Trail Report Map
January 27, 2021 – 5:00 am update: – We are in mid-week mode and the trails are all improving and getting a little better every day. Best trail conditions are still in the Western U.P. and the Keweenaw Peninsula. High temps should stay below 32 degrees and there is some snow in the forecast. Most of the trails should be in fair to good condition going into the weekend.

Trails in the snow belts of the Eastern U.P. also picked up snow over the weekend and groomers have been out working the trails. The base is not as solid in the Eastern U.P. and some areas the base is getting a little bit thin. Grand Marais to Munising seems to have the most snow. Conditions should hold at fair-to-good with some poor sections going into the weekend.

The trails in Northern Lower Michigan picked up some snow over the last week and groomers are out in many areas. Cadillac groomers are reporting good conditions and conditions are fair to good in the snow belts west of Gaylord. Snow is a little thin as you go north around Harbor Springs. No big snow storms in the forecast so conditions should be anywhere from poor to fair to good in Northern Lower Michigan this weekend.

IRONWOOD / WESTERN U.P. UPDATE via Gogebic Range Trail Authority - ORV & Snowmobile Club - All three groomers are out on the trails today after a day and a half of preventative maintenance work. Lots of grease, baths, bogy wheel changes, inspections and wiring repair. Trails rated in good to fair condition. The snirt remains on short sections of our major corridors, especially near town. Lots of starting and stopping creates lots of track spin. We are happy to see southern WI and IL get to grooming this season. It should mean quieter trails up north! Come on up! ... #ironwood #westernup #snowphotosPhoto from 2017 by club President Steve Hamilton.

SENEY AREA UPDATE via Seney Snowmobile Association - We groomed Trail 43 down to Ten Curves Rd we couldn’t groom the ditch on Ten Curves Rd because there’s just not enough snow in the ditch for us to work with yet, North of Ten Curves Rd the trail is in nice shape though. We groomed 43 to the Bear Trap and Petrol Lane to Melstrand and trail 440 last night. We still have some icy corners and snow is thin in a few areas south of Fox River Rd. Trail 440 is in good shape. It’s still a little icy for about 1 mile off M-77. Trail 431 was groomed and that’s in good shape. Still a little wet going though the swamp around town so be careful going through the swamp. Our groomers will be going out every night Monday through Thursday to groom our trail system so watch out for them. We plan to double groom Friday, Saturday and Sunday.... #seney #newberry #snowphotosWe groomed Trail 43 down to Ten Curves Rd we couldn’t groom the ditch on Ten Curves Rd because there’s just not enough snow in the ditch for us to work with yet, North of Ten Curves Rd the trail is in nice shape though.
