Default Up trip

I have been put in charge of planning our trip to Michigan so I want to run my thoughts by you folks that know the area and the mileage any advice will help.
We will arrive in St Ignace Sunday night 22nd leave Monday morning on sleds towards marquette or Christmas stay the night go next day to houghton area and ride then back to marquette/ Christmas. Next day head to brimley for the night. Last day of riding back to St. Ignace.
Can this be done in around 200 miles a day. Or use something better

That is all about 200 per day. The trip from Brimley to St. Ignace will be a lot shorter but the other legs will be fine depending on which route you take. Did a trip similar to that last year.

86 miles if you go through Rexton & Newberry then head to the falls, around 90 if you go through Hulbert & Paradise, not sure if the South trail has froze and been groomed, might want to check w the Paradise club on that route.

We rode this trip last Sat and went up through Rexton, then Newberry and came home the same way. Its a 200 mile round trip. We did make a detour through Trout lake in the way home but we took the swamp to get there so not a bunch more miles.

Thanks. I'm hopping to bring a crew up from Green Bay for their first ride on the East end of UP. Hoping the cold and snows return soon so it will make a good impression on them.
Doing the snow dance ...
