BLIZZARD CONDITIONS COMING TO A CLOSE!
  Overall trail conditions are very good to excellent but hidden with the bitter cold, blowing, drifting snow from this recent blizzard. -11 degrees right now. Highway M-28 is OPEN between Munising and Marquette. We attempted a run late yesterday but conditions were just to risky for our operators so all runs were cancelled. Grooming operations are starting back up this morning, be alert and watch for them restoring the trail system.
Yesterday we did get the brush guard installed on the New Groomer with the hitch expected to arrive today.
If venturing out today, expect drifting conditions across the trail system, be prepared and have a buddy riding with you.

Past 24 hour Grooming runs:
Grooming Operations are starting back up this morning. Please note the assigned rating for trail segments listed below is based on the last grooming run for each.
