Frederic / Gaylord Area - Conditions: N/A Updated: 02 / 18 By: Sledheads of Frederic
Trail Report: It's a sunny and dry sunday morning and already 33 degrees. Still very icy and hard out there. There were 3 die hards that I saw over at the Swamp yesterday, I don’t know how they did it but those were the only sleds I saw all day Saturday. I did hear of people riding north and west of here and that there were many sleds up at the settings for the Winterfest. So it sounded like they had a good crowd for their event. I looked for pictures from there but couldn’t find any so once again I have no pics today. My brother went to the Vintage oval track races in Marion yesterday and he said that was pretty good and now that I have said that I remember that he sent me a pic from there so I will post that one below here. Weather outlook for this coming week certainly isn’t looking any better than what we have had. I think everyone better be ready for a ride in the future because at the rate we are going I would bet we get at least one storm sometime in March and if you want to ride you should be loaded up and ready to head to whatever area is lucky enough to get the snow because I don’t believe it will last very long. I had 2 different readers write me this week, one from New York and one from Vermont and they both say that it has been a bad year for them. Then on the other hand Vinnie from Montana called me and said they have had a banner year with 3 and 4 feet of snow…..that sounds like my kind of place. Also thanks to the many that have stopped in for a visit on their way to or from the U.P. Thanks for checking in. Pete <> Visit Sledheads of Frederic Website >>>> <> --- Complete Report

Trail Report: Greetings, Not my typical intro I'll admit, but there's not much sledding going on in this area right now, or from what the forecast is showing, in the immediate future either. According to said forecast in the next 10 days 3 are supposed to be just marginally below freezing, 2 are looking like rain and the rest are Sunny. There's nothing that looks remotely like weather that will repair the damages done by yesterday's blast furnace. There's lots of dirt showing at all of the crossings and water is beginning to pond as well. Wish I had better news but it is what it is and unfortunately wishing hasn't done so pretty good this year. Time to move a groomer away from my shop door and replace it with one of the Walleye boats in order to get ready for a season that is generally more reliable than our recent Winters. We will kick out another report to either sign off or let you know if we get a significant snow event.

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.

Most everybody acted cool though which was good to see. Groomers Mike and Dave M. split the Pine Stump run, Groomer Jack ran the Point trails and I hit the Falls trail. We all had the same to say, it looked good grooming but on the return trip it was gettin tore up again....lots of traffic! It was like grooming sugar, we could fill in the holes but after a dozen sleds went by it got all blown out. We all agreed to rate them as fair. Today Groomer Gerald is runnin the Stump trail again and Groomer Jack is runnin south on trail #8. Now, on to Groomer Chris` broke down grooming machine show..... I`m cancelling it after today, was just having a little fun to alieviate the frustration but here`s one last run down. We are waiting for the injector pump for the one machine. It should be here by the end of the week. Our 2012 machine is runnin fine. We have run it around the clock the last couple days. Our new machine is runnin good to.

Sidnaw / Bruce Crossing - Conditions: Good Updated: 02 / 18 By: Sno Valley Riders Snowmobile Club
Trail Report: Groomer Report: We are grooming every day again however there are some icy areas on the trials now and even a few bare spots. Snow is in the forecast! Our problem area is from the trail #3 south intersection on the grade, trail #8, to the trail #3 north intersection, it is quite thin between these intersections. There are some bare areas around Bruce Crossing. Please DO NOT climb the “Military Hill” from the highway, US 45, to the fence, we have ongoing erosion issues there and the hill climbers are adding to the problem. YOU COULD CAUSE THIS MAJOR TRAIL TO BE CLOSED IF YOU CONTINUE! Watch for the groomers, they take up most of the trail and have the right of way! Please pull over and DIM your lights for them, they have a long night out there. Remember, you can get off the trail, the groomer can not. Please ride on your own side of the trail and STOP at the stop signs! Trail #3 North to Rockland is GOOD, better as you go north. Trail #8 from Ewen to trail #3 North is FAIR. Trail #3/8 East from Bruce Crossing to the trail #3 South intersection is POOR to FAIR. Trail #3/8 West from Bruce Crossing to the trail #3 North intersection is POOR to FAIR. Trail #3 South from the railroad grade to the CC road is GOOD, better in the woods. Trail #8 from the trail #3 South intersection to Trout Creek is GOOD. Trail #8 from Trout Creek to Kenton is GOOD. Trail #8 from Kenton to Sidnaw is GOOD, better as you go east. Trail #8/15 from Sidnaw to the trail #109 intersection is GOOD. When I report “base” that is the depth of the un-groomed snow on my yard South of Sidnaw. There is no possible way to accurately report what the depth is under your snowmobile on the groomed trail, it varies widely. Have a fun and safe trip, thank you for riding our trails and visiting our local businesses! <> --- Complete Report --- More Report Links

Traverse City - Conditions: N/A Updated: 02 / 16 By: Blue Sky Snowmobile Rentals
Trail Report: 265181344829 Wow, what can I say. Trails are in rough shape. We have dirt and standing water all over the trails. Yes it is supposed to get cold this weekend. The trails will be very thin and icy. We decided to shut down tomorrow and Saturday’s rental operations. We feel the trails will be mainly ice covered and not safe until we get enough snow to groom again. The main hubs into Peegeos and Ranch Rudolph are down to dirt and the powelines on trail 5 are hit and miss with dirt, mud and snow mix. Most of the road crossings are thin and the 2 tracks and seasonal roads will be rutted up with truck traffic. This winter has been a very frustrating winter for snowmobilers in northern Michigan. All we can hope for is some good snow soon! Hopefully we get a little snow this weekend to help keep the ice to a minimum. If you do need to ride please be safe and responsible. We know it’s a short season but safety should be a priority. I am sorry to all those we couldn’t accommodate this weekend and hope to see you again soon! <> STAY AND PLAY PACKAGES In association with several lodging establishments, we are pleased to present you with our new Stay and Play Package options.

Trail Report: TRAVERSE CITY UPDATE via Blue Sky Rentals - Short Guided tour to the Ranch and back today. Trails are pretty good. We were fortunate enough to have freshly groomed trails most of the 30 mile ride. I would rate the trails as good+ in most spots. The power line to Peegeos is still a little thin. The 6-10 we’ve gotten since Saturday has really brought the trials back. We are expecting a little more snow this week. I will update Thursday after my next ride! Be safe out there!.... <> Blue Sky Snowmobile Rentals Trail Reports <> TRAVERSE CITY AREA UPDATE via Ranch Rudolf - 2/6/18: things are getting back on track for February. 11 degrees and snowing.
