Antrim County - Conditions: N/A Updated: 03 / 23 By: Jordan Valley Trails Council
Trail Report: This picture says it all, the sun has set on our grooming season. Trails are still 100% rideable and covered with either ice or snow besides 131 which is ice covered but as it warms up beware of slushy spots. Plenty of riding to be done but there just isnt enough snow to warrant us running the groomers. Both groomer operators today had the same opinion of the trails and the conditions of them. We greatly appreciate the riders that have come and enjoyed our trails and shared their experience with us as well everyone that donated to our groomer drivers, gave them a thumbs up or stoped and gave them snacks. Most of all thank you to all our volunteers that make this program happen, we couldnt do it without them!

Grooming has been on hold this week due to rain and warmer temperatures but the trail still has a good base in most places. You may encounter some icy patches when temperatures are low or wet patches when it warms up. Trails are open through March 31st and we will keep you updated as reports come in to us. <> Sledheads of Frederic - 03/23 FREDERIC / GAYLORD AREA UPDATE via Sledheads of Frederic - It was ten degrees and frosty everywhere this morning when I got here, its now about 11 and up to 24 degrees. Things are still hard and crunchy. I never saw any sleds yesterday but one person that was in told me he had seen one down the street from here. I would expect a few to be out there today. Riding will be easier as the snow gets softer later in the day. Had a few trailers in yesterday that were on their way to the u.p.. and so far only a couple people in this morning. I am still going to stick it out in here today and tommorow till at least five. The end is getting closer but I still have hopes for another storm. Mohawk John was in yesterday to get his Polar Vortex shirt and his pic is below. All of the orders have been picked up except for two and I dont have their phone number but if you are Kevin or Justin Kirkpatrick or know them have them call me.Couple other pics below I just took outside and as you can see its still nice and white out there. I did read yesterday that they are going to send the ice breaker thru between St Ignace and Mackinaw island starting monday morning so that will be done. I talked to many people that made the trip across the ice bridge to Mackinac Island this winter. I would bet this was the busiest winter the island has had in a long time. There is a five dollar permit fee to ride your sled on the island and this year they had someone there collecting as you came across. Well worth the five bucks to say you got to ride your sled there. They said the sooner they get the ice broken up thru there the sooner it will melt so the ferries can start running again. Thanks for checking in. Pete <> --- Complete Report --- More Report Links

These conditions are to continue thru the day into tomorrow. Groomers have been working our trails since last Fri. Trail 13 loop is a humungous water hole from trucks & ATV’s and even with these polar temps will take awhile to freeze deep enough to hold groomer but it’s about to the place where snowmobilers will be able to go over it and that will help get it in good shape.

Indian River - Conditions: N/A Updated: 01 / 29 By: Indian River
Trail Report: No sooner than last nights Winter Storm Warning expired at 7 pm we were hit with another. This warning began at 4 am and lasts until THURSDAY at noon. Looks like were going to get 5-10″ of new snow (3-6″ today & 2-4″ tomorrow) plus 25-35 mph winds to blow it all around. We havent recovered from yesterdays storm that dumped a good 5″ and created large drifts. Several local banks and government offices closed around noon and the roads were quiet. The most noise we heard was from a few snowmobiles buzzing around. Even that traffic was light, though; probably due to the weekend ending and extremely cold wind chills. Our guys groomed again last night and report excellent conditions everywhere. Theres no bad riding out there today, sledheads. Your only obstacle this week will be cold and occasional reduced visibility. Currently were at -6 and might reach a high of 4 degrees. Even worse will be wind chills dipping as low as -30, which means frostbite in less than 30 minutes. Be very prepared when you venture out (cell phone, water, full tank of gas, ride with a buddy). This isnt the time to get stranded on the trail. Our local roads are snow-covered and slippery. All local schools are closed again today and emergency vehicles have their hands full with vehicle traffic. Snowbanks are even higher than previously so slow down at road crossings. <> Area Reports: The Thirsty Sturgeon on Facebook >>>> Sturgeon Valley Campground on Facebook >>>> Indian River Snowmobile Grooming Club Condition Report >>>> <> --- Complete Report

Keweenaw Peninsula - Conditions: Good Updated: 03 / 26 By:
Trail Report: KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports​ - The forecast includes a chance for light rain in the Keweenaw and warmer temps again for a few days. Trails are still holding up well for late season riding, however getting in and out of any towns become increasingly more difficult as the roads are bare. It is very difficult to pass through Houghton/Hancock. Jay Piotrowski and family spent the day riding trails in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula and this is the report he gave of the trails they were on...... Riding was great today only bad spot was 134 spur to High Rock. Looks like groomer may have gotten stuck up at high rock last time they groomed. Other than that 134 was flat and fast. 3 from Vansville to Copper was great ....there was still enough snow and water in Copper Harbor for my scratchers to throw and keep me cool getting into town. 124 was great. Around 7pm trails were getting pretty loose. Saw a groomer crossing 41 southbound in Ahmeek. Fingers crossed rain doesnt hit hard and temps stay down. Thanks Jay for taking the time to update us with a trail report. If anyone else is out riding the area please feel free to share a report on conditions and/or photos! <> Conditions as of March 25, 2019: Most snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are in spring condition. The edges on the trails are soft, please use caution. Trail 122 has several flooded areas and will be closed for the rest of the season. The west and east Lac La Belle Loops (132) will not be groomed, due to some icy stretches on hills that have made it unsafe to operate a groomer on. Those trails are still open to snowmobile traffic. As the season works towards a close, the grooming operations will be adjusted on a daily basis to accommodate the safety of our groomer operators, so riders should expect varying conditions on the trails. Trail 120 and 121 that goes around Freda is closed for the season and will not be reopened, as well as Trail 3 from Dollar Bay to Lake Linden. You can still get to Dollar Bay by way of Hancock and to Lake Linden by way of Calumet. Trail 133 is closed for the season for logging. Please stay on the trails, STAY OFF THE ICE, respect private property, do not drink and drive, and above all else, drive safely. The signs on the trails are there for riders safety so please DO NOT remove or destroy them.

Trail Report: Yesterday we had blizzard conditions followed by brief light rain followed by more snow. We measured 22" (deeper snow north) of dense snow on the ground this morning. On and off trail people are reporting "awesome" conditions and "the best we've seen." We have heard this from multiple groups heading in all directions. This morning, we are seeing additional accumulating snow and temps will remain cold through the weekend. We are not making daily updates to the trail report unless there is a change in condition. I will not update trail conditions over the weekend since temps will remain steady and trails are perfect. Trail conditions will change minute by minute, trail by trail, based on the amount of traffic since the trail was last groomed. Groomers are out doing their thing and conditions are favorable for them, as well. I am thankful for all of the dedication these people put into our trail systems. Please remember that due to the length of our trails it takes 12-16 hours to groom one way! 1/8/17 Boy! I really don't know what to tell you other than it hasn't stopped snowing. We have had accumulation every day for 5 days and measured two feet on the ground today. Riders have been all smiles, extending stays and reporting awesome conditions on and off trail. There are still come concerns regarding low lying areas to the south, so please follow groomer reports in regards to swamp/south trails. This is a low traffic period (prior to MLK weekend) and trails are beautiful. Things typically pick up this coming weekend and remain busy until the end of the season. You never know what the future will bring, but my hope is this pattern of beautiful lake effect will continue. Local clubs (Grand Marais sno trails, Seney, Paradise Area Night Riders and Taqhamamenon Area Snowmobile Assoc) are reporting trail closures, yellow flags or a section of trail that is closed. Please educate yourselves before you ride and ride safely. *** Trail report ends here *** Read below for vacancy :) We are receiving a lot of calls for the upcoming weekends. To save on time and phone calls- This week we have openings through Friday night, but no vacancy Saturday or Sunday 1/14 or 15. Openings resume Monday-Thursday with no vacancy 1/20 or 21.

We never really had a solid thaw or major break down. There still is alot of snow in the woods but the trails are officially closed. You cannot ride on any state land trails like the Falls trail but you could still get some miles in on side trails and the unplowed roads like around the Point. I want to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to Brandon Krupski, new owner of the Silver Creek Bar for taking care of us groomer drivers this year. I hope he realizes how much we appreciate him for feeding us....for free...when we are out grooming for 8+ hours!!!! Also to Lark Ludlow, owner of the Falls brewery for doing the same. THANK YOU!!!!!!! From all of us!!!!! This spring our club WILL get organized and we WILL get a membership going. We WILL organize some brushing parties and a few other things. We finally have some shirts and hats in to order. They look pretty cool. Check them out on our FB page. OK, with a sad face, I will say......till next season!!!!! Hope you all have a great summer. Check back every now and again and we`ll post updates on fall brushing. We could use the help!!!

St. Ignace - Conditions: Good Updated: 01 / 31 By: Straits Area Snowmobile Club
Trail Report: Happy I-500 Super bowl weekend to you! Trails are going to be super busy out there, so please be courteous and be careful. In case you have been under a rock (or in Florida) we have gotten hammered with bitter cold temps and a ton of new snow. We easily have 12in more base today then a week ago. Problem is this base as been a crappy consistency and it just doesnt pack that well. All we can do is run and pack it is until it warms up a little. All of the trails are just about perfect. We still need to widen the bigger ones out a bit, but overall I would say we are in excellent condition. Groomer Wayne ran yesterday and commented that he has never seen the RR grade out of town so flat and in good shape. I fully expect that condition to deteriorate with the traffic this weekend. We are still working about 6in of semi-loose snow into the base and it moves around more then are are used to, so please expect and be careful as the trails loosen up through the day. We are running groomers every evening, except Sunday as it will be warm (and super bowl). Yes warm, remember what that is? Forecast is calling for warm temps and light rain on Sunday and Monday. That is just fine, it isnt gonna hurt the trails, although if you have a choice, I will ask that you stay off our trails on Monday. We will groom them when they are soft, they will pack down and we will be in our normal super-highway status when it cools down on Tuesday. In the meantime enjoy the epic powder out there pushing 2ft in the woods for sure. Watch for your fellow riders, and now a couple public service announcements. <> --- Complete Report
