Northern Michigan Snowmobile

Snowmobiling in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula

Trail Report Map
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.

Desperation is what this trip was, thankfully it was really cold that night so the dirt had frost on it. 1997 Alanson Michigan. We got some looks when we rode through town I can tell you that. Good news was once we got north and into the thicker woods we found enough to ride on. Polaris Snowmobiles

HARBOR SPRINGS UPDATE via Harbor Springs Snowmobile Club - Well today is the day, we have closed all the gates on the snowmobile trails. We didn’t have much of a snowmobile season this year so let’s hope next year really makes up for it! We hope that each and everyone of you are staying safe and healthy out there. We would like to let everyone know that our meetings are canceled until further notice. We also will not be doing any fundraisers for the club this year as we want to encourage everyone to go out and support the local businesses that always support us (once the stay at home order is lifted). We really couldn’t do what we do without them and they are going to need our support now more than ever. ... See MoreSee Less

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports - Today marks the “official end” of the 2019/20 season. Trails officially close March 31st.

I have to say that even with the early season HEAVY snow storms delaying the opening of trails in some areas, the Christmas to New Years rain and then snow storm, limited snow in February and March and now of course the virus wrecking havoc and devastation on the world.....it was STILL a good season! I always say ANY day riding is better than a day at work or home!

Adam Garvey (a local to the Keweenaw) enjoyed a last trail ride and shared his good, bad and ugly photos with us!

Thanks for sharing, Adam, along with ALL of you that shared photos during the season and trail conditions reports - It’s awesome to have so many people willing to share their riding experiences!

Huge thanks again to the Groomer Operators, Trail Boss, Keweenaw Snowmobile Club and Volunteers that make each season great!

Stay safe and stay healthy! #snowphotos

First ride on my brand new Polaris Snowmobiles 2003 Pro X 600. To this day it was my favorite trail sled of all time, the harder you rode it the better it handled. Looking at a 2002.5 right now but having trouble pulling the trigger to store it. Picture was taken just outside the Starvation Lake park and ride off of M-72 in Michigan.

I had a 2001 pro x 600....loved it!! Currently on a dragon 700 that I've owned for 12 years...been super reliable...7500 on it currently and never been apart!!

Still riding my old Polaris 2000 Indy. Stuck $900 parts in it last year for all new shocks, bushings and bearings - like new again!. Rode all my buddies new ones, just couldn't justify $9000 for a marginally better ride and one helluva lot colder one

I had an 02 that I rode for 5 years without any issues other than general maintenance. Great sled in the tight trails.

2 grand and she’s yours 2000 original miles mint condition

Loved my 02 X Edge it was a great sled. We were at Big Bay in 02.
