NE QUADRANT
Wednesday, February 10, 2016
Less snow to the NW near Superior. As of Feb 8 near Poplar, 3.2 inches of new snow and snow depth is 14.3. Only .15 inches of moisture in Sundays snow
As a result of the warm weekend and the bubonic plague running through our groomers the grooming schedule is a little different this week. With the can do attitude of the Brule River Riders most riders won’t notice much difference. All trails have been groomed since the weekend except 635 and the hilly section of 235. 635 is scheduled for grooming on Thursday. Conditions vary a bit but most trails are in very good condition or better. With the exceptions of lower snow levels towards Superior our trails held up well with the light Super Bowl Weekend traffic.
More details:
Most trails are very good condition or better.
Trail 1: Groomed Monday, scheduled for Thursday
Trail 2: (Tri-County Corridor) Groomed Monday between Brule & Superior. Groomer operator turned around at Moccasin Mike Rd in Superior. Scheduled for grooming Thursday

The Brule River Riders has something new for you! We have constructed a new club trail (235) through the Parkland area between trail #2 (Tri-County Corridor) and trail #35 (Wild Rivers Trail). This will connect the TCC east of Superior, past the Checker Board, west of downtown South Range and on the Stone Road to the Wild Rivers Trail. The trail is complete but could use a little more stump grinding, other than that is ready for this snowmobile season.
We have also a new club trail (635) between Lake Nebagamon and the Lake Minnesuing county boat landing. It could use a little more stump grinding to get it nice, but will be passable. Sad News: We have lost an easement on property near 18th Street Road, in Hawthorne. We will be back on our old trail to the 18th Street Road. We may be able to go back on the trail around the gravel pit next year.

SW QUADRANT
Trail 9 south of Moose Junction remains closed due to a serious hazard, it is dangerous and illegal to attempt going around the gate. Trail 935 is also closed at this time.
Trail 9 north of Moose Junction is open, ungroomed, still some water coming up in the larger swamps. Should be safe for snowmobiles, just not for the groomer.
Trail 5 is open, groomed, and in good condition.
Trails 925, 151, 118 in Burnett County are groomed and in good condition. No grooming is being done
on the swamp next to Highway 35 just north of the St. Croix River, safe for snowmobiles, not for the groomer. We did get enough snow in the past 36 hours to make up for what we lost over the weekend!
