Construction on the drivers courses officially starts tomorrow. We still have a foot and a half of snow on parts of Chadville yet. Weather just hasnt been in our favor so far this year. The stocker trail will be 90% new this year, and airing down will be highly recommended. We are adding a couple new features to the intermediate section so no one should get bored there.

We had huge plans for Chadville again this year, but Jeff Ellens the owner of Ellens corners died in a snowmobile accident this winter and we were unsure of the future of the Jeep Blessing at that time and have postponed our big buildup in Chadville until next year.

With Kim Ellens permission we have dedicated this years blessing to Jeff, so I ask you to come and show your support to her and her family as this event wouldn't even be possible in it's present form without all that Jeff has done for the Cadillac Jeepers. How many gas stations will let you pore 7 loads of cement in their back yard and then invite everyone to play on it? None I suspect.

RIP Jeff You will be missed!

Go to Twisted Trails it is 10miles north west of the Blessing.

They are in Harrison, 10 miles north of Clare,1 mile west of 127

I've been to the blessing a bunch before but I've only ever ran the intermitiate course never chadville. For those of you who have ran Chadville, do you think the rock garden would give me trouble in a YJ with one locker (rear) and 35s? Thinking of trying it this year...

I am pretty sure they recommend 2 lockers and a winch for Chadville.

I know my buddy made it up the concrete ditch thinggy in his TJ fully locked on 35's

Throw a front locker in the Jeep!
