Keweenaw Peninsula Trail Report – 12/01

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Snowmobile Club —

Today is the day! Unfortunately, we have not received the snow that other areas have. There is not enough snow to groom without excessive equipment wear. ⚠️ RIDE WITH CAUTION ⚠️ You will encounter closed gates, water across the trail in several areas, tree limbs down and generally VERY early season riding conditions. Keep the snow dances going and we will update when we are able to begin grooming. Reminder that currently Trail 122 is closed as well as Trail 132W and Trail 3 has a section that is shared with logging traffic. Trail 133 is also closed due to deer hunting and water areas not frozen, we will update when it’s available for use. Picture of Trail 3 in Mohawk.

Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report

WEATHER UPDATE via US National Weather Service Marquette Michigan --> Tonight, cloud cover increases ahead of tomorrow’s snowfall. In the mid-morning hours, a low pressure system passes through the northern portions of the Lower Peninsula, with system snow falling over the east half and lake effect snow falling over the west. As temperatures warm to near freezing, the snow will be dense and wet at times, and some parts of the south and east could see some rain mixed in. Winds also pick up tomorrow, which could lead to some isolated power outages. The combination of snow and high winds could also lead to hazardous travel conditions, so be careful if you’re on the roads tomorrow! #miweather #keweenaw #westernup #marquette #munising #seney #newberry #soo #straitsareaTonight, cloud cover increases ahead of tomorrow’s snowfall.

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports --> It was a beautiful bluebird sky day today in the Keweenaw! Definitely felt like spring riding…… just a little too early in the season for that stuff!! At about 3pm today when we looked at the temp, it was 48 degrees 🤦🏼‍♀️. Thankfully the temps started dropping after that and by about 9pm we fell below freezing again! 👏
Jeremy R. Horner shared these photos of their day riding the Keweenaw and said, “We had a wonderful buffet breakfast at The Mariner North that we talked about all day. Great stick to your bones meal! We headed out to High Rock and had no issues! We had a great stop at the Gay Bar in Gay also! The trails held up until 20 miles north of Calumet at about 5pm.”
Beautiful photos Jeremy! Thank you for sharing!

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports --> Many riders have seen the sun set on top of Brockway Mountain…..  how many of you have seen a sunrise?  Waking up early and riding to see the sunrise should be on everyone’s bucket list at least once.
This 80ish mile, one way trip was well worth it for this morning’s Copper Harbor sunrise….. even if playing hooky from work, may or may not have been involved 😂🤷‍♀️
Flat as a pancake from Toivola to Copper Harbor! Get out there and ride!

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports --> What age did your kids start riding with you?
It’s always awesome when you can share the love of snowmobiling with your child(ren)!
Mitchell Hansen and his wife were able to bring their 4 year old daughter up to ride the Keweenaw this weekend! They definitely planned their trip perfectly with awesome conditions!
Mitchell shared these photos and said, “Trails were absolutely phenomenal this past weekend! Huge thank you to the groomers. Myself, my wife and my four year old daughter had a blast! This was her first time out on the trails with the wife and I! Start them young!”
We love these photos and the fact you were able to experience such awesome conditions for your daughters first time out on the trails! Memories that will last a lifetime for sure! Thanks for sharing!
Megan Renee Olson and family were also up riding this weekend. They started from Watersmeet and said the trails were great. Megan said, “Our kids started around age 2. We started bringing them up north at age 3. Now kids are 4 and 6 😀. We had great trails this weekend and took the kids to Bond Falls! 13 was iffy started to get whoops headed back to Watersmeet. Trails
3 and 8 were glass!”

Do you have to have a two up sled or can they ride in front of you on the seat?

Our kids started at age 2 they are now 28 and 33 and they still snowmobile with us and our grand daughters are starting now too! Best family time ever. Would be nice if the handful of hit riders would respect and be a little more considerate when they meet other riders by not hogging the center and slowing down especially around curves and corners! Way to many close calls that seem to be getting worse every year. We are headed up to back pack up to copper harbor next weekend hope the trails are great like they were this past weekend.

2 years old - our grandson started riding his own lil' kitty kat at age 4. ( around our home, he's not on the trails)

Did 100 mile days now the grandkids with son in-law.

My son started riding around when he 1, just around the fields, and now he is 8 almost 9, rides his own snowmobile and can't wait to take the kids permit test next year when he is finally old enough so he can drive his own sled on the trails. We plan on hitting Michigan trails as soon as he is ready !

My two older ones are 2 and 3 we started them on sleds this year just riding slow down the road! Next year we’ll be getting them gear and going a little farther! My son kept saying “let’s go to the falls” haha! Good times!

2 and 5 for the grandkids…🙂

With the amount of drunk riders and just plain stupid riders, my littles would only ride midweek. But that’s just my opinion

FROM Keweenaw Trail Reports --> 👀 Will you look at these! Michael Rick and crew took the “sisters” out for a ride and said the trails are in great shape!
The sisters are the two Polaris 1992 sleds…. they are just one serial number apart! Pretty cool old iron!
They stopped at the Downtowner Lounge for lunch. Rick said, “ awesome food and great service as always! “
Thanks for sharing!
