Munising — Officials say mechanical problems with two snowmobile trail grooming machines in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula could cause delays in trail maintenance efforts.
The state Department of Natural Resources announced this week that the problem was with the Munising Visitors Bureau’s machines.
The Visitors Bureau partners with the DNR to groom snowmobile trails in the Munising area. Until the Visitors Bureau’s machines are fixed, the DNR plans to work with other snowmobile clubs that help groom Michigan trails to coordinate efforts in the Munising area.
The DNR says the Seney Snowmobile Association, the Big Bay De Noc Snowmobile Club and the Schoolcraft County Motorized Trails Association are handling some grooming needs. Information on Munising-area trail status and conditions is available from the DNR.
