SNOW COMING!

A dusting of new snow this morning, still 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 are under a Winter Weather Advisory that just started through 7pm Thursday with a Northeaster coming through. That usually sets up for heavier Lake Effect Snow from Munising West. Lets hope for the higher end of the 3 to 8 inches of snow forecast so we can bump trail conditions up a few notches. Right now there is actually some really good riding to be had considering the limited snow. Ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trail 8 from West Trail 417 intersection East to 7 miles North of Shingleton, Trail 419 from Wetmore South, Trail 7 from Buckhorn Road North to Christmas, Trail 422 to Miners Castle Road, Wetmore Spur.
