February 19, 2019 – 2:00 pm update: Hope everyone had a great Presidents’ Day Weekend. Looks like it was one of the best weekends of the season with plenty of sleds out on the trails.
Trails conditions should hold up very well this week and into the weekend. Snow is expected on Wednesday with light to moderate accumulations in Northern Lower Michigan and moderate to heavy accumulations in the Upper Peninsula. Midweek riding conditions should be good to excellent everywhere. More snow is expected going into the weekend for the Upper Peninsula, so weekend conditions should be very good. A rain/snow mix is in the forecast for Northern Lower Michigan. Trail conditions should be pretty good to start the weekend in Northern Lower Michigan. Tough to say how the weather will affect conditions for the latter half of the weekend.
Here’s the Snow Depth Map to give you an idea of the areas with the best snow in the U.P. and Northern Lower Michigan. (A lot of deep snow out there.)
