In the summer, they cater to amateur and experienced horseback riders, fly fishers looking for fresh trout, canoers and kayakers. In the winter, they are all about snowmobiling, with ...

The Houghton Lk Ride From the Back of the Pack

Posted by:

I want to personally thank Chad for preparing, executing, and sharing with all of us who were able to attend the HOUGHTON Lake Club Ride 2015. Chad spent hours and hours making plans and scheduling activities for members to enjoy. But at the last minute he had to reschedule everything as well as face the Polar Vortex and -28 degrees temps on Friday morning.

Snowy St. Ignace

Posted by:

The winter of 2011-12 will probably go down in history as the winter the Snomads set a record with ride cancellations. It started with the Shakedown Ride and continued on and off for most of the season. Seeing an opening the first weekend in March I decided to put together my first ride. I chose St. Ignace as Mary the kids and I had been riding out of there several times a year and really enjoyed the area. After many ...
