Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 0 - 12 inch trail base
Date of Report: March 16, 2018
Price County snowmobile trails are in poor to good condition. Some areas still have a good base but the conditions are spotty. There are many bare spots and sections where the trail is bare in logging areas, and road routes are bare. Trails in wooded areas are best, so trailering to a parking area along the trail away from town is recommended if you plan to ride. The trails are icy in many areas and especially on corners, and approaches to road crossings are thin or bare in many areas. With temps in the 40s predicted for the next few days, expect to encounter muddy and wet areas and deteriorating conditions. Tuesday was the last day of trail grooming. During March, conditions can improve with snow or deteriorate quickly with sun and warm temps. The trails remain open through March 31, 2018.
Several miles of trail are open for winter ATV and UTV riding. The Price County portion of the Pine Line Rail Trail (Prentice to Ogema), Snowmobile Trail 189 (Ogema to Timm’s Hill), and Snowmobile Trails 116, 181 and 118 (Prentice area loop) are open to winter ATV and UTV riding when the trail is officially open to snowmobile use and the temperature is 28 degrees or colder.
Some Price County trails are on private land. The use of the private land is a PRIVILEGE, not a right. Please stay on marked trails, especially across fields. There have been many complaints from landowners due to snowmobilers not staying on the trail and riding all over their fields. To avoid having these TRAILS CLOSED, PLEASE respect the private land that is open to snowmobiling and stay on marked trails.
