Michigan Snowmobile Trail Reports

November 12, 2019 – 2:30 am update: Lake effect snow has kicked in along snow belts in the Western U.P. and Keweenaw Peninsula and the snow belts east of Marquette through Munising to Grand Marais. Some areas may get 20+ inches with wide-spread snow totals of 10+ inches in those snow belts.

Good amounts of lake effect snow has fallen and will continue to fall through Tuesday in the snow belts of Northern Lower Michigan.

The snow will stop as we get into the midweek and then later in the week high temperatures will get into the 30s and 40s, so some of the new base will be lost.

Not much snow in the forecast for the weekend. Let’s just hope the temps will stay cold and will get another burst of snow later in November as we approach the start of the snowmobile season.

JUST A REMINDER: Groomed snowmobile trails do not open until December 1, 2019 (and some a little later.) Please do not go around barriers and ride on snowmobile trails. Also, please do not trespass on private land.

ALSO: You may not operate a snowmobile in an area open to public hunting during the November 15 – 30 (firearm deer season) 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
