Michigan Trail Report


Munising Area Trail Report – 04/03

GROOMING OFFICIALLY SHUT DOWN:
Well we have an official response given to MSA and DNR Field Contacts posted below. With that, trails 7 and 8 are in great shape here for post grooming season riding. Though no longer being groomed, there is a hard flat base with new snow on top and more forecast for great riding. Get out and enjoy the riding while you still can.

From the MIDNR:
"Subject: 2018 Snowmobile Season.
This issue comes up each year when we have a late snow…. No one has given permission to extend grooming. The use of private lands for snowmobile trails expired March 31st.
Reasons include:
Permission from Private land owners has not been gathered or even discussed
What type or amount of use will this produce during the week
ORV conflicts as this season has started
No notification of Law enforcement officials
Saying this, trails on state land continue to be open to snowmobile use as conditions warrant."

A few lingering lake effect snow showers over Alger County eastward will diminish before midnight, & winds will begin to come down as well. A beautiful day is in store for tomorrow with highs in the upper 40's east to upper 50's west but it will be breezy again during the day. ... See MoreSee Less

Watch out for slick spots this morning, especially in areas where light snow has accumulated on roadways! Expect lingering lake effect snow today with blustery northwest winds, diminishing later this afternoon/evening. Some beach erosion is possible along the shoreline of Lake Superior around and east of Munising due to high waves. Looking ahead to tomorrow, it will be much warmer with breezy southwest winds! ...

Snow is coming down pretty good here now

Three inches on the ground in the hills above munising. Heavy grapple for a while last night. The snow is still here.
