Hayward Sno-Mads Snowmobile Club and Musky & Sno Club clubs, trail and grooming captains will continue to do the major clean up with contractors over the next few days and they will follow through with groomers. A target date for the trails such as 15, 77, 31, 8, 3, 21, 5, 63, along with other connectors which would be in the town of Hayward to the Seeley Hills to the north and west towards Nelson Lake, east towards Round Lake to Spider Lake areas to Lost Land area to Moose Lake area to the Bayfield Co line should be cleared, opened and groomed by late Wed to Thursday. So riding the wooded trails from north of Round Lake to Bayfield (which is open) will we hope, be rideable this weekend.

Reports from Winter Huskies Snowmobile Club are that Tuscobia has the big debris cleared and cut. They are asking if any riders would like to ride and clean up branches and down debris, specifically from Winter to the Price Co line. A saw may be nice to have with. The trails that spur off of the Tuscobia have had lots of large trees bent down onto the trails creating lots of walls so they continue to work on those to make passable not just for riders but for groomers. There is not a target date on those to be ready at this time.

Lakes; Lost Land Lake and Barker Lake are staked, there could be down stakes from the snow. Crews are packing the Flowage Tuesday and Wed in hopes of packing that snow and allowing it to freeze to create more ice but at this time there was not enough safe ice to stake, they continue to check daily so we will update when we here. Other area lakes have similar reports, not yet enough ice yet and a lot of slush and water so even if there was enough ice it is very difficult to get through. Again, crews that have a lot of knowledge and experience are packing lakes and swamps safely during the day in hopes of creating/freezing more ice at night so please do not ride the lakes until they have been declared safe, staked and open.

These are the only updates we have so far, many crews are out on many trails clearing and we will continue to share all and any info as it comes in. Until then please watch for updates and always ride with caution while they clean up as well as after as there most certainly will be branches that will continue to fall over the next few weeks.
