Michigan Trail Report

Seney Trail Report – 01/13

Hello Everyone!

Mother Nature has decided to be nice to us for this busy holiday weekend with a return of cold temps and some fresh powder to go on a very nice hard pack trail system! We are grooming around the clock right now watch out for our groomers! Remember that the traffic this weekend will be very heavy so be prepared for trails later in the day to be rough in spots. Be safe and have fun out there!


“Where Friends And Trails Meet”


VETERANS RIDE: March 10th. Okay, I’m starting my pitch for registering for the ride. It takes a lot of preplanning to pull off such a large event in a small town with all volunteers. PLEASE call or email to register today. Need numbers for T-shirts and food. We don’t turn anyone away the day of the ride but we have run out of food before and its very embarrassing and a bummer for those last in line. Contact Diane @ 906-287-0207, seneysnowmobiling@gmail.com

If you have never been to a veterans ride before you might want to join us. We start with a ceremony at the flag pole before splitting up into guided groups for a 80-100 mile ride in the majestic woods of the Upper Peninsula on trails groomed just for the ride. A hot lunch is provided off trail at the headwaters of the Taquamanon. Dinner rounds out the day of camaraderie.
Be a Vet, Bring a Vet, or Thank a Vet!
Thats our motto. Hope to see you there.
DESERTS NEEDED: I am asking for volunteers to make the deserts again this year for the veterans ride. If you are able to bring up a desert please email me what size, i.e. 9×12 or 1/2 sheet cake pan, so I can tabulate when we have enough.
We started to groom 2 tracks for the vet ride already. If you are a cabin owner, a local, or just someone who boondocks on the 2 tracks you should consider being an SSA club member. Already a member; are your dues current? This is the money used to groom these trails. It cost $200 every time the groomer leaves the barn. As these trails aren’t part of the “system” the club encores all the cost. You can become a member or update your membership thru Paypal at seneysnowmobiling.com
or by sending it to SSA, PO Box 102, Seney, MI 49883. If you’d like to make a donation to the vet ride, mail it to the address above.

Hello Everyone!

We groomed slash panned Trail 43/8 Friday to the Bear Trap. In some places there is probably 16 inches of snow and other places there was probably 8 to 10 inches. There is one detour up on the grade, the same one as last year. We are still packing in the base. It is still thin. We groomed Petrol Rd. into Melstrand. There is one water hole on Petrol Rd. You have to ride thru it and it’s probably at least 10” deep and 6’ long. On Tuesday we got 10” of snow in some spots, the snow got mixed in places with the sand so we had to cut deep enough into the trail to get the chatter bumps out left from the ATV’s. Friday there was 4-5” of new snow and we panned and packed in where it was set nice from our Tuesday efforts. We had to groom in a few places that needed some structural cutting. We pushed back the snow from the road crossings to set the standard for the season. If maintained it should help with keeping the snowmobilers from dragging the snow back into the roads.
We still need more snow, it was pretty busy here at the station all day Saturday.

There’s a slight warmup this coming up weekend so watch the reports.

I will keep you updated as much as possible on here and if you’re on Facebook follow Seney Snowmobile Association or Mater’s Stop N Go for updates as well! Hope to see you all soon!

For all you people that have left me shitty remarks on here i will have you know that our group of people have been snowmobiling around the Grand Maris area since 1959 . And if you don't think we have spent money in that area you are out of your mind . I would say that we have more than payed our fair share . I would like to see if all of you are still snowmobiling when you are in your 70 plus years .Plus most of you all you do is ride from bar to bar and you think when you go home you put on 200 to 300 miles wow. Our trips are usually between 1,400 and 1,600 miles in a week most of our machines have between 21,000 to 25,000 on them before we get rid of them .Plus I was only commenting on the price difference of gas from Ann Arbor to Seney.

Thanks for update randy, look forward to visiting soon

Wow your gas is really high up there ours is around 2.19 today

Oh yeah , Thank you for the UP date see you soon Randy

Can't wait till I can get up there in January

First, if you have been going to Grand Marais since 1959 you should have known this since 1959 as it has always been higher in GM. Second, I lived in GM until the fall of 1964 and don't recall snowmobiles zooming around GM.
