falls. You can even head south to Naubinway, Curtis, St. Ignace. The hotel offers a continental breakfast with a hot side including scrambled eggs, sausage, and fresh pancake maker. We have the indoor heated pool, hot tub and sauna to help you recover from a long day in the cold and a welcoming, warm lobby with a fire going in the beautiful fireplace so you can curl up in the comfy couches and talk about your day.
Little Falls Inn and Red Flannel Saloon right at the entrance of the driveway that is walking distance to a nice meal and a tasty beverage!
We have it all right here! So come on U.P. and experience the best!
