Groomer Report

Trail Report: 12-2-2023  Current trail conditions are snow covered with about 4″-6″ of snow depending on location but they are not groomed. The trails have officially opened and there is rideable snow out there. All the gates are opened except for the last mile west of Rasho rd to Peegeo’s restaurant. Its too thin and it is private property.
We signed on Wednesday and Thursday. Removed several trees that had fallen so the trail system is good to go. We will be going out grooming on Tuesday and Wednesday to smooth out the bumps and start a good base. The trail will be snirt for a while until we get another good snowfall.
Trail Report: 11-29-2023  Current trail conditions are snow covered but not groomed and warm temps for the next few days. The trails will officially open on Friday Dec 1st but the snow will be heavy and we will not be grooming due to the warm conditions. Please be careful, we are currently out on the trail system checking our trail signs and removing any fallen trees. North trail from Kalkaska to the Power Lines is complete. South Trail from the Manistee bridge to Maker #7 is complete. We will be working on the west trail Marker #8 to the Fairgrounds Thursday and we will install the signs on the spur to Peegeo’s Restaurant. Fife lake to Kalkaska need a few signs but it is ready to go.
Trail Report: 11-14-2023  Current trail conditions are DIRT .  We completed our trail brushing a few weeks ago. Now starts the signage portion of the year. Pete H., Mark D. and myself did a complete trail survey on Sunday. Its not too bad but we have work to do. A few trees down, lots of broken poles and a few water holes. We will begin grooming as soon as the snow is deep enough. Thanks, Steve Haver – GTASC groomer

Ride safe and ride sober!! Remember to watch for groomers you never know when one will be coming around a corner or over a hill. Also remember that the signs on the snowmobile trails are there for the safety of snowmobilers, so please don’t remove them.
