A few more inches of snow fell earlier this week, and has made it possible to open more Snowmobile Trails in the County. Groomers have been out and are reporting mostly fair to very good conditions. Cross-country ski trails are also groomed and in good to excellent shape.
Snowmobile Trails -
Tomorrow (January 18) at 8am, more than 3/4 of the County will be open for snowmobiling. The Southwest, Northwest, and Northeast Quadrants will all be open -with some exceptions. This means that most trails West of Highway 27 are open, and trails East of Highway 27 and North of Highway 8 are open. See the quadrant map below for reference. Exceptions to these quadrants opening - Corridor Trail 31 from the Village of Bruce to Dejung Rd. is closed. There is also a bypass trail on Trail 99 about 5 miles north of Flambeau Lodge - to avoid the work of some beavers - look for caution signs and the bypass trail in this area. Corridor Trail 25N from Hawkins to Sawyer County, and Trail 116/Corridor Trail 16 from Ingram to Hawkins and into Price County, also remain open.
This weekends Snowmobile Event by the Flambeau Area Trailtenders at Flater's Resort will be accessible by snowmobile. http://ruskcountywi.com/event/flambeau-area-trail-tenders-snowmobile-club-brat-chili-feed/
