Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 1 - 15 inch trail base
Date of Report: February 28, 2018
Price County snowmobile trails are in good condition. Trails that were groomed this week are reported to be in very good to excellent condition. The trails have a good base in most areas, however, some corners may be icy, bare spots are starting in some open areas, approaches at road crossing are starting to become bare in some areas, and road routes are bare. Forecasters are predicting overnight lows below freezing with a chance for light snow on Thursday so we are hopeful the trails will hold up through this warm spell, but conditions can deteriorate quickly. Detailed trail condition reports can be view on our website at pricecountywi.net.
Some Price County trails are on private land. The use of the private land is a PRIVILEGE, not a right. Please stay on marked trails, especially across fields. There have been many complaints from landowners due to snowmobilers not staying on the trail and riding all over their fields. To avoid having these TRAILS CLOSED, PLEASE respect the private land that is open to snowmobiling.
Several miles of trail are open for winter ATV and UTV riding including the Flambeau Trail System, Solberg Trail, and Georgetown Trail. The Price County portion of the Pine Line Rail Trail (Prentice to Ogema), Snowmobile Trail 189 (Ogema to Timm’s Hill), and Snowmobile Trails 116, 181 and 118 (Prentice area loop) are also open to winter ATV and UTV riding when the trail is officially open to snowmobile use and the temperature is 28 degrees or colder.
You can order visitor information or maps from the Price County Tourism Department website, www.pricecountywi.net, or call 715-339-4505, plus you can listen to recorded trail reports or talk to the friendly Tourism Department staff.
