LIGHT SNOW AND GOOD RIDING
Overall trail conditions are good to very good. An inch or two of fresh snow has helped with grooming conditions with a great base but trails are still a bit sugary. More light snow forecast with single digit night time temperatures. This won’t change grooming results much but we will continue to do our best. 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:
Trail 7 from Christmas to CR440, Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton west to Trail 417, Trail 417, Trail 418, Trail 419, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur.
