The Keweenaw Snowmobile Club is a non-profit organization responsible for grooming and maintaining the 235 miles of snowmobile trails that run from the hamlet of Toivola (roughly 15 miles south of Houghton) to the very tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula at High Rock Bay. It takes a fleet of 5 groomers to keep the trails in pristine condition.
We pride ourselves in the fact that nearly every mile in our trail system is groomed once every 24 hours. That level of grooming is critical to turn the 250+ inches of annual snowfall that falls into miles of smooth trail. Our annual average of total groomed miles in a season is over 35,000. That is enough to circle the world nearly 1 1/2 times!
It takes a dedicated team of both volunteers and professionals to keep the trails in the fantastic conditions that many have come to expect when riding our area.
