For the past few weeks many of you have been clicking in wondering what the snow conditions are like here in the Arrowhead and unfortunately all we can report is that we are still a few inches away from the trails being rideable, and that’s the worst part about it- WE ARE ONLY A FEW INCHES AWAY! But those inches of white fluffy powder have thus far been elusive. Duluth keeps getting skirted by every storm that rolls through the Midwest. The good news is that the first weekend of 2015 brought snow farther north and we are waiting for our comrades in extreme Northeast Minnesota to report back to us later this week. As of last week the DNR had packed the CJ Ramstad North Shore State Trail from Finland to Grand Marais and were waiting on more snow, and some parts received that snow today. The Gunflint area has been getting good snow as well but we have not heard any reports of any trails being open yet. Hopefully by this weekend we will have better news for you.
