Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: Good solid base
Date of Report: February 9, 2021
The trails are set with a good solid base are are holding up tight with the frigid cold. I would rate the trails as VERY GOOD. The only reason they aren’t “excellent” is the road routes are pretty thin, and we can’t control that. If you can overcome the cold, the trails are nearly perfect. Please be aware, we try to do all of our grooming at night, but there are instances that we have activity in daylight. Keep a watchful eye out for groomers on the trail. If you meet a groomer, please pull over and let them by.
We are continuing to groom on our regular schedule. All lakes are marked and ready for traffic. It is always beneficial to ride near the lake markers for the best ride. There are some signs of slush on the lakes, but they freeze up as soon as they form. There is more a risk of frozen slush than wet slush. Also, Boom Lake (Wisconsin River) does end up with roads being plowed across them. The club can’t keep up on marking all of them, so beware when running the river sections.
As always, please stay on the marked trails. It may sound like a broken record, but it is sooooo important for the life of our trail system that all riders respect the rights of our landowners (over 150 just on Hodag Sno-Trails system).
Stay safe, and ride like the wind. Bundle up, it will be a cold week.
