FRESH SNOW HELPING OUT
Overall trail conditions are good with a small amount of fresh snow helping out with grooming. Yesterday we received 3 to 4 inches of snow and trails were setting up good. We still need a good amount of fresh snowfall to have something to work with and tighten up some areas of trail. There are still 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 west of Au Train. The north end of Trail 7 is better but still has “dirty” snow along with much of Trail 419 toward Munising. Please ride responsible making sure everyone arrives at your next destination.

Keep snow dancing – Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton to Trail 7 North, Trail 7 North and South to Buckhorn Road, Trail 419, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur

Today’s Forecast: Patchy Blowing Snow, High 32ºF, Winds NW 15 to 20 mph with 35 mph gusts
Currently: Cloudy, 28ºF, Winds Variable 6 mph
