Western U P Snowmobile Trail Report



We received about 4″ of new snow yesterday.  Temps will be in the teens on Friday and Saturday with a chance of snow on Saturday.  Sunday will only be in the single digits for temps.

Please when you see the groomers please pull over they have the right of way!

Please stay on marked trails riding on unmarked trails can result in the clubs losing easement for that trail.

Gogebic Range Trail Authority Groomer Report  January 20, 2022

All GRTA trails are being groomed tonight.  11S was groomed last night into this morning and is being missed tonight, good powder ride for tomorrow though! Trails have improved dramatically with a day and a half of steady snow. We have a few more days ahead and cold temps along with three groomers running every night.

Gogebic Area Groomers Report  January 10, 2022

Gogebic Area Trails are all in fair to good condition with the exception of 8E which is very thin – especially after Ewen.   Have a groomer down and groomers are working round the clock to keep up.    Thanks very much from the sister clubs who are helping out right now!    Cold temps and daily snow are in our forecast this week!

Snowmobiling Information


Winter lays a white blanket across the hills inviting all to come outdoors and play; Snowmobile down endless groomed trails. Michigan is a snowmobiler’s paradise, boasting more than six million acres of state and federal lands along with hundreds of miles of privately owned trails.

It’s Snow Time for Michigan Snowmobilers. Michigan ranks among the top eight snowmobiling states in the nation. It’s first in sheer beauty, with thousands of miles of groomed and ungroomed public trails. They span whole regions of countryside, winding across rolling fields, then plunging down woodland ravines up into deep pine forests, from town to town in Michigan.

If wintry trails beckon you, Michigan has it all. In fact, a growing number of hotels, motels and resorts offer door-to-trail proximity.

No agency has been more active in transforming Michigan into a haven for snowmobile enthusiasts than the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). They are the creators and guardians of Michigan’s major trail network through the state park system.

Snowmobiling is becoming more and more a family sport. Safety is paramount. Most accidents occur when drivers override their headlights at high speeds on remote trails. Alcohol is frequently a factor. When you snowmobile in Michigan, observe state laws. Protect the environment and your own safety by sticking to established trails. Use common sense and courtesy. And enjoy!
