Looks like best chance for SNOW is Wednesday, Christmas Day and the day after, Monday.

No grooming Sunday due to the cold temps so no report from Trail Boss, Brian Scheid this morning. Here are some current on going conditions.

  • Manske Swamp (portion of Trail 3) Open but not groomed. Beware of Ice Chunks.
  • WI River Bridge (portion of 10/13)  Open but not groomed.  Pretty smooth & frozen
  • Catfish Lake & Eagle Lake – Marked Closed

Grooming Schedule – Should be grooming everyday this week starting today, Monday. Weather permitting. Stay tuned!

Last not all Counties are open so please if you come upon a closed gate, fencing or signing please do not enter.

Keep THINKING COLD and Doin’ The Snow Dance! It’s working!

Did you remember to register your sled & buy trail passes?
