Cheboygan Area Trail Report – 01/16

UPDATE to the UPDATE: Our system received 2-4 inches of good system snow last night. This will help build that base. Right now temps are hovering around 30. We are going to start sending groomers out when the temps get below 27. Trail 99 will be groomed tonight and we will assess if we can get on the other trails tonight/tomorrow. LET’S GET THIS SEASON STARTED (AGAIN). This weekend is gonna be a busy one, please ride safe!

WEEKEND UPDATE: The trailblazers are ready for you this weekend. Trails are in great shape.

The warm weather starts today and goes through Monday. This will have an adverse affect on trail conditions and grooming but “are you guys silly? we’re still gonna send it!”

Have a great and safe weekend!

Warm today but windy keeping the temp down so it may drift them a little bit if anything.

Send what?

TRAIL UPDATE: Trail 9 to Mann and 720 to long point were groomed last night. Groomer Dave reported big drifts but they groomed out great!!
99 will be groomed today and trail 9 to Mac city will be groomed this evening. 👍🏻

Now here comes the downer: We are hoping to run groomers Thursday. After that, the weather guessers are saying it’s going to be above 30 Friday through Monday. So what does this mean? There is going to be snow on the trails but we are going to have to park the tractors until temps get low again (looking at Monday night). Trails will get rough by the end of the weekend. 👎🏼

Mother Nature sure has given us an interesting winter.

Cheboygan members are reporting to waking up to 3-5 inches of new snow and it continues to fall. Weather persons are calling for lake effect the rest of the day. This will really help the trails! ... See MoreSee Less

PRESIDENTS’ DAY UPDATE: With a sled season that hasn’t seen great weather it was great to see so many people out this weekend enjoying the trails. As expected, even with limited snow, the trails became pretty rough by late afternoon. We did what we could to smooth them out. The snow was very sugary and wasn’t setting very well.

Looking at getting snow this week 👍🏻 but also a possible warm up this weekend. 👎🏼

Have fun and be safe!

We rode your trails on Saturday from Mackinaw city to Aloha and back and the trails were great!! They were rougher coming back, but we expected that with the traffic we met. Glad we stayed on the south side of the bridge with all the busyness I am hearing about in the UP this weekend. Awesome riding, THANK YOU for all your time and effort on the trails!!!

We came up this weekend but decided to let someone else ride the snow we would have ridden. Lol. We will have more opportunities for many many years!

Saw the groomer running back from Mac City last night....good job👍

WEEKEND UPDATE:
Yesterday had us worried, 39, sunny and windy. 3 things not conducive to keeping snow on your trails. But then it dropped 30 degrees last night and we received almost 3 inches of fresh snow in cheboygan. This is enough to keep the tractors rolling.

It’s still windy out there so expect some drifts. Especially along the trails by the lakes. 99 will get hit tonight while 9 and 720 will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

It’s Presidents’ Day weekend. It’s going to be busy. It’s going to get rough. Get out early if you can. PLEASE be safe. PLEASE be patient with local businesses and on the trails.

Remember the section of 720 from M27 through Topinabee is closed from 12am- 8am so if you are riding late night plan accordingly.

Have a great weekend!!!!!

Smoooooth operator Bruce was out on 720 and 9 last night and it groomed up surprising well.

Trail 9 to Mac city was also groomed by one of veterans, Red. He reported lighter the snow the further north he went.

99 to black mtn will be groomed tonight.

We are watching Wednesday weather very closely. If we can get through with enough snow left we will be in business for the weekend.

Reminder: it’s going to be a crazy busy weekend. Be patient at your local businesses and on the trail.
