Snow and Trail Conditions Update
As of 2/10/22:
County trails are open with occasional closures. Come on up! We are wide open! 90% of trails have been groomed at least once this week. Groomers will be out tomorrow working new snow in too! Bruce, Hawkins, Ladysmith and Weyerhaeuser were running groomer hard yesterday. Nearly every trail has been groomed since the weekend except Sheldon and the Island Lake area -- pretty thin on the south half of the county. It looks like we may have dodged the warm weather bullet. Highest temp I saw in Ladysmith today was 33 and its starting to cool back down. Forecasts appear to have removed any breaks above freezing and even added some accumulating snow to the forecast later in the week. We have had tremendous turn outs to Rusk Co club fundraisers this year. Let's keep it rolling and pack Shep's Northshore Bar & Campground this Saturday 2/12 for the Neighborly Sno-Goers Snowmobile Club Chicken Dinner!

Cross Country Ski Trails
Blue Hills Trails report:
Today's skiers enjoyed 0.5"-1" powder topping the trails.
On the East Side trails, skating conditions today were very good to excellent. The classic track was set 10 days ago and was in good shape other than a few sections where it was heavily drifted.
On the West Side trails, conditions on the north half are good. Excelsior Road (West Side) is in good condition - even though the snow cover on the east half mile of Excelsior Road has been thin, you can use your good skis the full length of Excelsior Road.
98% of the East Side trails are open and groomed for skating; we try to place classic track on more than 3/4 of the East Side trails. On the West Side, all the available trails are groomed for skating and classic skiing.
Ladysmith Area Trails report:
Sisters farm trail update the west side trails where groomed today and tracks set. Bike loops also touched up. Bike trails are hard and fast. Thin base but trails are in good shape. Jim will likely touch up the East side for skate skiing.
