Cross Country Cruisers Trail Report 1-24-19 I am starting out on a sad note here today, we had a young 25 year old involved in a fatal snowmobile crash In Oneida Co Tuesday morning. He was operating a snowmobile on an unmarked snowmobile trail down South Stone Lake Road when he struck a closed metal gate. Our thoughts and prayers go out to this young man and his family and friends. On a positive note we have received 2 to 3 inches of light fluffy snow so far this week and it has helped sweeten our trails up and added to the Northwood’s Beauty! The colder temperatures are certainly preserving our base and most of the Cruisers trails are in good to very good condition! Trail 3 is good to very good, trail 5 is fair to good, and trails 6, 10, 11,17,47,51 and the Bear Skin are good to very good. Trail 70 in town is fair. The Bear Skin is thin on snow close to town but improves as you travel out. All trails have some icy corners so us some extra caution! We have been informed by the individual’s that mark Lake Tom and Lake Katherine that they both have been marked. There has also been a land bypass built off the canal and around the troublesome tunnel. Please stay by the markers and follow all signage! Along with all other Lakes in the Cruisers area please stay by the markers!! The trails are going to hold up well this weekend with the cold temperatures so there should be some great riding! Let`s all be safe out there and stay on the marked trails and Lakes! The clubs work very hard to make the trails safe for your riding enjoyment! Use caution in the corners and stay to the right. Ride Right Ride Safe!! Steve Wolfe
