Some fresh snow, coupled with last week’s cold snap have really firmed things up. Temps aren’t too bad so some great riding is in store for you in Presque Isle. SnoBunnies do a nice job grooming, so c’mon up!
Very exciting to see our volunteer groomers out there getting things ready. Fingers crossed for potential opening 12.17.17
Stop by Presque Isle’s Olde Time Community Christmas this Friday from 6-8pm at Pipke Park. Horse drawn sleigh, bonfire, S’mores, Christmas Cookies, Hot Cocoa and Coffee. Ornament making demonstration for the kids and a special visit from Santa. All capped off by the release of 50 sky lanterns. See you there!
Our Sno-Bunnies members are busy finishing up signing, brushing, tree and branch cutting for Inspections, to begin sometime the first week of December. We are in need of COLD weather to freeze up swamps and other wet trail areas — our earliest possible opening date is Friday, December 12. We’ll keep you posted!

Report from Presque Isle-Winchester Sno-Bunnies
Hello Sledders!!!!…..3-4 inches of “NEW SNOW” since Tuesday and some nice lake effect today to boot…along with two nights of 0 degree temps at night and another one this evening !!!!…. Last weekend, we got almost a foot as well…..
The low Lying areas have frozen up again…..Trails are rated “Good” as of today!!!!….We are grooming again tonight and tomorrow night…. We will monitor the low temps to see what we can do….. I would suggest to “Stop” if you encounter a “Wet” area and look to see the depth (Water is Clear)….If not too deep… stay on the Trail….Going off the trail is a bigger problem…If our groomers can cross the wet area……. your snowmobile will easily go through….or cut out on to the road to get around the “Wet Area”…….The temps are warming on Saturday (mid-30’s) and especially on Sunday with high around 50 degrees…..This Weekend might be your last chance to ride!!!….Come on up for some Late season riding!!!!
