St. Ignace Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report


3/11/2019 - Straits Area Snowmobile Club

We have tons of snow, so lets pile some more on top of that! The little storm that went through Saturday-Sunday was supposed to drop like 3in for Iggy, and we got more like 6in and 8in out in the core of the system by the time it was done. And apparently with winds drifted things in overnight too. I didn't think it was too bad when I went to bed, but that pics of the drifts I got back was pretty decent on Sunday - more than I expected for sure. Snow was a packy type very good trail building snow, and basically the first that we have had all season that should pack in well. I expect trails to all be in excellent shape this morning, and over the next few days. After that, it is going to get dicy.

Forecast for Thursday right now is almost 50d, and they are talking a rain storm Wed-Thrus. Even though the Rest of March is forecasted to be slightly below normal, a more general warming trend is on its way and it looks like the daytime temps are finally going to be breaking the freezing mark during daylight for the foreseeable future. Trails will held up for a LONG time as we have 30in or more of base out there. Don't fear, just book some more weekends, and crank up some more milage!

A big thank you to David from Trout Lake, along with Matt and Christy from Bay City who took it upon themselves to remove the Round Lake Rd tree yesterday. Things like that help out more than you know.

On Saturday I was cleaning up a couple of driveways just outside of Iggy with my backhoe. I got stuck plowing and blew a hydro line. Thanks to the downstate couple that took the time to stop and check on me to see if I needed any help. Boo to the group of 8 mountain sleds that seemed to think that the only way you can cross a driveway is pinned to the handlebar and roost everything in sight.

Little trail candy from Moran fields yesterday and last night. Chris is estimating there is 5 FEET of trail base in some areas out there. Those drifts were impressive for the little storm!
