Last Updated January 16, 2020
Looks like winter is returning! It’s been snowing off and on across much of the state since last night. Accumulations so far have been ranging from 4 to 6”.
As snow on the ground increases, clubs are packing and grooming, working on getting the trails back in shape. Colder temperatures tonight and tomorrow will freeze today’s wet snow into a great base. With 4-8” expected over the weekend trails will improve greatly. It’s anticipated that many areas will be opened up again over the upcoming 3-day weekend.
Please remember that gates in many areas were closed last weekend. Riders should expect to find some trails CLOSED and need to respect trail closures and stay off those trails!
Areas not noted in this report have received new snow and clubs will likely be out over the weekend with grooming equipment. Regular snowmobile trail condition updates will be posted here on Thursdays of each week. You can also get information on our Facebook Page, or by contacting the clubs directly.
