Traverse City Trail Report – Blue Sky Snowmobile Rentals – 02/24

Trails are almost non existent in Traverse City. More warm temps in the forecast. We are hesitant to put the sleds away just yet but it looks like our very short season may be over.

I will post again if we see an improvement in the weather. For those of you who did get a chance to ride with us this season, thanks for your patronage! One of these years I’m sure we will see a good winter again.

Remember we also rent boats during the summer on East Bay and delivery. We look forward to the next season.

Wow, what can I say. Trails are in rough shape. We have dirt and standing water all over the trails. Yes it is supposed to get cold this weekend. The trails will be very thin and icy. We decided to shut down tomorrow and Saturday’s rental operations. We feel the trails will be mainly ice covered and not safe until we get enough snow to groom again. The main hubs into Peegeos and Ranch Rudolph are down to dirt and the powelines on trail 5 are hit and miss with dirt, mud and snow mix. Most of the road crossings are thin and the 2 tracks and seasonal roads will be rutted up with truck traffic. This winter has been a very frustrating winter for snowmobilers in northern Michigan. All we can hope for is some good snow soon! Hopefully we get a little snow this weekend to help keep the ice to a minimum. If you do need to ride please be safe and responsible. We know it’s a short season but safety should be a priority. I am sorry to all those we couldn’t accommodate this weekend and hope to see you again soon! ... See MoreSee Less

Today’s tour was great! Had some retired folks that had never ridden before! Bucket list check! The trails are in good shape overall, we ran across the groomer down by marker 6 on the way back to Peegeos, untouched trails ..... perfect. We are pretty well sold out tomorrow and Saturday with a few snowmobiles left for Sunday. Come on out and ride, we may only have a month left to enjoy this! Be safe out there ... See MoreSee Less

Short Guided tour to the Ranch and back today. Trails are pretty good. We were fortunate enough to have freshly groomed trails most of the 30 mile ride. I would rate the trails as good+ in most spots. The power line to Peegeos is still a little thin. The 6-10 we’ve gotten since Saturday has really brought the trials back. We are expecting a little more snow this week. I will update Thursday after my next ride! Be safe out there! ... See MoreSee Less
