Groomer Report

Welcome to the 2022 snowmobile season!

Our tractors are still parked.  We recently received about 6″ of fresh snow on top of the ice we got from the ice storm.  We basically have ice and “Snirt”.  We will not be able to improve trail conditions without more snow to groom.

Remember this is an early system groom so the trails will have rough/thin spots.  Ride Right and slow down!  Think Snow!

Please watch for the groomers.

We have printed new maps and they are available from our sponsors.

We have identified a couple printing errors on the new maps.

The Fisherman’s Headquarters is number 19 and is on M-55 just East of the Wellston box, and there are two number 22’s. The Red Neck Yacht Club is shown as number 20 on the back and is the 22 ,West of Trail 3/6 on the South side of M-55. Sorry for the confusion.
We have also added another sponsor to our list.  They unfortunately are not located on the map due to timing.  The name is Batcke’s Manistee River Lodge,  Their store location is just West of the intersection of Seaman and Steinberg
 
We always can use additional volunteers. Working on the trails can be a very rewarding experience! Training is provided as required. 
 
In addition to the continued groomer requirements we have an immediate need for a Secretary. Our current Secretary has CRITICAL medical issues and a replacement is needed. Timing is right to learn the MDNR system
All inquiries are welcomed.

We would like to remind riders to stay on the trails. We do have some trails that go through private properties. Recently some landowners in other parts of the state have withdrawn their permission to use their property for trails due to riders leaving the trails.  One example is the trail between East Jordon and Charlevoix. We do not want that to happen here.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Our Groomer Barn, constructed in 2014 stores our groomers and other equipment.  Both the barn and our two tractors and operators will aid us in keeping the trails in good shape.
