  • With lack of snow, region turns to ORVing

    Feb 8, 2024

    By P.J. GLISSON [email protected] A lack of snow has inspired officials in the tri-county area to allow ORV riding in February. The unusual action has been inspired by fewer than 3 feet of snow during this season — a measly allotment that has allowed trail bases to melt in the face of extended warm spells. Iron and Ontonagon counties have issued formal statements in the past week. “We’re doing the same here,” said Jerry Nezworski, president and trail boss of the Gogebic Range Snowmobile Authority. “Unfortunately, there’s no...
