Snowmobile Trails

Rusk County Trails report:

(via Facebook 01/24/23)

Ladysmith Driftbusters Snowmobile Club:

All of our trails have been groomed since the weekend.
Rod did Ingram & Big Falls leg Sunday.
Steve went to Conrath Sunday.
Nate did the Local's Loop plus Cedar & Flambeau legs yesterday.
Bill will be out today making another run down to Conrath.
Jim will hit Ingram trail again tomorrow.
Flambeau River Lodge opens at noon this Friday.
Hawkins Sno-Hawks Brat Feed is this Saturday from 11-4.
*27 north of Cedar Lodge & 99 north of Flambeau River Lodge remain closed.
Trail 27 is nearly ready. We are hopeful to be done with machine work today so we can clean it up and pack it ahead of the deep freeze. The clearing crew will move over to 99 after 27 is cleared. With a little luck and a lot of work we're hopeful to have them open and groomed ahead of our Chili & Pulled Pork Feed Saturday, Feb. 4 @ JS Supper Club & Catering.
Weyerhaeuser Snowmobile Club:

Cross Country Ski Trails

Blue Hills Trails report:

(update as of 1/22/23)

Very good skiing in the Hills Saturday, loads of fun. Check out a few Saturday photos with this message.

However, the skate deck wasn't perfect on all trails, so I asked our groomers if they had the energy and time to fine tune things Saturday evening. They Said Yes. Hats Off to our groomers!

Saturday Evening Grooming

  • The Saturday evening plan was to remove the high spots at the side of the skate deck opposite the classic track (i.e., remove any tendency toward development of a sunken trough in the skate deck).
  • Some of the trails provided near perfect skiing Saturday -- our groomers will leave those trails as is.

Ski the Hills!

Ladysmith Area Trail Association report:

(via Facebook 01/20/23) Sister Farm Trail update. All trails were rolled Yesterday, East side trails for skiing were also groomed. They maybe a bit soft and we may have to run across them again today. The west side was rolled and will be tracked today for skiing, Fat biking should be pretty good but will be better by the weekend. Please snowshoe, Fat bike on Westside trails only and please no hiking without snowshoes on any groomed trails. Should be a great weekend to get out on the trails, Enjoy!
