Ironwood Michigan

The snow depth is reaching levels that we haven't seen since 2015. If you have not made plans to come north and ride our scenic trails you are missing out! The entire GRTA trail system is rated excellent. Groomers ran nearly nonstop this weekend. With more snow this week and good temps forecast, trail riding will be going on for a long time! Off trail snow depth is 30"-40", be sure to KNOW BEFORE YOU GO. If you don't KNOW you can ride off trail, don't follow tracks! Do your homework! Stay with our sponsor AmericInn Hotel Ironwood MI !!

The Porkies - Porcupine Mountains

WEATHER EVENT UPDATE: Porkies Rangers are reporting 2 to 3 feet of snow fell overnight at lake level in the park!

Here they are this morning at 700 feet above sea level, attempting to pack cabin trails that they had already packed yesterday. At this level, we know we have about 4 1/2 feet of snow on the ground.

The park rises another 1258 feet above where they are in this photo. We can only guess how much snow there is in the higher country.

The County Road Commission is out working on clearing roads and advises everyone to be patient as they are running out of areas to put the snow.

We would also ask patience with our grooming of the ski trails for the weekend as it is going to take time.
