REALLY GOOD TRAILS BUT SNOW NEEDED
Overall trail conditions are very good. Grooming operations were getting very good results last night. We really need snow to keep them hanging on. Snow is forecast just about every day for the next week but no measurable amounts yet. Dirty snow near Christmas and 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.
Our Pisten Bully started having serious electrical issues last night. Fortunately Operator Chris was able to limp it back to the groomer building in Shingleton. Scheduled to be looked at this morning so please wish us luck with finding the issue. We really can’t afford to be down to one machine with the back-up Bully already being used by Trenary Northern Trails. 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 CR440, Trail 419, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur

Today’s Forecast: Chance of Snow, High 19ºF, Winds NE 15 mph with 20 mph gusts
Currently: Cloudy, 22ºF, Winds N 24 with 35 mph gusts
