Reported By: Price County Tourism Department
Date of Report: 02/03/2016
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 7 – 16 inches
Area Report: The trails are groomed and conditions range from very good to fair. Our area received 3 – 4 inches of new snow overnight. A two-mile connector trail southwest of Phillips, a section of Trail #80, is closed between Int. 99 & 100 indefinitely. Some areas of trail may still be a bit bumpy due to minimal snow cover or the groomer being too heavy to get through some swamp areas. Most lakes have been marked; stay on the beaten path as there may still be thin ice, slush or frozen ruts on some lakes. Visit our website for detailed trail condition reports including trail closures, caution areas and logging operations.
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.
