DECENT EARLY SEASON TRAILS

Overall trail conditions are good. Not much change since Groomer Operators were able to recover our flat base. 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 west of Au Train on Trail 418. We also have water flowing in sections of Trail 418 just east and west of Au Train. It was warm yesterday but nice riding conditions held on. Please ride responsible making sure everyone arrives at your next destination.

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

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton to Trail 417, Trail 7 North and South to CR440, Trails 417, 418 and 422

Today’s Forecast: Flurries, High 30ºF, Winds NW 10 mph
Currently: Light Drizzle, 31ºF, Winds W 5 mph

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.
