Snow and Trail Condition Updates
As of 2/1/22:
County trails are open with occasional closures.
Hawkins Brat Feed was a success! It's so great to see how genuinely happy everyone is at these events. What's the saying? You don't know you're in the good ol days until they're gone. Well soak it up folks. We have an event in Rusk Co every weekend in February for you to ride out and share that snowmobiling happiness. Next up, Ladysmith Driftbusters Snowmobile Club Chili and Pulled Pork at Tee Away Golf & Grill 2/5/2022!
From Ladysmith Driftbusters (Ladysmith): Steve was out late last night. Ladysmith to Conrath, JS Supper Club & Catering, The Pickled Gill, Cedar Lodge, Flambeau River Lodge, Adventures Resort-Bar, Grill, and Campground and to Ingram was ALL GROOMED YESTERDAY. Everything except the north end which was groomed Wednesday and does not usually see as much traffic. Enjoy and ride safe!
Please check the Ride Rusk page for confirmation on your trail routes and for updates on trail maintenance and grooming.
Cross Country Ski Trails
Blue Hills Trails report:
A stiff wind deposited a mild amount of trail litter the past 24 hours - most noticeable when skiing through sections of trails bordered by pines or hemlocks - but all things considered, quite tolerable. The trail litter adds to the challenge: flick-a-stick as you ski, it'll challenge your eye-hand coordination. On the East Side trails, skating conditions are very good. The classic track is fairly deep, firm, and fast.
On the West Side, conditions on the north half are good. Excelsior Road (West Side) is in good to very good condition - the snow cover on the east half mile of Excelsior Road is thin, but you can use your good skis the full length of Excelsior Road.
99% of the East Side trails are open and groomed for skating; more than 3/4 of the East Side trails are groomed for classic skiing. On the West Side, the north half of the West Side is groomed for skating & classic skiing - and Excelsior Road is groomed for skating and and classic skiing.
READ THE IMPORTANT UPDATES REGARDING THE STATUS OF THE WEST SIDE TRAILS. West Side logging was completed January 18th.
Ladysmith Area Trails report:
Sisters farm trail report. Jim groomed the skate lane on the East side and looks good. We did not have enough snow to redo the track on either side of the road. Dave groomed the west side trails for bikes and snowshoeing and should be excellent for fat bikes. Track needed to be skied in but should also be good. Enjoy!
