Western U.P. Trail Report – Western U.P. Bureau – 12/11

According to the National Weather Service in Marquette, Ironwood received the most snow in the U.P. during the recent storm from 10 pm Tuesday thru 7 am Thursday with 29.5″. Our season snowfall to day is around 42″… there’s more in some areas, less in others.
Groomers from the Gogebic Range Trail Authority, Gogebic Area Grooming and Watersmeet are all out working on the trails. Conditions will be “early season” as there are still wet areas(which all the snow is insulating)and the snow is very loose-warmer weekend temps should help in building bases – just want you to know this info so you don’t have any unrealistic expectations.
Keep in mind, although MI trails are open as of December 1st, they may or may not be groomed. WI Trails will open December 14th, snow and weather permitting.
