Area Report: Snowmobile Trail Report – 3/26/14
All snowmobile trails are open, groomed, and in very good late-season condition. Our snowmobile trails have a good base and our dedicated volunteers will continue grooming as long as the conditions permit. The trails remain open through Mon., March 31. Road routes and areas where logging operations are underway are bare, but snow is predicted for Thursday night followed by an overnight low in the teens. Highs are predicted to be in the low-30s Friday and Saturday and mid-40s Sunday, with lows below freezing. Some barrels have been removed from area lakes; for your safety stay on the beaten path. There are deep holes where the barrels were removed and they cannot be seen due to snow cover. The lakes currently have a hard crust and are very rough in some areas.
There is no gas available at the Ogema One Stop which is closed indefinitely, advertised as business/gas location #75 on the trail map.
