Groomer Report

4-2-2021  Its official, our trail are officially closed to snowmobile traffic (not that you could get to them anyway), but our season ends 3-31. Fingers crossed that we will have a better season next year, at least here in North East part of the state!

3-13-2021  Well, it is over for this year!!  Tractors are in, drags off.  Now all we can hope for is warm sunshine. Trails are really open til Mar. 31, but no snow!.  Suppose we will get a storm in April. Usually happens.  Til next season, have a good summer!!

3-6-2021  Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like the season is over!!  Temps going up, warm sunshine, even tho thermometer says still in 20’s.  If we do get snow before the end of the season, where Rogers City connector leaves corner of US 23 and 646, there is logging going on.

2-26-2021  Had  3 groomers out yesterday.  Trail 99/990 in fair condition. Watch out for logging!!  Black Mt., trail 99/994 in good condition the further north you go, the better. Trail 992, Millersburg to Mann Rd. is fair, thinner toward Posen. Elk connector trail 9 south is to be groomed today. With temps. to be in 40’s for a few days, hopefully trails will still be rideable. Fingers crossed!!

2-21-2021  Nothing new to report. No new snow, a lot of sunshine and warmer temps!

2-17-2021  Groomer Dean did go out 2-15. He reported that snow conditions vary. Most of trail 9, south from Millersburg, has some snow, however, there is a section that goes on a road and it is plowed down to dirt. Don’t know what will happen to trails if we get temps in 30’s later in the week.

2-15-2021  Groomer were out today and last night. All trails will be done by tomorrow AM as Elk connector , Trail 9 south of Millersburg will be done tonight. Please know that snow depths will vary through out the entire system. Since the groomer is kept in our yard north of Rogers City and groomer went out last night, we had 3 sleds, obviously following groomed trail, come in our yard following groomer tracks! Sure it was a surprise to them to find out our yard isn’t the trail!!!

2-13-2021  One groomer went out last night, did 99 and 990. we have had snow north of Rogers City, 4-6″. Don’t know how far this snow went. Was supposed to be Huron shore.

2-11-2021     Has been snowing all day north of Rogers City!! Most of the time has been big snow flakes!  Got a note that our groomer barn in Millersburg will be open 2-13-2021.  Heat will be on. Restaurant across the street (Three Cedars) Will be open with limited seating.  You could order out and come over to the groomer barn and eat. We have no bathroom facilities, but gas station has porta potty and the trail head building bathroon, behind barn, is open.

2-8-2021  As of today, groomers have been out on all trails. Railroad grade from Mann Rd. to Posen have been gone over. Snow thin from Posen to Metz. Ride accordingly.

2-7-2021  BRRRRR Cold out there!!!  Had -4 @ 8am north of Rogers City.  Elk connector-trail 9 south of Millersburg, was groomed last night. Groomer operator said it groomed up really well. Caution south of Aviation Rd., on gully hill, not much snow on it.!!

2-5-2021  Just heard from our trail boss, 2 groomers are out tonight , mostly panning Big Cut- trails 99 and 990, Silver Creek, Black Mountain 99, since snow is  dry.

2-5-2021  It actually happened!!!  We got snow!!  Guessing 4″ north of Rogers City, only a guess since I haven’t been out to measure. As always, snow depths vary in different parts of the trail system.

2-1-2021  Nope, nothing to report. Temps in 20’s and 30’s with no snow!! Stay tuned!!!!

1-28-2021  Nothing new to report!! No measurable snow since 1-22-2021

1-23-2021 Our groomer barn in Millersburg will be open Sunday with heat on!!!! Tables set up for social distancing. Also available is masks and hand sanitizer.

1- 22-2021 Yesterday, north of Rogers City, we received approx. 2″ of snow. Not enough to do anything, but certainly is a start!  A report from a club member that rode today, snow conditions almost vary mile by mile. There is snow in the woods, but less in open areas.  There is logging S. of 68 on trail 990 by the gated area .Silver Creek/Big cut,  rails99 and 990 have been rutted by a big truck. Ruts are deep and will need a lot of snow to even trail out. Be alert to logging and changing trail conditions.

1-21-2021  Still nothing new to report. Got a LIGHT dusting on Tuesday, didn’t even cover all the bare spots.  Guess what?? It is 39 degrees north  of Rogers City right now with the sun out!! Bare spots are now bare again. Still windy, but has calmed down some. Will post again if/when we get snow!!

1-13-2021 Nothing new to report. Had freezing drizzle on Mon. night and Tues am, no new snow.  Not good at present for riding!! Stay tuned!!!!

1-6-2021  An FYI.  Snow north of Rogers City getting scarce and very wet!  I happened to fall in our yard while taking down our outside Christmas decor down.  Believe me, pants were very wet when I got up!! Need more snow!!!

1-2-2021  GROOMER BARN IN MILLERSBURG IS OPEN!! Stop in and get warm-heat is on. Some club members are there.

1-2-2021 Groomer was out last night to do trails 99 and 990 (in Big Cut), trail 99 in Silver Creek and Black mt. Remember it is still early season riding, watch out for non frozen water holes.

1-1-2021  Happy New Year!!  Not much to report.  Have snow on the ground, not grooming yet.  Colder this am, upper teens. Keep dancing!!

12-28-2020  JUST IN- Our club has decided to open our barn in Millersburg, since the restaurant across the street is not open, So if you are riding in the Millersburg area this weekend and see the groomers outside, come in and get warm!  Heat will be on.  All the club asks is a donation to cover the heat and electricity. Tables and chairs will be set up.  There is no bathroom facilities in the barn, so you will have to go to gas station or trail head to use their facilities.

12-28-2020 Guess I haven’t posted lately, but with very minimal snow on the ground, kinda forget to post.  Woke up today with maybe 2″ of that white gold, at least north of Rogers City.  Plows have been by.  Don’t know consistency of the snowy, so don’t know if it is grooming snow. Know the guys are ready to get out!!. have had some cold nights, so the water holes may have set up.  Still early season riding, be careful out there!

Remember the groomer has the right of way, riders/machines are the ones that need to pull over and give them room to pass!!

12-19-2020  Has been snowing for most of the morning north of Rogers City.  Have gotten 2-3″ of that white gold! Remember, still is early season riding!! May still be water holes as the ground isn’t all frozen yet.

12-16-2020  Groomer was out finishing Silver Creek-99 and to the mountain -994. He reported that there were water holes on Mountain trails.  Since the DNR didn’t get out pre season to grade, groomer operator did some grading also.  Still early season grooming/riding.  Be alert out there!!

12-15-2020 our groomer guys have been out today and yesterday. All trails groomed or panned, except part of silver Creek and Black Mt. Snow depths and conditions vary through out the trail system. Over all early season riding.

12-13-2020  It actually happened!.  We got snow, very wet snow. Temps in 20’s.  Saw 8 sleds go by our house on their way to the trail.  Got a report from a club member that went south on Elk Connector and saw quite a few side X sides. They are tearing up the trail and leaving deep ruts!!  Trails are certainly not ready for travel!  Only trail that are mixed trails, are some of the ones at Black Mt. Certainly, not the ones in the Elk Connector, so wheeled vehicles are not allowed!!

Because of high winds the last few days, there may be trees down. Be alert when out on the trails!!.

12-5-2020  Its getting closer, our club has been out signing and brushing. The Rogers City connector has a small reroute due to a large water hole. Watch for signs!!

Another reminder, our club now has a website- hover over our club patch and you will go to our site or type in

GROOMER HAS RIGHT OF WAY!!!! There are still sledders out there that think a groomer should get off trail so they can pass!! Just look at the size of these rigs and know they can’t and remember, they are out there so that you can have good trails to ride on! Give them a THUMBS up when you pass!!!!!
