March 15, 2018 – 2:45 pm update: Trails are still in good shape in the snow belts of the UPPER PENINSULA and there should be fair to good riding this weekend in the hearts of the snow belts. Riding in and out of towns is getting tougher and will get tougher this weekend with no snow in the forecast and highs in the 30s. The best riding this weekend will likely be the Lake Superior snow belt that runs from Paradise to Newberry to Grand Marais to Munising. That area is picking up lake effect snow today (Thursday) with clouds in the forecast for Friday. There should be good rides to be had in the Western U.P. The base is solid from Lake Gogebic north to the Porcupine Mountains and up through the Keweenaw Peninsula.
Limited snow in the long-term forecast so this weekend may be the last weekend with really good conditions. Good news is that there is no big warm up in the forecast so you should be able to find limited “spring-conditions” riding next weekend in parts of the U.P.
Still opportunities for limited riding in NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN on generally ungroomed trails for the rest of the week. Highs in the 30s and sunshine will make any riding later in the weekend more difficult.
