Sault Ste. Marie Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report

TRAIL REPORT

Sualt Ste. Marie Snowmobile Association

1/20/2019
 

Not all trails are groomed every day but we groom portions everyday and some require then others.  All trails are in good condition and improve with each groom as the base gets better packed.

There is now a plowed parking area at the beginning of trail #8 under the International Bridge, which now has an all season porta John.  Make sure you lock your vehicles and trailers.

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.
