Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 3-5
Date of Report: February 2, 2022
The groomers have been out non-stop working hard over the last few days! About every trail has been groomed in the last 24-48 hours. While we defiantly need snow, however the trails are actually laying down nice and flat! The groomers have worked their usual magic and pulled snow from the sides, timed the start and finish of grooming right when the temps are good to groom and the evening cooler temps are what they run into when finishing so their trails set. They are pro’s! They are doing what they can with what they are given!
Speaking of temps we will find our temps in the single digits for highs and negatives for lows through Friday. But we are snowmobilers, we thrive off the cold!! Saturday shows mid-twenties and Sunday high teens. Great riding weather! Friday shows a chance of snow, we’ll take anything Mother Nature brings! Do you snow dance!
Reports from around the county have continued this season to be quite consistent. Much of the county from the south east corner such as the Flambeau Forest, to the Tuscobia around Winter and continuing north through the Chippewa Flowage to the Seeley Hills and surrounding area, Moose Lake and to the Bayfield County line most groomers report their trails to be fair to good, some areas better than others. There will be rocks kicked up and some icy/bare corners but pleasantly surprised by how well they are holding up. As always, never judge the trails by the ones near and/or on the roads and those in the open, they will be dirty and have bare spots. Many of those are connecting trails so you won’t ride them long. Most trails are protected by the forest. The south west corner in the Birchwood area and to the Washburn County line has not quite as much snow so reports to be poor to fair and needs more snow. Lake riding is excellent!! Again, we defiantly need more snow that’s no secret but the trails are absolutely rideable!

Once again, a huge thank you to our groomers who have been working hard on the trails! Also this time of year with the hard work the machines are doing and the deep cold temps many machines will experience some break downs or become in need of service and attention so those same groomers and volunteers are maintaining these machines. It wouldn’t be possible without our team! Thank you to all the clubs and volunteers, the businesses who support the sport, donations and to all of you for making Sawyer County your riding destination!!
