Churning Rapids Snow Bike Groomers Seek Help

Posted on

The snow bike trail groomers will be back in action this winter at Churning Rapids, but they need some help to keep things going. The volunteer group maintains about eight miles of singletrack during the winter and just used a loan to purchase a used snowmobile (2004 Yamaha).

The group is collecting donations through the Copper Harbor Trails Club, since that organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Donations can be made via a link on the group’s Facebook page, in person at Cross Country Sport in Calumet, or Down Wind Sports and Rhythm Bike & Board Co. in Houghton, or by sending a check to the Copper Harbor Trails Club (P.O. Box 37, Copper Harbor, MI 49918).

In addition, the Michigan Tech Velovations Enterprise is designing and building new grooming implements for the club.

    Michigan Tech – Trails dragged. No tracks set. The base is mostly holding but there are thin spots and icy spots. There are several spots on Portage that are very thin.

    Swedetown – All trails dragged except the upper Powderhouse field and the Bear loops. Tracks are holding and the base is 6-10″ in most places. Very good early season conditions.
