Trail Report: Cable
Reported By: Susan F
Date of Report: 12/03/2013
Trail Conditions: Trails Closed
Snow Cover: 6 1/2 inches
Area Report: A three day snowstorm has just arrived in the Cable area and delivered over 6 1/2 inches of new snow overnight. Snowfall has lighten up a bit today but the storm will really crank up overnight and forecasters are predicting an additional 10-14 inches of snowfall from today through Friday morning bringing storm totals to between 16 and 21 inches! Due to a late T Zone hunt the snowmobile trails will not officially open until December 16 but the clubs will be out doing maintenance and rolling of the trails starting today. Another great reason to support local snowmobile clubs! 4-6” of ice is already reported on area lakes and below 0 temps after the storm will help freeze swamps and add to the ice depths on those lakes. The brand new snowmobile maps (with trails changes) are ‘hot off the presses’. Email us with your name and address and we will have one heading your direction ASAP! Once the trails do open, excellent riding conditions are expected. Winter is off to a great start!
