Snowmobile Trail Reports

Trail Report Map January 27, 2015 - 2:30 pm update - TUESDAY AFTERNOON - Some areas of the U.P. picked up some snow - 2 to 4 inches - and the groomers have been out throughout the U.P. The fresh snow and cold temps have helped the groomers get most of the trails in the snow belts of the U.P. into very good shape. Midweek riding should be excellent right now in many areas of the U.P.

No new snow in Northern Lower Michigan. Cold temps have helped firm up the trails. Two to four inches in the forecast for Wednesday night and Thursday. Most trails in the snow belts will need 4 or more inches to get them back into great shape, so the riding this weekend depends upon the midweek snow. We'll keep you updated...

January 26, 2015 - 1:20 pm update - MONDAY AFTERNOON - Snowmobile trails need more snow throughout the Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Michigan. The good news is that the Western U.P. and the Central U.P. should pick up a couple of inches of snow on Monday. This should give groomers something to work with for midweek riding. More snow on Thursday, then colder weather and lake effect snow for the weekend.

The snowmobile trails in Northern Lower Michigan are in bad need of snow with a thin base in the hearts of the snow belts and then marginal conditions outside of the snow belts. GOOD NEWS is that snow is in the forecast for Thursday with up to 3 inches possible. Cold weather returns Friday after the snow and lake effect snow is in the forecast for the weekend. The cold temps and lake effect snow could create some very good riding conditions for this weekend.

You can get an idea of the best opportunities to get an early season ride from viewing the Snow Depth Map.

Best resource to follow the lake effect snow is the Radar Loop.
