Are trail gates closed on Trail 5 from Champion up to Big Bay and other trails around there or can we still sneak out? With this much snow, we can probably can’t see the gates! Lol.

WEATHER UPDATE via US National Weather Service Marquette Michigan >> Winter Storm and Blizzard Warnings have been issued! Blizzard warnings are in effect for Baraga and Marquette Counties. Heavy wet snow will arrive later tonight into Thursday morning as a low pressure system lifts into the Great Lakes. Strong northerly winds are expected and blowing snow is likely. Widespread 8-12 inches are forecast; higher amounts in excess of 2 feet are forecast across the higher terrain of Marquette and Baraga Counties into Thursday morning. Note: A sharp gradient in snow totals is expected just inland from the Great Lake-especially along the Lake Superior shoreline in Baraga and Marquette Counties. Wet snow combined with strong northerly winds may cause sporadic power outages. A prolonged mix of rain and snow will enable lower snow totals over the eastern sections of the U.P. #miweather #keweenaw #westernup #marquette #munising #seney #newberry #soo #straitsarea ...

ONTONAGON AREA UPDATE via Hamilton's North Coast Adventures >> Well, we didn't see or hear any riders around the shop with all the fresh snow we just got, so we had to go out and investigate! As of this morning there is a general 1-2.5' down, more in traditional west wind snowbelt zones. Like da porkies! There is 1.5-2.5' of snow on South Boundary Road yet and its only seen 2 sleds! Zero tracks on 102 (hopefully no one beats me to that today!) We parked at the visitor center sign on SBR. Lake of the Clouds was plowed, not recommended. Our cottage rental is open. Free guide if you stay with us! SBR is a great 30+ mile option to get out and ride. Lakes are not safe, rivers are not safe. Ride smart and have fun!!

LAKE GOGEBIC AREA UPDATE via Gogebic Area Grooming >> Yes, we have received quite a bit of snow over the past week. Will the groomers be going out? No. There's a lot of slush and running water hidden under all this fresh. With the official end of season coming this Sunday and having only a few segments that are hard pack road grade it's not worth us taking the risk of costing our club more money by getting stuck or whatever else could possibly happen with a few runs. If you choose to ride, ride with extreme caution and be aware a hazard could be around any corner. Also be aware that Mi has closed 13n from Bergland to Rockland. #lakegogebic #westernup ...
