Snow Cover: 8-9"
Date of Report: December 19, 2016
All Vilas County trails opened last week, Thursday. We received another approximately 5″ Friday & Saturday. The snow was dry & fluffy but it was snow. Temps fell down below zero, so things set up pretty firm. Groomers have been out grooming the trails but I haven’t ridden yet. Tomorrow I will get out & have more complete report available.
Lakes have not been marked yet as far as I know. Stay off the ice until the lake trails are marked.
Don’t forget you need a WI trail permit to ride the state’s groomed trail system. Aggressive riding causes more trail damage than slower, less aggressive riding. Until the base gets built up & we get more snow to work with, groomers can only do so much to repair damage.
