Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Minimal
Date of Report: January 20, 2021
All of the Sayner Star Lake Barnstormer trails have been groomed in the past few days. We are still waiting on Mother Nature to give us something to work with. Until then, most of our system remains in fair condition. You can find many areas that aren’t bad to ride, but there is minimal base. The worst conditions are in the areas where logging operations continue, so be extra cautious.
If you are planning to come up this weekend, be prepared for heavier traffic and be especially cautious as the corners are getting icy and slick.
The forecast is for possible snow this coming Sunday/Monday, although they are already lowing the expectations of significant snowfall.
- 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.
- There is absolute minimum base on the trail. Be prepared to encounter many ruts, holes, rocks and little snow for hyfax lubrication.
- 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!
