PERFECT TRAIL SETTING BUT…….
Overall trail conditions are very good. Grooming operations were getting perfect results with our Dubie Groomers setting a very hard trail last night. The down side is today’s forecast calling for light snow changing to rain this afternoon. Hopefully it does not soften up the trails too much. Cold temperatures and heavy snow forecast for the weekend, keep snow dancing so that holds true. There are still a few thin areas on Trail 419 near Munising and water flowing on Trail 418 about 2.5 miles west of Au Train near the Brownstone intersection. Please ride responsible making sure everyone arrives at your next destination.

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: Snow changing to Rain, less than 1/2 inch of snow, High 35ºF, Winds S 20 mph with 35 mph gusts
Currently: Cloudy, 20ºF, Winds S 15 mph with 28 mph gusts
