TWO MACHINES AND SNOW
Overall trail conditions are good to very good. The Bully is back grooming the trails and made it’s first recovery pass on Trail 419 headed back to staging in Christmas. Thanks Al from Pisten Bully for the quick planetary replacement and Operator Quest for helping him out. It will take a few days here but with both machines running all trails are expected to be back in great shape by the weekend. An inch or two of fresh snow is forecast for tonight with more over the next few days. Dog Sled Races are this weekend so watch for signs like shown in the gallery, slow down in those areas and give right-of-way to the teams racing. We also have the Munising Ice Fest this weekend which will have increased traffic and vehicles out by Miners Castle. Keep the cold weather snow dancing going, Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
