Trail Report For: Ashland County – 12/29/2014

Trail Report: Ashland County

Reported By: Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce

Date of Report: 12/29/2014

Trail Conditions: Trails Closed

Snow Cover: 4-12″

Area Report: The snowmobile trails throughout Ashland County are still officially CLOSED! However, snowmobilers are advised they may currently ride at their own risk. The trails will open as soon as weather permits.
Due to the warm weather the area had been experiencing, much of the snow cover was lost, but new snow of up to 8-10 inches fell in the southern portions of Ashland County over the Christmas holiday.
Groomers are once again out packing the trails, but there is still a lot of standing water in some places. The Ashland area forecast for this week (Dec. 29-Jan. 2) now calls for colder temperatures with highs below freezing, so the outlook is favorable for the trails to open soon.
Please continue to check our website, www.visitashland.com, for detailed reports or, starting sometime soon, call the Snowmobile Report Hotline at 1-800-284-9484.
The Tri-County Corridor, a 62-mile stretch of abandoned railroad right-of-way running from Ashland to Superior, is always OPEN. The Corridor was last groomed Dec. 19 and was in great shape at that time, according to Bill Chandler, president of the Ashland County Snowmobile Alliance.
