Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report – : Rhinelander, Wisconsin – January 18, 2022

Reporter:Hodag SnoTrails
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: good base
Date of Report: January 18, 2022
Area Report:

We are still keeping up with the trails even with the challenges with a groomer down and lack of fresh snow in the last 7-10 days.  The groomers are running double-shifts to keep the trails as flat as possible.  With the lack of fresh snow, some of the “holes” can’t be filled in without tearing up the base we have.

Hopefully, the snow in the forecast is more than predicted, and we can get back on track with all our machines.  The drivers are being flexible in their schedules and making it work.  Stay aware at all times for the possibility of grooming activity.


Our lake crossings look good so far as no significant slush areas identified.


There is one trail closure on the Hodag Sno-Trails system: Trail H4 from Boom Lake to the intersection just north of River Rd. This is basically the “land” route to not running Boom Lake.  The trail is closed at this point.  We have been just notified that this is a permanent closure.  Running the lake is the reroute.  The club will continue to look for another “land route” but it probably won’t happen for this season.
