This is the Keweenaw Snowmobile Trail System Report for Friday, December 7th, 2018.
Snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are officially open and this weekend we will begin limited grooming on the trails that have enough snow. Remember when you are out on the trails to watch for the groomers, they have the right away.
Trail 120 and 121 that goes around Freda is closed for the season and will not be reopened. As well as trail 3 from Dollar Bay to Lake Linden. You can still get to Dollar Bay by way of Hancock and to Lake Linden by way of Calumet. Trails 122, 124, and 133 are closed until the ground freezes. Currently the water holes are too deep. The Houghton/Hancock bridge will be closed until the end of shipping season, so the mat will not go down for a few more weeks. Trail 3 from Clear Lk Junction to Copper Harbor is closed for logging.
As soon as conditions improve the Keweenaw Snowmobile Club will turn loose its fleet of groomers to get the trails in shape for the busy snowmobile season. We will update you as soon as something happens.
Any trail usage should be done with extreme caution as there is very low snow cover and there are rocks, stumps, branches, wet areas and hazards that have not been identified.
The Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau asks that you stay on the trails, STAY OFF THE ICE, respect private property, do not drink and drive, and above all else, drive safely. The signs on the trails are there for rider’s safety so please DO NOT remove or destroy them.
Snowfall & Weather: Snow fall in the Keweenaw Peninsula, 1.5 inches of new snow with 13 inches of snow on the ground, 51.5 inches have fallen to date as of 12/07/2018.
