Looks great!

Groomers Chris F, Jack and Chris H reported in that all the trails remain in Good to Excellent (as per Jack, even Very Excellent) condition! Flat and smooth with a good, deep base. Groomers are out nightly to keep those trails just like you like them flat, smooth, and fast... Enjoy!

As always, ride safe and bring them home alive!

Great story...

Feb 23. Our first awesome story for today: We had a man come in today with a hook for his right hand. Our neighbor across the driveway, with the 906 Hunting Company store, Wayne Flatt, heard he was here (he saw Charlie at the Post Office) and stopped in to talk to Matthew. Matthew is going to school for engineering and Wayne's business is fabricating, so they are going to get together to come up with a better idea for being able to ride snowmobiles and bikes for people who need to use their left hand. Wayne is working with the prosthetic people in Ann Arbor about new designs, since his accident, so this could be a great collaboration for a lot of people!

[02/21/15]   Who is at the Lincoln Cat 500?


Blizzard in the UP today! I think the ONLY way to keep warm is with PolarTec. We know how to manage LAKE EFFECT! This is our kind of weather.

Is this also Brockway Mountain Drive in Copper Harbor?

Like most snowmobilers, I know a helmet is a must for safety, warmth and to be legal. BUT, I didn't really consider the importance of a HIGH quality helmet until I had an accident. Klim's F4 aerospace fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar helmet truly was a little life saver. On a recent snowmobile trip I had a small 'get-off' and my head hit a patch of ice.

Top of Brockway Mountain Drive is pretty hard to beat!

Backcountry, beautiful and what some of us consider badass... in a good way. All these could describe the women and the terrain they took on at Diva SnowGear's backcountry clinic in Copper Harbor, Mich.



In the mountains the Summit X with T3 doesn't compete with other sleds -- it competes with helicopters! Sled-Skiing Day for Dave Norona!

Sounds good!

Munising Snowmobile Trail Report (1/15/15): All trails were groomed except for Miners Castle last night. Everything looked good and flat and should be great for riding.
