This will result in a gradual changeover to snow through this evening, with periods of mostly light snow continuing right through Wednesday. Some light accumulations will occur, especially across Eastern Upper and the snow belts of Northern Lower Michigan.

Snow, snow and more snow. We had a forecast of 1-3″ overnight in and around Traverse City. We got more like 8-10″. So I need not state the obvious..CONDITIONS are great.

Off the main trails with double seat sleds will be suicide in this deep snow. Groomers will be out daily. So jump online book a sled and head North to TC. We have sleds and rooms available.

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 12/11

We’ll here we are December 11th and the winter season is shaping to be a great one for snowmobiling.

Trails opened on December 1st with little coverage. Now we are getting good snow 3-4′ over past 2 or 3 days.

The groomers have not been out yet, as volunteer trail cleanup and updated signage is still taking place. Since snow base is thin I would wait a little longer before going riding, I know plenty of locals have been out, however, stumps and debris under snow would be risky.

We are pumped for a good riding season, wrap up that Christmas shopping pronto and get you sled tuned up or just online and make a reservation for a rental from Snowblitz.

Have a great day and Happy Holidays. from Brett and the Snowblitz crew

We update the trail conditions via email if you want to sign up for that, head on over to SnowBlitz.com… while you’re there, reserve your sled rental online for this upcoming season!

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 03/08

OK, this winter has no doubt packed a blow to, not only us rental guys, but any business connected to snow related activities. As of this weekend we had 17′ of fresh snow and yes wet heavy snow at that. As a result the branches down over the trail are many, since all of the trail maintenance is done by volunteers, most folks have to work M-F. So,the decision has been made to close the Traverse City trails for the rest of this season. Which could be 1 week or maybe 1 month who knows. As for riding off the trail and through the woods, not real sure whats permitted at this point. We will be sending any Traverse City rental folks to our Mancelona/Gaylord locations which ARE OPEN and have great snow. Their trail networks are awesome.. So not great news, sorry. I will update if anything changes…

Cheers,
Brett

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 03/02

Talk about a weird winter no big storms for January and February now we get into March and they’re are talking big storms…

The trails as of yesterday were pretty good early in the am, as the day got warmer as you would expect they were slushy. Still covered and a good amount of snow out there. Tonight weather channels are forecasting 8″-12″ of snow for this area, over Friday and Saturday.

Temps next week are going to warm up. So with all this snow and some warmer temps next week will make for some awesome spring snowmobiling. Drop us a line or book a sled online at snowblitz.com…

Cheers,
Brett

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 02/24

We did get a little snow from overnight storm, maybe 1 1/2′ There is more snow in the forecast for the upcoming weekend. Trails will be icy, with a thin coverage of fresh snow for this weekend. Not great but usable. In the woods there is always more, however watch out for stumps and mounds under light cover. As you go east to Blue Bear and Mancelona snow is better and has held up longer with warmer temps.

Cheers,
Brett

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 02/15

As of today the trails are icy and covered in most areas. Looking at the forecast we are expect storm to drop 4-6′ on Thursday through Saturday/Sunday. If that comes we’ll be in great shape, solid and icy underneath with a good layer of fresh snow on top. Most likely it will still be slippery in places. Temps are also staying a degree or two lower than that has been forecast… more good news. Stay tuned this weekend could turn out to be one of the best this season. Easy when you set the bar low.

Cheers,
Brett

It looks like we’re in business once again. With 5+’ last night and good amount more in the forecast with cold temps for the next week. We will be open this weekend and conditions will be good to start, depending on how much traffic is on the trails will depend on how they hold up. Groomers will go out today to pack it down. Lets hope it continues! See you this weekend on the trail!

Cheers,
Brett

Finally some snow! Another 3 inches or so last night. Everything is covered and shaping up nicely. Groomers went out yesterday and headed out again today to get things packed down. Lots of snowmobilers out and about enjoying their first rides of the season. Looks like we have a good bit of cold weather and snow in the forecast, lets hope we are all set going forward for good conditions!

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 02/25

i’d like to be reporting better news. But we just haven’t had a come back from the warm temperatures of couple of weeks ago. The trails have been barely ridable with cold nights and mild days. So as of now it appears we are done for the season. On a brighter side, spring is just around the corner and we rent ATVs and boats, jet skis, also we have a Monterey 33ft Cabin Cruiser in Charleviox.

Traverse City Trail Report – Snowblitz Snowmobile Rentals – 02/18

The weather is to warm to groom so the groomers have been parked for now. I just got back from checking the trail in a few places on the west side of the trail system. The trails are in fair shape right now, we have lost a lot of snow especially out in the open areas where there is some bare ground showing. There is still a lot of snow in the woods, the trails in my opinion are rideable but they are mostly ice. I’m sure that there is some bare spots on the trails and dirt roads will be down to dirt now, getting into towns will be difficult also. The south part of the trail system from M-186 south was getting pretty thin before the warm up, so the trails might be bare down that way. If you are into riding off trail on power lines and gas lines and wooded two tracks then there is decent snow snow. They are calling for colder temps for the next couple of days with a chance of snow. cheers Brett

Well, the warm weather has not been good. Trails have held up surprisingly good considering warm days. Mainly because nights have been cold, the wind has cooled down temps and traffic has been low. This weekend, at this point will still be ridable, with snirt in usual high traffic areas. Temperatures we expect to cool down Friday or Saturday. I took a drive through Mancelona and Gaylord yesterday, and Traverse City and Mancelona definitely have more snow than Gaylord. I will update closer to the weekend.
See you on the trail!
Cheers,
Brett

I’m sure it’s no surprise that we have had plenty of snow. At least 2″ yesterday and cold temperatures remain. Trails were groomed last night for the upcoming weekend and look great. This weekend should be a bit warmer, making for great riding. There is a little bit of snow in the forecast before the weekend. Join us on facebook for specials and last minute deals. cheers Brett

Snow, snow, snow. Well I know I probably don’t need to do a trail report because most folks are still digging themselves out from the last storm. Yes we do have great conditions this weekend. We got approx 8′ from the last storm and have cold temeratures. The weekend looks like having 28-30 deg which will mean awesome riding for super bowl weekend. Once the roads are cleared, take a trip up north, trails are expected to be a little quieter this weekend. For those that want to get away and won’t be glued to the TV watching Super Bowl it will be a great weekend to escape the city and hit the trails!
