More Beautiful Snow

Last night the mid Gunflint Trail area received eight inches of new snow. On the ground there is now twenty-eight inches of snow. Groomer are out today working on the trails. Because of the depth of the snow-fall two snowmobiles are required.- one snowmobile to compact the snow  followed by another snowmobile tracking. Hope to have all the trails opened and tracked by late tomorrow.
