Area Report:

Great news, all of our land trails are open. Trails are in excellent condition. We received a couple inches of fresh snow this week, which will provide some lubrication for the slides. We have a very hard base with a couple icy corners. It might be a good idea to install a set of ice scratchers to kick up some snow to cool your sled down. Road routes are snow covered, some corners have a little ice. We are grooming on a nightly basis.

Remember it is law to yield to the groomer.
This Saturday is the annual junker sled weekend race at the snowmobile park. Racing starts at 10am and will have award winning chili, fresh brats, prime rib sandwiches, cold beer and soda. Stop out and check it out. Checkout our Facebook page for all the details on those fun events.

Spirit, maple, townline, moccasin, round, crystal, island, and planting ground lakes are completely marked. Medicine and big stone lakes are partially marked. Stay within 10’ of the barrels to insure safe ice. If you don’t see barrels assume unsafe ice.

If you come across a tree that has fallen or something that you may see unsafe, please message us on Facebook. Please try and get the trail or the tin(trail identification number) that are located at all intersections.

Please be safe out there, it has been a horrific fall getting the trail system open this year with all the storms. We have thousands of hours getting trails ready for your safety and enjoyment.

If you like our trails, be sure to put a few dollars in our donation boxes in your favorite establishment, if you see something you don’t like, message us on Facebook and let us know, we will do what we can to fix it.
