Snowmobiling in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula

Trail Report Map
March 30, 2019 – 2:45 pm update: Best places for riding in for the last weekend of riding on official snowmobile trails will be in the snow belts of the Eastern U.P. – Newberry to Grand Marais to Munising – and parts of the Western U.P. and the Keweenaw Peninsula. Still snow in Northern Lower Michigan, however we have no reports of grooming for the weekend.

Official snowmobile trails close at the end of the day on Sunday. You can still ride on trails on public lands and on two-tracks and other secondary roads. Likely to be snow on the ground for a week or two (or more) into April, especially in the snow belts of the Upper Peninsula. Please DO NOT TRESPASS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY or ignored gates closing off snowmobile trails. Have a great final weekend of the season.

Here’s the Snow Depth Map to give you an idea of the areas with the best snow in the U.P. and Northern Lower Michigan. (A lot of deep snow out there.)

Happy Friday, all!! Thank you to club member Matt Rodgers for taking care of some windfalls this week. Fall storm season has hit, expect downed trees and ride prepared with a saw. Help our 100% all-volunteer club and if you see it down, cut and move off the trail. Send us pictures, location and how much time you spent so we can record on our trail log. #thankyou #dogoodfeelgood #trailworkseason ... See MoreSee Less

As we get closer to the start of snowmobile season we are still looking for responsible groomer operators to help maintain our trails. As you know, everyone appreciates a smooth trail to ride on. If you or anyone you know is interested PLEASE LET US KNOW! Experience is good but we are also more than happy to teach you even if you’ve never done it before. All grooming is done late evening and throughout the night. If you are willing to learn and want to give it a try don’t hesitate to reach out to us! ... See MoreSee Less

Wow. The past 24 hours our small crew of selfless volunteers kicked some serious butt! We got the rear tracks changed out on our New Holland groomer replacing worn components and performing inspection, the project lasted from 3pm yesterday to almost midnight last night (still not done). Then at the crack of dawn today we got our gravel drag brought to our neighbors North Country Welding in Bessemer, MI for substantial refurbishment. This baby is going to keep on keeping your trails studder bump free, but costing several thousands of club funds to refurbish! Prior to the track changing Greg H. got several more coats of sealer on our soon to be dedicated picnic tables at Bald mountain and The Gorge as well as working on our new floor fan system. Thank you Justin from Corullo forest products, VP Jerry, groomerman Dan, Charlie B, Rob from Lulich Implement, Inc. and all our sponsors. We are 100% all volunteer ALL of our donations go to executing big tasks like these. We don't have everything we need to do the big work we're doing, but we have the will. Won't you join us and help make our community motorized trails the economic powerhouse in the summer like they are in the winter? ... See MoreSee Less
