Trail Report By: Lisa of Burt Lake Marina, Indian River Michigan

Indian River Trail Report: 
DATE:   Thursday, 2-25-16 
BASE:   0-5″ 
PAST 24 Hrs:   windy, light snow 
CONDITION:   Fair to poor

Sunshine and wind greet us this morning. The temperature is 26F. Cheboygan county didn’t get much snow: half-inch at Long Point (Mullett Lake) and 2 inches in Indian River. It drifted, too, so there are spots with bare ice and other areas of small drifts. I’ve seen several tree branches that have been blown down, too. Groomers did not go out. We just didn’t enough snow. Counties east of us: Presque Isle county, Montmorencey, Alpena received plenty of snow for decent riding. They also had wind, so be careful out there. Our local forecast is not calling for much more snow until Sunday. Remember, the “swamp” section of the Alanson Connector between Smith and Armock Roads is currently CLOSED due to unfrozen swamp causing sleds to get stuck. We have just detoured traffic so you’ll continue on the side of the road. The trail itself is still open-this is just a detour. Thank you for checking in with us here at Burt Lake Marina. -Leah
