Snowmobile Information:

The Northern Hornshoe Club will start panning today. We have about 12″ on the ground now with a projection of 8-10″ heavy, wet snow tonight. I may be in the groomer Monday, and we should have a better idea by then if we are go for launch on the 15th, or not. Trail 1, Stearns Lake Road, has a nice icy cap right now thanks to the ground being warmer when it snowed. I pushed some snow for the neighbors two days ago, and the ground was not frozen. That, and warm weather projected for next week, will make it interesting for sure. I follow a couple of local groups from Fence Lake, and Vilas County. This morning one person asked if trails are open, and another responded, ” Join a club and find out.” That is good advice. I am a part of two clubs. Even if you do not have opportunity to be active, you learn a lot about what it takes to make our sport great. Landowner relations, signing, brushing, grooming- all volunteer. We work with the tribe, our township, and our county. We also have relationships with local business that help support. I have gone to the Vilas County Alliance meetings, and I hear what more great volunteers do working with the state. It is an amazing group of people. But at any rate, I will post trail updates as we get closer to the green flag. Mark
