Reported By: Sayner/Star Lake Barnstormers
Trail Report: Sayner
Date of Report: 02/03/2016
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 3 inches (+/-) on the trail
Area Report: –
The latest “winter storm” was not the snow dumping behemoth that was forecasted. We did however get about 3 inches. Even just 3 inches is a big blessing to the northwoods trails. It will return the areas to good that got ruined this past weekend bu upper 30s & sun. There is also more snow in the forecast for almost everyday for about the next week. It will also be colder which will help hold what we have.
From here on out – the ice on the trails will be as bad or worse than ever. So caution is advised in all corners. Even just 3 new inches of snow on our lakes will push the ice down in some areas and cause some slush pockets. Be ready for that slush and do not let off the throttle. Stay by the markers when crossing any lake.
VERY IMPORTANT: The logging that was going on up by Star Lake might finally be finished in that particular area. However, they can move in and start logging in another area with no warning. Be ready for it. If you come across another logging operation anywhere – DO NOT CONFRONT THE LOGGERS!!! There was an incident earlier this year where a couple riders confronted a logger and it had to get smoothed over. These loggers are not out there trying to make life difficult for or inconvenience snowmobilers. They are out there trying to make a living. Due to a change in the law, they now have the right to shut snowmobile trails down in order to complete their logging, if they so choose. If snowmobilers bother them too much – thats exactly what they will do – shut the trail down until they are done logging. If it takes them all the way to and/or past March – goodbye to that section of trail for the season. So PLEASE – be patient, give the loggers room, get the heck out of their way, and give them the utmost courtesy possible.
