March 25, 2020 – 12:35 am update: It’s official. Grooming is over for the 2019/2020 snowmobile season in Michigan due to the necessity of curtailing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The last runs in the Keweenaw and the Eastern U.P. were done early this week, so the trails will be nice for a little while, but the warmer weather this week will make them rougher and rougher each day. Trails in the Upper Peninsula still have a strong base with plenty of snow in the Keweenaw Peninsula and the Eastern U.P. snow belts from Munising to Grand Marais to Newberry and most of the way to Sault Ste. Marie.
If you decide to ride, check beforehand to make sure your fuel stops are still open. Some restaurants are still offering take-out service, so call ahead and plan accordingly. Please practice “social distancing” during your trip. If you are visiting an area where you don’t live, please “quarantine” yourself away from the local population. Plenty of time to make new friends later this summer or next winter.
Official snowmobile trails close on March 31, 2020.
Have a great week and a great spring, summer and fall! We’ll see you when all the craziness is over.
Here’s the Snow Depth Map to help you find regions with the most snow.
