November 20, 2018 – 1:00 am update: Lots of pre-season November snow for the Upper Peninsula with over 20 inches falling already in the Keweenaw Peninsula and in the snow belts of the Eastern U.P. north of Newberry and Munising. (See the REMINDER about riding in November below.) With a little luck we may get some early season riding this year when the trails open December 1. The 10-day forecast is calling for cold weather and some snow, so there may be enough of a base for riding in some U.P. snow belts in early December.
Some November snow has fallen in Northern Lower Michigan, however not enough yet to establish a base that can be groomed. We’ll need some heavy snow to get the trails open on Day 1 in Northern Lower Michigan. No talk right now of a big snow the forecast.
JUST A REMINDER: Snowmobile trails do not officially open until December 1, 2018. Travel on most snowmobile trails is not permitted until they open on December 1. Please respect all closed gates. You may snowmobile on public lands where permitted. Please do not trespass on private land.
