Sault Ste. Marie Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report


Sualt Ste. Marie Snowmobile Association

Reported On: December 15th, 2017


    We ran groomer West from Raco on trail #8 Thursday.  That section is not too bad because no water not but still needs snow  we will be running groomer east to Brimley Friday and there are a few water puddles on that portion.  No grooming in town yet lots of water.

    Gates are not open going south or on the Spile dam trail due to low snow and water.

    Follow us on Twitter @sootrails

    February 1 help break Guinness record for longest Snowmobile parade


    We have a new plowed parking area at the beginning of trail #8 under the International Bridge, which now has an all season porta John.


    If you are staying in the Sault please look at our list of supporters on our web page and give them your business.  Please do that in all towns you visit.  The grooming entities are all made up of volunteers who want you to support those who support us!!!!!!


    Remember trail base is the amount of snow between your track and the ground below not the amount of fluff piled up in the woods.  10 inches of snow compresses to less then a inch on the trail.
