Northern Michigan snowmobile trails in great shape
Midweek snow came down in the northern regions of the Lower Peninsula with blizzard conditions in several areas of the Upper Peninsula.
Trails should be in great shape for weekend riding.
Around the Clare area, considerable snow fell during the week, covering the trails with 1-2 inches of fresh cover. Trails are in excellent condition with snow on the ground registering over a foot. Groomers are out on a daily routine.
The Cadillac area received 3 to 4 inches of fresh snow early Wednesday, improving trail conditions. High winds caused some drifting and knocked some branches across the trails, so use caution.
Also watch for plenty of ice under the fresh snow. Trails should be in great shape by the weekend and for the North American Snow Festival.
Traverse City trails remain in good shape even after some very heavy trail activity this past weekend. Groomers have smoothed the edges and conditions are good for another weekend of great riding.
Lake effect snow has covered trails throughout the Benzie area. Fresh powder prevails, leaving groomers plenty of work to do. Trails will be in excellent shape for weekend riding.
Trails throughout the western region remain in good to very good condition. Trails are in excellent shape in Iron County and grooming is taking place on a daily basis.
In the central portion of the U.P., trails range from fair to excellent. Snowmobilers can expect awesome riding around Grand Marais and the Munising area, where trails are in excellent condition.
The eastern region of the U.P. has good riding available with conditions ranging from good to excellent. Luce County trails are in good shape with a solid snow base measuring up to one foot. Chippewa County trails are in great shape with several in very good condition.
Remember: Watch for groomers; they have the right of way!!!
