Sault Ste. Marie Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report

TRAIL REPORT

Sualt Ste. Marie Snowmobile Association

3/1/2020
 

 Happy March! We received at least a foot of new snow this week. Groomers are reporting that all trails are in good to excellent condition! All trails are groomed at least 5 times per week. High temperatures this week are forecasted to be in the mid to upper 30s and lows are forecasted to be in the 20s. Still lots of great riding to be had. Ride safe!

 

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

 

-We now have a marked trail going to Chippewa Motors.  It starts once you come out of the woods east of M-129 off #449.  It comes into their parking lot from behind if you need parts or service.

-City curfew is from 1 am – 6 am. Remember most City streets are open to traffic 20 mph, stop at all intersections, and ride on the right hand side of street not on side walks. Watch for closed streets that are posted, mainly around the hospital, university, and state trunk lines.

-When the trail is running along roads make sure you go with the flow of traffic on the right side of the road.

-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.

-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!!!!!!
