Snowmobiling in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula

Trail Report Map
February 15, 2019 – 12:30 am update: Snowmobile trails throughout Northern Lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula are in great condition heading into the big three-day weekend. The base in the Upper Peninsula is extremely strong and there is also plenty of snow in the snow belts of Northern Lower Michigan. There will likely be lots of traffic, so getting out early in the weekend and staying as long as you can will help you get some rides in with less traffic on the trails.

Some snow in the forecast for early Friday and then some light snow during the weekend. The highs are expected to be in the teens and 20s and the lows in the teens and single digits, so the trails should hold up well and groomers should be able to get out periodically during the weekend and try to keep the trails in decent shape.

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.)

MUNISING AREA UPDATE - Steve took the groomer to find the trail again after the blow. Trail was gone in many areas so expect bumps and narrow spots on the trail as it will take a few grooms to get it back in shape again. The soft snow and high traffic makes it difficult to keep the trail flat. Ride right and stay safe. ... #snowphotosSteve took the groomer to find the trail again after the blow.

ONTONAGON AREA UPDATE via North Country Snowmobile Club UP - Trail Update: Well, we groomed everything last except Trail 12 between Ontonagon and Greenland. It's gonna take a couple days of traffic to pound down this fluffy snow and get a good track to hold again. There is so much snow in The Porkies that Mac drove off the edge of the trail and got stuck 5 times and had to back up to get out. There were 6-foot drifts along the way! ... #snowphotosTrail Update: Well, we groomed everything last except Trail 12 between Ontonagon and Greenland.

Went north on trails 8, 888 & 88. Trails are looking good. Needed a lot of work tonight. Had to clear a few trees off the trail.

WARNING: there is a fallen tree on trail 88 just after you leave Adam's trail heading to M-77. Pushed it off the trail as far as I could but I needed a saw to cut it and I didn't have a working saw so it's still half on the trail. It is passable but you need to watch out.

Groomer Kevin.
