2018-3-7, 7:30 AM EST, Wednesday


Overall trail conditions are very good with a flat base that is holding up great. 4 inches of new snow (and still falling) has really helped improve grooming results. See details below for the few small areas that are in Fair condition. The current forecast is calling for snow through Friday with below freezing temperatures through the weekend. Keep snow dancing so we get another 4 or 5″ of snow over the next few days.

What do you do when you see a groomer coming towards you? PULL OFF AND LET IT PASS. We will be grooming during the day and there can be a groomer around that next corner. Watch for groomers when cresting hills or on blind corners. Some of our narrow sections of trail in the hills leave no option other than the snowmobiler turn around and find a spot to pull off. Cooperation is greatly appreciated by the operators – RIDE SAFE!

GROOMING OPERATIONS: Night time grooming will continue with daytime grooming currently on hold. We may start daytime grooming without notice so please ride cautiously when rounding corners or cresting hills. Trail 419 from Wetmore to Christmas is currently on hold with grooming. There are steep, icy hills at each end and we can’t risk getting a groomer stuck in there. If we get the forecast snow we may have a run at it Thursday or Friday night.

Trail 8 East – Good
Trail 8 West – Good
Trail 7 South – Good – (Caution: 1/2 mile south of the “dog leg” turn at Doe Lake Road a depression from an underlying tree root keeps returning so ride smart)
Trail 7 North – Good – Fair for a two mile stretch near Christmas with icy corners and little snow to work with.
Trail 419W (Munising-Christmas) – Fair, a few water holes along the sides of the wet area and pockets (low spots) near the crest of hills so ride with caution. Grooming currently on hold here due to icy hills so moguls have developed. Will be attempting a groom Friday night.
Trail 422 (Miners Castle) – Good – watch for tire ruts on Miners Castle Road and logging from H58 North 1/2 mile. The Logging area has been dozed right down so ride with caution. The two mile H-58 section of this trail also has little snow in the guard rail sections (lets hope we get the re-route bridge soon).
Trail 419E (to Trail 8) – Good.
Trail 419 (Wetmore-Munising) – Poor. Very rough,  icy and dirty behind Road Commission. Fair sections have dirty snow from adjacent road plowing. Ride responsibly along M-28, stay on trail and yield to traffic turning in and out of private drives. Grooming currently on hold here.
Trail Wetmore-28 SPUR to Trail 422 – Good.  Use caution along the curve of M-28 as the trail narrows along a steep bank.


STAY ON THE TRAILS around Wetmore and Munising. We don’t want injuries or to lose the trail segments and there are many hidden creeks and hazards.

1/ Approximately 1 mile West of Trail 7 South there is a slight ridge in the trail from a cross road that gets amplified as the day progresses, RIDE WITH CAUTION.

1/ Approximately 1/2 mile South of Doe lake Road there is a slight natural ridge in the trail that gets amplified as the day progresses, RIDE WITH CAUTION.

CAUTION FOR TRAIL 419 (Munising – Christmas)
1/ Standing and flowing water creating soft spots in wet areas of the hills closer to Munising. Stay on the trail and watch for a few small water holes along the edges. There are also a few pockets (low spots) in the trail near the crest of hills from underlying springs. We try to keep them filled but with little new snow they keep returning. RIDE WITH CAUTION.

CAUTION FOR TRAIL 422 (Miners Castle)
1/ Cars are reported running out Trail 422 to Miners Castle so ride with caution, sometimes tire ruts in the snow, RIDE WITH CAUTION.
2/ Logging has started from H58 North 1/2 mile and dozed down deep so ride with caution.

CURRENT WEATHER: 21 degrees F, 12 mph N Winds, Lake Effect Snow w/ Winter Weather Advisory through tonight.
Past 24 hour snowfall: 4″ South, 4″ North (approximate)
