MUNISING, Mich. (AP) - Mechanical problems with two snowmobile trail grooming machines in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula could cause delays in trail maintenance efforts, officials said.

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 to help groom trails in the area.

“Until … grooming operations are back in full swing, snowmobilers should expect to see a delay in grooming of some area trails and plan accordingly,” DNR recreation specialist Dan Moore said in a statement.

The Seney Snowmobile Association, the Big Bay De Noc Snowmobile Club and the Schoolcraft County Motorized Trails Association are handling some grooming needs, the DNR said. Information on Munising-area trail statuses and conditions is available from the DNR.
