Groomer Report

The trails held up very well this week and are in good late season condition.

The forecast for the next 3 days is beautiful for everything except our trails. They will be deteriorating quickly over the next couple days.

We groomed the entire system Thursday night in preparation for the weekend.

Get out early, enjoy and be safe!

Thank you for coming to da UP!

Please use caution in all low areas as ice bridges are beginning to deteriorate.

If you see water across the trail slow down!!  Some is getting to be deep.
