Northern Michigan Snowmobile

Snowmobiling in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula

Snow Resources: Radar Loop | Snow Depth Map | Winter Storm Warning Map

January 24, 2023 – 1:00 pm update: – Looks like winter is gonna stick around at least for another week. Cold temps and some snow in the forecast this week. Trails conditions should be generally good for the snow belts of the Upper Peninsula this week and going into the weekend.

Trails in Northern Lower Michigan still need more snow. You should be able to find some limited riding in the snow belts west and north of Gaylord. Some groomers were out this weekend and if the area picks up more snow this week we may actually see some groomed trails to ride on in Northern Lower Michigan this week.

Keep an eye on John Dee and the John Dee Forecast Graphic for his take on this week’s weather.

MUNISING AREA UPDATE via Alger County SORVA --> TRAIL REPORT, Sunday, January 29, 2023 7:45 a.m.
A LITTLE MORE FRESH SNOW!
Overall Trails are in Good condition with some light, fresh snowfall. One machine is down for a hydraulic system flush. We do have neighboring clubs helping out to cover in the mean time. We still have hazardous water holes on Trail 418 so ride and cross with extreme caution (Map in images showing locations). Signs now mark both locations. Keep a close eye on conditions as you ride and stay right. Stay tuned for updates! DETAILED REPORT HERE: www.algersorva.com/trailreport/01-29-2023/

LAKE GOGEBIC AREA UPDATE via Gogebic Area Grooming --> 1n, 13n were hit tonight and a double groom on 8east to Ewen. It has turned into the Bill Nichols #3 to Houghton... Tons of traffic so we did a late night double to avoid traffic and reset the entire section. With the colder temps hopefully that will help get 8east back under control.. good evening/morning...

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports --> W🤩W! Just W🤩W!
What a trip Greg Schmidt took from Minoqua Wi to Copper Harbor, Michigan.
L👀K at these beautiful photos from a partial blue sky day on Brockway Mountain.
Greg shared the details of his trip with us, “…..here are some pictures from our awesome ride to the Keweenaw! We started our ride in Minocqua, WI and headed up Wednesday, January 26th. Stayed at Hackman’s Hollow in Twin Lakes which was very convenient being right across the street from a restaurant. The views and trail all the way up on trail 3 to Houghton were spectacular! As we got through Houghton we headed up on trail 17/3 on smooth trails in Calumet and then took 134 out to the High Rock trail. Decided to try to head out to High Rock but about a mile into it turned around due to the high moguls. I was surprised by the amount of snow. Prior to heading up the reports I heard was there is no snow going out to High Rock but it sure looked like they had plenty. Anyways back to the report…😁 We headed into Copper Harbor on 134 and that was smooth as silk! We headed into Copper Harbor and then started up Brockway Mountain and man the views were like driving into a Bob Ross painting! Got to the top and took in all the spectacular views! After taking some memory making pictures we headed back down and stopped at another lookout overlooking Copper Harbor and Lake Superior. After getting gas at the Copper Harbor Fuel Stop, we stopped to eat at The Mariner North for lunch which was OUTSTANDING! Heading back we headed down 134 to 3 and took 124 out to Gay. Trail 124 was so good we headed back out that way as well. Once we got back on 3 south to Houghton the trails started to get a little rough but what do you expect after a full day of riding? Topped gas off in Houghton before heading back to Twin Lakes. Made it back to Minocqua Friday afternoon. 530 memorable miles and we will BE BACK! 😁”
What an amazing trip, Greg! Thank you SO much for sharing the many details of your trip and the beautiful photos!!

CADILLAC AREA UPDATE via Coyote Crossing Resort --> • Have gotten many comments today from sledders at Coyote who are pleasantly surprised by how decent the trails are; and they’re glad to be riding!
• Pete’s Friday trail report: Hello- Rode about 34 miles last night around Coyote, Caberfae and Crossroads. I groomed Coyote trail and "cut-off" trail out to Trail 37. I was mainly doing damage control to repair bad/dangerous ruts that came from wheeled vehicles during the thaw. Groomers will go out once and hit most everything today/tonight. Surprisingly there was a small/hard base still intact in most places.. I was not seeing snirt. Things are certainly not great, but with some smoothing out and the 4-6" we got, things are rideable. Some snow tonight is forecasted along with chance of some Lake Effect. THINK SNOW, Ride Right and Be Safe. Pete

Decided to take the chance Friday night and drive the 7 hrs to Cadillac to ride, by-passing negative comments on posts about snow. When choosing to ride we don’t look to FB, we call Annie at Lost Pines Lodge or area businesses. We chose EverGreen resort at the last minute. Saturday morning we went from Evergreen to Coyote Crossing Resort for lunch then over to Lost Pines for a game of pool, drinks and chatting it up to our last stop at the bowling alley. Lol Everywhere was basically dead from last minute cancellation. We had an amazing ride, beautiful day, beautiful pictures and met some new friends at LP. So glad we chose to make the trip and dump some cash into these local businesses. ❄️ Thank you Cadillac for another memorable trip ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

Don’t tell everyone, we don’t want the trails overrun like in other places

Rode Fredric to starvation lake Friday and besides some rough areas it was a good ride for a day trip

The trails are good in the majority of the area we did receive 10" of fresh snow last night. We groomed to the falls last night and got the groomer fixed enough to make the run back from winter haven to the groomer barn. We do still have one groomer down so we will do what we can. Today we are running north to holland lake and 45 to the falls and if everything goes well tonight we will head south to Borgstrum rd after the groomer returns from the falls. Every trail has some logging on it also there are some water holes still open in a few spots so please ride with caution and care! The details are below for specific trail grooming.

Trail 9: We groomed south from winter haven to the groomer barn last night. Good! logging operations are finishing up but county road 422 is still being plowed to finish hauling everything out, so be careful roads are icy.
Trail 498: not done yesterday. Very Good.
Trail 45: The gate is open to the Falls. We are currently grooming out to the falls. There is logging on the trail shortly after you jump on Trail 45 just past the Logging museum off of M-123. There is also be logging about 3 miles North of Skyline Road off to the right. Please use extreme caution in these areas! Both portions are being plowed and could be bumpy or rutted. Very Good to excellent in spots!!
Trial 9/2: We did not groom last due to mechanical issues. Very Good.
Thank you to all the team at the groomers barn who puts in countless hours to keep the system groomed and maintenance on the machines!
