Northern Michigan Snowmobile

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.)

Great job guys ! Thank you

Thank you for all the hard work.

More trails. I love it. Good to see permit money being used for our trails.

Unreal the amount of effort for a 20’ section of trail. What is the cost to this and how can we help donate?

Some of the COST that people don't realize when purchasing a trial permit.
