Cadillac Pathway

UPDATED 1/29/23:

XC Trail -Received 2-4 inches of new snow.  Groomed again this morning and tracks are definitely improving.  Giving it a 7-8 out of 10.  

Winter Sports Trail

Groomed again this morning after getting 2-4 inches overnight.  East side still reporting very good conditions with a soft curve here or there.  West side was very soft on Sunday.  Would not recommend riding West until we can get out and groom again which should be Monday.   Support our volunteer grooming efforts today!

Snowmobile Report -

UPDATED 1/27/23

Base:1-3" inches

PAST 24 Hrs: 2-3 inches

More Details

Rode about 34 miles last night around Coyote, Caberfae and Crossroads. Groomed Coyote trail and "cut-off" trail out to Trail 37. Groomers will go out once and hit most everything today/tonight. Surprisingly there was a small/hard base still intact in most places, not seeing any snirt. Things aren't great, but they are rideable. More snow in the forecast, so ride right and be safe! Stay tuned for grooming updates.


Ice Fishing Report -

UPDATED 1/26/23

Most places are pretty good but still need to be careful with these mild temperatures. Any areas that drain in to the lakes like creeks are going to be suspect. Currently there is about 2-3" of fresh snow with more on the way! Stay tuned to updates from Pilgrim Village Fishing Shop.
