Snow Cover: 5-9
Date of Report: February 3, 2017
Townsend – Red Arrow Snowmobile – ATV Club – Brrrrrrrrrrr!! it’s -3 degrees this morning in beautiful downtown Townsend, and the trails are in VERY GOOD RIDING CONDITION. They look like they froze down nicely. Just remember that under that fresh snow is some ice, so be careful.
Lakewood – Paul Bunyan Snowmobile Club – The trails are groomed and are in very good to excellent condition. We will be grooming all weekend long. Have fun on the trails but watch out for ice on the corners.
Bagley and Brazeau – Joyriders Trails -Trails are back open on Feb 1st at 7:00am. They are in good condition but there is a problem on the Butler Springs trail. Logging has been taking place on Butler Springs Rd and will continue for the next few weeks. The loggers removed most of the snow on the trail. Since it has snowed the groomer drivers have been out on this trail trying to re-groom it. We don’t know if the loggers will come back and take off the new snow that has recently fallen. If you are familiar with the ATV trail that runs next to the snowmobile trail, through Butler Springs, you, can use this trail. If we continue to have a problem with keeping it groomed, we plan to start grooming the ATV trail. Also we have problems grooming in other areas with thin ice. On the Pipeline and a few other areas the ice is to thin for the groomer to groom but safe for snowmobiles to ride.
Gillett Sno ATV Riders – Trails are in very good condition. Groomers were out Tuesday and groomed again today. 2-3 inches of snow expected for Saturday. Should be great trail riding for a while.
Chute Pond Snowmobile Club – Chute Pond trails are open, and grooming on a regular basis. Our trails are in good condition, with an icy base- which with normal traffic gets exposed in and around the corners.
Please be aware that the groomers may be out day and night as needed to keep the trails in shape. Please watch out for the groomers, and give them space when you see them.
Expect a few rough and bare spots, possibly some standing water and slushy spots, and probable icy areas, especially near the corners. Please ride with caution- and stay on the marked trails. Enjoy your ride.
Oconto Falls – Sno Jokers Trails – Trails are OPEN.
Lena Snow Drifters – Trails are CLOSED.
Chase Sno-Chasers – Trails are CLOSED.
