Weather: 20 degrees overnight, but temps are going down now.
Trail Conditions: Good to OK
Trails are getting better, cold is setting in for a few days and we have a good chance of snow early next week. We are long overdue in the snow department. A couple of inches possible today and tomorrow. Come on Mother Nature, be good to us.
The snowmobile detour on trail 8 adds a lot of miles coming to Bergland from the west, unless you take the Lake.
Snowmobile Detour the red shows were the trail was and the green is showing the detour. Using the Lake will get you into Bergland the fastest when coming from the west. This will be the route for the rest of the year, they are doing work on the closed section.
I have heard a lot of complaining about sleds and the way people drive. Most of the complaining I hear is from snowmobilers like yourselves. We have had 2 deaths up here in the last 10 days. Below is an email I received from one of the locals that ride. Don’t take this wrong we are not referring to all the out of town’ers as assholes, we have some local assholes, just not as many. What he says in his email is true, I have quit trying to warn people about riding on the highway because all I get is an attitude back.
Hey Tom another weekend is coming upon us and I have put my sled away for the weekend. I am a local and it is not safe to drive the trails on the weekends up here with all the out of town, as you would call them ASSHOLES. They rip up and down the trails like they own them . You never know what idiot is coming around the corner out of control. Watching convoys of sleds coming down the highways into town and when you confront them about it their answer is I did not know. If your going to come up here follow the damn rules or leave your sorry asses at home, Know the rules and the laws and learn how to read a trail map. The Railroad tracks are also a two lane highway. More people are going to get killed up here with all these fools running around. You do notice the people getting killed are all out of towners. I really hope we have law inforcement up here for the rest of the season to ticket these fools. Have a good weekend sell lots of beefs, and we will see you back on the trails on Monday. Thanks MIKE
