Actually, the Houghton Lake area has had 14 years on record of no snow between the holidays... the last being 1999. There were three times in the 90s (99, 94, 90) and three times in the 30s.

But for the WHOLE state is likely more unusual.

Can we return our unused trail permits? :banghead:

My uncle was talking to the guy who runs/owns Lost Pine by Cadillac last year and he said that he keeps a record of snow conditions for the week between the holidays as well. He said that the majority of years there is no rideable snow there either.


December in Michigan (lower penninsula at least) is a hit or miss month for snow and has been for some time. It just sucks even more than usual this year because it is so warm it doesn't even feel like winter out there.
