Reported By: Price County Tourism Department
Date of Report: 01/11/2016
Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: 3-11 inches
Area Report: Snowmobile trails are officially open, but they are not groomed due to a lack of snow and some areas being impassible due to swamps or creeks not being frozen. Lakes are not marked for the most part and are currently NOT safe for riding due to thin ice in some areas. Club members have been out riding some trails in preparation for panning and/or grooming, and have reported high water conditions on some trails and trees down on others due to wet swamps preventing clubs from getting to them. Temps are predicted to be colder this week which may allow club members to at least start panning the trails. Anyone who wants to ride the trails can, but be cautious as conditions are rough, rocky and wet in some areas, and you may want to take along a saw to cut trees and remove them from the trail so you can get through. Visit our website at www.pricecountywi.net to view detailed trail reports. The trails remain open to snowmobiling through March 31, 2016. Winter ATV and UTV riding is allowed on approximately 100 miles of trail; visit our website for more ATV trail information.
