Snow & Trail Condition Update - March 6, 2018

Snowmobile Trails  -
A heavy snowfall of 6" was received on Monday, which covered up the bare spots on the trails and brought them up to mostly good to fair condition. There isn't much base in some areas - in particular exposed areas and near roadways, but trails in the woods are in great condition. Anticipate "spring riding" with inconsistent trail conditions depending on where you are, but we expect trails to remain open and be very enjoyable through the upcoming weekend. Clubs will be out grooming this new snow, getting the trails into the best possible condition.

Be on the lookout for caution signs, detoured or closed trails- as that happens from time to time.  Otherwise, expect good sledding.
With the warmer temperatures open water may start to appear on stream and swamp crossings. No ice should every be considered safe, use caution.

Look for updates as conditions change, and we receive -more updates.

Cross-Country Ski Trails -
The approx. 6" (more on the West/Northwest side of County) of new snow rejuvenated the trails, and once groomed expect excellent conditions to be available.  Trails will change throughout the day with temperatures at or above freezing during the day and freezing hard overnight. A good base remains and with continuous grooming has the trails in excellent condition. Adjust your waxes as necessary.
All trails have track for classical skiing, and great groomed corduroy for freestyle (skate) skiing.

Blue Hills Trails
Ladysmith Area Trails
Don't forget the Blue Hills Trails and Flambeau Mine Trails (Ladysmith) have snowshoe paths, and the Sisters Farm Trails by Ladysmith are grooming for Fat Tire Biking

Christie Mountain downhill ski area is also open and reporting excellent conditions.
