Greetings from the Trestle Inn, where the burgers are tastey and the trails are smooth and snow covered.
That’s right, we said snow covered. A storm earlier this week dumped about a half-foot up here north of the Two Harbors area, brightening the trails, painting the trees and making the whole scene much more positive for snowmobilers like us.
Me and Greg Boeder from Power Products Marketing left the Twin Cities at 5 a.m. this morning and were unloading sleds at Two Harbors before 9 a.m. By 11:45 a.m. we were up here at the Trestle Inn, a hotspot for snowmobilers who like to run the North Shore State Trail and the Tomahawk State Trail.
The trails are surprisingly good. The folks at the Holiday Station in Two Harbors said the ground was brown last weekend, but the snow on Monday allowed the groomers to get out. Now, the forecast is calling for 10-plus inches on Sunday — that’s right snowmobilers, don’t give up on the season yet! Closer to Two Harbors the trail cover was thin but it was definitely white. The snow depth picked up a little bit near Finland, and the trail got a bit rougher — not rough, necessarily, just interesting.
Well, our lunch is done, and it’s time to get back on the trail. Enjoy your Thursday, and make plans to get out riding in your area, if you can! See a photo of our sleds on our Facebook page.
