Michigan Trail Report


Grand Marais Trail Report – 11/28

GRAND MARAIS UPDATE via Grand Marais Sno-Trails Assoc.​

We are getting tons of questions about snow, trail conditions etc. Snow totals range from 5-10 inches depending where you are. Conditions are another thing. Storm damage was massive. High winds along with a wet heavy snow means many many down trees and debris. It will more than likely take our groomers days to clear the trails beginning Sunday. When we know more we’ll post more info. The above picture was taken by groomer driver jack on trail 8 today. He says there’s trees down everywhere and that is just a small section of our trail system. If you do come up riding after Sunday use extreme caution!! They will do their very best to clean it up as soon as possible!!

From Phil - Ran trail 8 East 11miles past the pine stump parking lot. Lots of traffic out on the trails. Sleds were still out at 1:30am. 8 East was pretty bumpy, it smoothed out real nice though.Even after grooming some areas of the trails are so soft the trails aren't holding up for too long.My guess is when we’re widening the trails, the drag pulls in all that early season deep powdery snow from the sides of the trails. And boy does the machine pull hard and if you get too far over to the side the machine, just sinks down. Lucky we don't get stuck.8 East is smooth and has lots of beautiful scenery with snow covered trees . Tonight is the first night, in the last 13 days, that I felt like I was out grooming. Minimal storm damage tress to deal with no trail signage to put up. Hum.... I have heard, that we need to start working SMARTER.... Maybe I shouldn't be pulling that soft fluffy snow on the trail.

Sorry..... I had to add my 2¢. 😂
