FRESH SNOW – NICE RIDING CONDITIONS
Overall trail conditions are very good with exception of parts of Trail 419. A little fresh snow last night helped trails groom nice but are not setting a hard ribbon. We are still down a machine with Trenary Northern Trails helping us on the West end. Part of Trail 419 is inaccessible by our running groomer and will not be groomed until the Bully is operational. Our typical grooming schedule is slightly altered but working together with TNT we are able to keep on track – almost. We will continue to groom and do our best with what we have. The forecast is calling for a few more inches of snow so lets keep the cold weather snow dancing going and hope for more. Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: (currently operating with only 1 machine)
Trail 7 from Christmas to Buckhorn Road, Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton west to Trail 417, Trail 418, Trail 419 from Trail 8 to Wetmore.

Forecast: Snow, 1 inch accumulation, High 25ºF, Winds SW 5 mph
Currently: Cloudy, 11ºF, Winds SE 5

ROUGH TRAIL suggested route

- Trail 419 from Wetmore west to the West Bay Spur Intersection cannot be groomed until we have the Bully running. Conditions are poor. If staying in Munising we suggest taking Trail 419 toward Wetmore for a much shorter route to access the trails.

Light new snow, soft but flat with a good base, groomed Saturday night from Trail 8 to Wetmore. Soft snow with high traffic so expected to get choppy between grooming runs.
