Michigan Trail Report

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/27

Greetings Sledders,

Quick update. I wouldn’t ordinarily generate a report so closely behind the last one but conditions have changed and I know many of you want to come up this weekend and may be apprehensive based on my last report.

We didn’t get anything out of the system that just went through but we are now experiencing the wrap around snow in the form of Lake Effect.

It’s difficult to say how much is on the ground already or to say how much we will ultimately receive. Those are an unknown because of the wind and it’s anybody’s guess when it comes to LE snows.

We do have enough now to upgrade the trail condition slightly to fair. However, beware of the ice base on the Southern half or so of our trails as it is everywhere. The Northern half is for the most part packed snow covered by fresh.

We are scheduled to groom through Saturday night. A warm up starts Sunday and continues all week so grooming efforts may just end for the season Saturday. That’s not set in stone but it is a possibility.

The next report will be the final for the season and will be out on Wednesday or so.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy, and The Kids


At Fay’s Motel enjoy direct access to the Grayling Area snowmobile trails.

It's time to end this misery. The black season in our area has been disappointing to say the least.

Neal (the tamale man) and Doug (the great mushroom killer) did team up over the week end. They picked 72 grays and yellows.

Doug will be in for the next couple weeks looking for yellows. He picked 114 yesterday. We'll see if he gets anywhere near his

2,500 (70 lbs?) from last year.

Well, everyone have a good summer and winter. Take care and we will see you next year.

Eager Shroomers,

Hope everyone is well and avoiding the the virus.

A quick update on the local fungus. Keith and I took a drive Sunday to check out a few of our usual spots. Nothing!! Not even one of Keith's babies.

Just to keep with the strangeness of this year, no leaves, no catkins but the tiger lilies and Dutchman's breeches are blooming and trillium are up and setting buds. Go figure!!

The weather man is calling for a cool week (40-50) and freezing at night with not much rain. Not sure what this will do for the harvest.

We have decided we will be open for contactless reservations only. We will take reservations over the phone with credit card info (cash can be left in the room) and keep the office closed.

We will not take walk-in reservations. Call us if you have any questions.

As always we'll keep you informed.

Stay well.

Sandy & Keith
