TRAILS LOOKING GOOD!

No new snow, lighter traffic and a trail system in overall good condition, fair to poor in towns and near roadways. There are some icy corners and gravel mix snow in the outlying areas so ride with caution. Groomer Operators were again getting really good results last night. We sent the Pisten Bully through Trail 419 to clean-up and set the cut lines last night. We also staged our smaller John Deere in Munising so it will be ready to primarily maintain Trail 419. Other than that we have a snow storm coming tomorrow so lets hope for the needed 4 to 8 inches of snow being forecast. Ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
