This is the Keweenaw Snowmobile Trail System Report for Monday, December 5, 2016.
Snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor officially open on December 1st but we’ll be starting the snowmobile season a little later than usual this year due to lack of sufficient snow.
As soon as conditions improve the Keweenaw Snowmobile Club will turn loose its fleet of groomers to get the trails in shape for the busy snowmobile season. We will update you as soon as something happens.
Any trail usage should be done with extreme caution as there is very low snow cover and there are rocks, stumps, branches, wet areas and hazards that have not been identified.
