NEWBERRY AREA UPDATE via TASA Tahquamenon Area Snowmobile Association – 1/16

Jan. 16, 2020 8:00am Updates below GREEN

UPDATE: The fresh snow is falling and 3-6" expected through tonight and more on the way for Saturday. The trails are in better than good and will be close to excellent which the fresh snow will push it right over the top for a great weekend with the amount of traffic expected. Traffic has been light all week. The details for the trails are detailed below. We Take Pride in Your Ride!!

There is a staging area north of town at Silver Creek 3 miles north. This is crucial information especially with the amount of traffic this weekend. If you don’t want to get hemmed up in the parking lot in town. Go north after crossing the tracks and take a left at the Silver Creek ORV sign and go to the dead end. Plenty of room there!

A friendly reminder is slow down and stay to the right especially on the corners. Stay on the trail. Private property owners gives us the privilege to have trails across their property and we do not want to lose it. Normal grooming operations are in full swing.

TASA works mostly with volunteers. We have the best groomers in the U.P. They dedicate long hours and nights away from their families to groom the trails so you can enjoy them safely. Please be cautious as you approach a groomer as there is not much room for them and you so please slow down and once there is room then go around them. It is always appreciated when you can tip your hat to them and thank them for their efforts or give them a wave. Be Safe out there and take time to enjoy nature and the best scenery the U.P has to offer.

The system shutdown over Presidents Day weekend kept me off the trails. Couldn’t get a sticker anywhere and all the pre printed ones were sold out. Disappointed in the DNR’s choice there

Let us know when you get it fixed please

When ever free fishing weekend is the system is being worked on. That was Saturday Sunday Monday.

Good luck

Looks pretty though.

Not surprising! Lol 🙂
