Groomer Report


Trails are closed.  See you next season.



Storm dumped 12 inches of snow since Friday.  Trails were groomed Saturday and Sunday.  There has been great traffic and some areas are already down to dirt, but the trails are open.



High temperature and rain have closed the trails until further notice.

01/03/2018  11:30 pm.

YSSA trails groomed 01/01/2018 and still in poor condition.  It is snowing pretty good today and hopefully conditions will improve.  Snow is in the forecast for the next Thursday and Friday.


12/30/2017  3:00 pm.

YSSA trails (Martin, Gun Lake, Yankee Spring Golf Course to Cherry Valley) were groomed Tuesday and Wednesday.  Trails are in poor condition with some areas having 2 inches and other areas have 6 to 8 inches.

On 12/26/2017 trail from Middleville to Green Lake and Hillards was groomed.  The trail to Alto is closed east of Middleville as the State Game Area section will not open until January 1, 2018.  Conditions are poor with thin snow and more snow is needed.

If it keeps snowing the groomer plans to be back out Sunday 12/31/17 or Monday 1/1/2018.


12/16/2017 9:45 am.

The deck has 8 inches of snow and we had another 1 inch last night.  The sleds plow through what we have and there is no base under it.  So after the first few sleds it will get down to dirt in the corners pretty quick.  Be careful and watch for rocks.  Neither of the groomers have reported a groom yet.  They may go out and pan the trail soon to pack it down but will not use the cutters.  Have a good weekend.


New snow last night but trails still closed as snow is granular and blows out of the way not allowing pack for the required 4 inch base.


Welcome to the 2017/2018 snowmobile season!!!

Trails are currently closed due to lack of snow.  This includes, Wayland, Yankee Springs, Alto, Gun Lake, Martin, Hopkins, and Hilliards, and Middleville.

NOTICE: Minimum of 4 inches of snow on the trail required before open.  We are getting land owner complaints that sleds are on the trail too soon.  Please follow the 4 inch rule or we will lose the trail.  Keeping the trail is hard enough, so please don’t make this harder than it already is.  Thank you and see you on the trail 🙂

When we get snow, STAY ON THE TRAIL PLEASE!!
