Snow Cover: 15" - 16" in the woods
Date of Report: January 10, 2017
Groomers are out tonight as I type. Snow started about 6:45 AM and came down for about 12 hours. Winds picked up late afternoon and the snow is blowing. We received a good 8″ from Sunday night until now.
Today 8 of us rode to Tomahawk & back. Conover trails were smooth with fresh snow that kept adding up. By the time I got back this way, with the snow built up it was like riding on a cloud. Trails should be very good or better in the morning. Just watch for drifting in open areas.
Traffic was light on the way down & nearly zero on the way back. I’m sure the snow & low visibility had something to do with that. Forecast has a few more inches Wed night into Thursday. Then the temps drop below zero.
Twin Haven via the new trail; Trail is nice except for the last 3/4 mile where it turns off the grade. This section has now been groomed & is much better but still has new trail bumps.. For those running along the power lines N from North Twin boat ramp, you now have a stop sign at the grade, E/W traffic has the right of way.
The lakes are marked and pretty smooth now. Again, watch for drifting……
News and Reports:
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. Ride right & be safe.
