TRAVERSE CITY AREA UPDATE via Grand Traverse Area Snowmobile Club - Thank you to Ted,Steve,Jeremy and Dirk for taking time out of their busy days to do some emergency trail maintenance. We had a lot of overhanging tree limbs that were making it hard to get the groomer in and out of Fife Lake. These four guys took on the problem and got it solved. So even when your groomers can’t groom they are still hard at work trying to improve our great trail system. Special thanks to Ted for organizing this. I don’t know what we will do without you when you move... #traversecity #snowphotos ... See MoreSee Less

Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report

TRAVERSE CITY AREA UPDATE via Ranch Rudolf - If you want a winter experience this weekend it will have to be with Beau and Knox. This kind of horse power navigates snow, slush and dirt. Horse drawn hayrides are a great way to get outside and enjoy the season. Rides available by reservation only on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. 231-947-9529
The bad news is this is not the weekend snowmobilers are hoping for. Yes, there is still snow on the ground, but there is also mud and puddles. Groomers are not running as temps have been too warm.
Lodge will be open 12pm to 4pm this Saturday and 12pm to 3pm this Sunday with counter service for food and beverage... #traversecity #snowphotos

TRAVERSE CITY AREA UPDATE via Grand Traverse Area Snowmobile Club - Trail update 02/25/2021
This is the trail update nobody wants to read. Temps in the 40’s with sunshine does not make for good snowmobile trails. When I groomed on Monday the conditions were pretty darn good and I saw quite a few riders out enjoying one of the last days before the warm up. We have had a few days of above freezing temps and this has melted all the snow on the roads and put a hurting on our base. Lots of dirt showing in areas and I’m sure the swamp area going South out of Kalkaska is a muddy mess. There doesn’t seem to be any real snow in the forecast and temps are not cooperating either. We have halted grooming until we see a change in the weather.
What a weird snowmobile season. I saw on the news the other night that Gaylord was at 2/3 of their normal snow totals for this time of year. Let’s hope for a snow storm later in the month. Might be a good time to give that snowmobile of yours a little love and get it ready to hit the trails when we do get snow. Last time I groomed I saw a few boogie wheels on the trail. Check those hyfax and boogie wheels as the low snow conditions of this year haven’t been friendly to your track and suspension. A little time spent in the garage will save you a lot of time on the trail.
I hope that this is not the last report of the year but until conditions improve I will be off the trails until dirt bike season... #traversecity
