SNOW and GREAT LATE SEASON RIDING!

Overall trail conditions are very good to good with great riding conditions. Grooming is providing really good late season results with a great base. We did get about an inch of fresh snow last night and it’s still coming down. Looks like rain forecast for Thursday so grooming may get put on hold for a day or two before the weekend. Forecasts this time of year change by the hour so lets hope for snow instead. Regardless of the weather we have a deep base so trails should be hanging on for awhile. Trails 8, 417, 418, 422 and 7 North and 7 to Buckhorn Road are very good. All other Trails are a bit choppy but not bad considering the weather and break we had in grooming. Near the towns we have bare roads and dirty/icy snow on trails running along the roadways. Trail 419 between Christmas and Munising has moguls on inside corners from the West bay Spur intersection East but is fairly flat elsewhere. Very much rideable just as long as you slow down and pay attention to trail conditions. Trail 419 between Munising and Wetmore has the big hill on the Munising side icy at the top with moguls on the inside corners but all rideable. Keep cold weather snow dancing so we can hang on to the season, Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trails 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton West to Trail 417, Trail 7 South to Buckhorn Road, Trail 7 North, Trail 417, 418 & 422.

Forecast: Snow-Mostly Cloudy, High 38ºF, Winds S 5 to 10 mph
