All Washburn County Snowmobile Trails are open at this time. Trail conditions are fair with a 6 to 12 inch compacted snow base. It has been a difficult year for snowmobile trail maintenance; Our local clubs are doing the best they can. Significant warm temperatures and rain for days has been followed by 3 to 7 inches of new snow received on December 30th. Caution is advised throughout the trail system. Lake ice is still not safe at this time, including Long Lake and the Spider Lake Chain. Swamps and wet areas on the trail system are likely to have standing water in places. Some wet areas will not have been groomed with heavy equipment yet. Also, please be aware that constant trail grooming will be occurring throughout the week. Many trails will not be freshly groomed on January 1st.
