February 25, 2021 – 12:15 pm update: – Looks like a tough weekend for snowmobiling in Michigan. Highs in the 30s and 40s on Friday and Saturday will soften up the trails and create challenging conditions throughout the weekend.
You may be able to find some areas to ride in the snow belts of the Western U.P. and the Eastern U.P. The base has generally held up this week and groomers have been out. In fact trails should be in good shape today (Thursday) and should probably stay in good shape through Friday morning. Warm up will start affecting the trails on Friday afternoon.
The warm up this week has hurt trail conditions significantly in Northern Lower Michigan. Reports of good trails early in the week turning into wet and muddy trails mid-week. Conditions generally in Northern Lower Michigan are likely to be poor to worse this weekend with the continuing warm weather.
