General Discussions: ASK John: Making early season reservations?

A couple of buddie and I are thinking about reserving a room in hurley,wi the weekend of december 12-14. And we are planning on riding north into the UP. I was just wondering if we should be concerned about not having enough snow that early? I know theirs no guarantee but just wondering if its been good in past years??

Mass City, MI is where I would head. The percentages are more in your favor up there.

I would be concerned about no snow in Hurley for sure, based on the last few years. Twin Lakes, on the other hand, rocks, normally, for early season. I would recommend staying at Krupp's Resort. Here are a few pics last year on November 30th.

Ooops, sorry about that big picture.

You better make sure the trails are open. The DNR has had those stupid late season deer hunts for the past two years. Last year they had good snow but the trails were closed.

live4this6-

Sorry, I did not notice that this was in the Ask John. Anyway, some very good advice given here. Early season snow can be touch and go anywhere in the Midwest. Best to stay flexible at that time of the year if you can. Most places are not so booked up at that time of the year that you cannot just show up and get a room, but I would call first just to be sure! At any rate, reservations in early December are not as crutial as they are once we get past Christmas.

As for your best chances for snow to play in. I would agree that from around Rockland NW up into the Keweenaw would be your best bet. If we are having a good year, then you will have your choice of anywhere in the Northwoods.

-John
