Good overall conditions

Light snowfall

1 general warning

2 trail warnings

FLAT BASE RE-ESTABLISHED

Overall trail conditions are good. Groomer Operators were able to get the soft wet snow shaped in and set flat over the last few days. We still need a good snowfall to further improve trail conditions and keep the current snow from getting over-processed. There are a few thin areas on Trail 419 near Munising and water flowing in sections of Trail 418 just east and west of Au Train. Other than that pretty nice riding conditions. There were a few rider incidents over the holidays on Trail 419 due to snow, terrain and ice conditions, please slow down. Make sure everyone arrives at your next destination and don’t let others push or pull you beyond your riding abilities.

Do a cold weather snow dance – Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

WARNING - TRAIL 419

- We have received reports of two separate injury incidents in different parts of Trail 419. For 2 miles from Munising heading toward Christmas, underlying rough terrain is creating bumpy conditions. Combing this with a thin base, little fresh snow and ice, corners are challenging. PLEASE SLOW DOWN and RIDE WITH CAUTION in that area.
