Official Trail Report: All Washburn County Snowmobile Trails are open at this time. Trail conditions are excellent with a 9 to 16 inch base. Local clubs are out grooming trails the best they can! Caution is advised throughout the trail system as some lake ice may still not be safe, always be aware of ice heaves or rough patches. Please note that swamps and wet areas on the trail system are likely to have standing water and/or rough ice crossings in places. Some wet areas will not have been groomed with heavy equipment yet. Please be aware that some trail segments have been rerouted, to avoid wet areas. Bundle up & enjoy!
