Snow Cover: 1-5 inches
Date of Report: January 30, 2017
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
The forecast calls for about 4-6″ today and that is wonderful news for the Northwoods! The groomers will be out in full force when we get 4-6″!
Sawyer Co trails are OPEN and as of this morning (prior to this current snow fall) the trails have anywhere from a 0-5″ base depending on whether you are on the wooded trails or in the open trails along the roads. The wooded trails are fair to poor. There are scattered bare spots along the roads but there has been dustings over the weekend which doesn’t account for much but does turn things white and the temps are colder so that white is staying. The lakes have at least foot of ice on them and are in fair conditions as they are smooth but slick.
There is one exception to the lakes, Lake Hayward has open water under the bridge along Hwy 77 and near the Market Place entrance, the entrance areas have been roped off so please for your safety, stay off of Lake Hayward.
The temps will continue to be in the teens as a high for the week and through the weekend, perfect riding weather!
Ashland and Bayfield County are partially open, Price Co is open, Washburn and Rusk Counties are closed. We will update on those counties with any change.
We will be updating trail conditions when this snow fall ends and we predict a good update!
Trail 36 from Flambeau to Price Co line is rerouted back to the old trail along Hwy W.
Trail 63 north of Seeley from Bodecker Rd to Bayfield Co line is CLOSED
Trail 5/27 from Tuscobia south to Rusk Co line is CLOSED.
Trail 6 from Tuscobia by Ojibwa north to the Chippewa Flowage, also CLOSED.
As always… thank you to the club members and volunteers for their hard work and to you for visiting and enjoying Sawyer County!
