Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 18" to 30"
Date of Report: December 24, 2019
Merry Christmas to everyone. Trails in the Houghton/Hancock/Keweenaw are still in good shape, even with the warm weather. We had a ton of snow before the warm weather, so we have lost some snow, but the base is there and packed and the groomers are still out on all trails. Of course, there will be some moguls where there has been a lot of traffic. It is thin along some of the lakeshore in the Keweenaw Peninsula. The mat and snow are down under the bridge, do not cross on the canal. It is not safe anywhere. There is a reroute on Trail 133 around the stamp sands in Gay that is open and the Mandan Trail portion of Trail 134 is now open. Trail 3 from Dollar Bay to Lake Linden and the entire Freda Loop (Trails 120 & 121) will be closed the whole season for repair. Nights are cool and trails that are soft during the day, are setting up nice at night. Watch the corners in case of some ice. Look forward to seeing everyone out on the trails!!
Please stay off all ice in the area, none of it is safe. Respect others on the trails and private property. Don’t be the idiots that ruin it for the others. Slow down, there is no reason to be going 100. Save the drinking for after the riding. Stay safe!
