WINTER STORM AND STILL GROOMING!

Overall trail conditions are good to very good with an average of 4 inches of fresh snow that fell after a heavy rain yesterday. We still have a very good base overall with great late season riding conditions. Near the towns we have thin snow/bare roads and dirty/icy snow on trails running along the roadways though the Wetmore Spur along M-28 is very good. Trail 419 between Munising and Wetmore is un-groomable and thin with icy corners and hill tops. Check Fuel and Food stops before heading out. Enjoy the Trails and Ride Safe!
