Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: Minimal
Date of Report: February 3, 2021
It looks like all of your snow dances could pay off! As of this morning, the forecast is 6-8″ throughout the day tomorrow and into Friday. This would make a vast improvement to our current trail conditions. Keep your fingers crossed and we’ll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, we’ve been grooming nightly and will continue to do so. We are not always able to cover our entire system every night, but we are out there. The majority of our trails are still in really good condition. Heavily traveled sections are in poor to fair condition simply because there is nothing but snirt left to work with. Trail 15 between intersections 201 and 202 is in desperate need of new snow, so should be greatly improved over the next couple days.
There are always questions about the portage between Plum and Star lakes. Remember, lake crossings are not officially part of the trail system, and that includes the portage. Therefore, this is a NON-FUNDED section of trail. We are still trying to groom this 2 – 3 times per week even though we get no funding for it.
Speaking of funding; please join us at Murmuring Waters on Saturday, Feb. 6 from 2:00 – 5:00. This is our annual chili dump fundraiser. Delicious chili and many raffle baskets! You won’t be disappointed!!
- Logging operations are continuing throughout the northwoods and in many areas where snowmobile trails are located. Loggers have first priority! PLEASE be respectful of them and make every attempt to stay out of their way. DO NOT engage with them. Loggers have a legal right to close any snowmobile trail where they are working. They are being cooperative with the clubs and working with us the best they can. PLEASE do not give them reason to close the trails.
- The trail base remains thin. Be prepared for some scraping, rocks, and ruts.
- Hintz’s North Star Lodge is currently closed. Therefore, we have closed the trail leading to their establishment. If and when they are open for business, we will reopen that trail. Please respect them by not riding across their property.
Thank you for your patience and support while we await more snow. Ride Right and Stay Safe!
