Snowmobile Trail Report for Wednesday, January 15, 2014

If you’re wondering how much snow we got out of the storm yesterday – only a dusting. Neither of us rode today but with temps in the teens, no new snow and almost no traffic, trails today should be similar to yesterday so we’re leaving that report below.

 

Snowmobile Trail Report for Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Eagle River, Sayner and Lake Tomahawk trails. The Eagle River and Sayner trails I rode were freshly groomed making them packed in and smooth. St. Germain didn’t groom but their trails were still pretty smooth. I rode 2 Lake Tomahawk trails – one was groomed and nice but the other wasn’t groomed with plenty of bumps.

I’m giving trails an overall good rating. After Sunday’s warmer weather it has cooled down which is letting the trails set up better after the groomer goes over them. There are corners thin on snow on the insides and heard the carbides scraping on them but the groomers are doing their best to pull snow back onto them. You’ll see trails getting brownish from snirt. There are still lots of stretches in good to very good condition. These are smooth with good snow and most corners are holding. There are some excellent stretches that you’ll want to turn around and ride again. To find the best trails try to avoid main corridor ones, tight and twisty stretches or town trails. These will be more in the fair category. Lakes are overall nice but I saw a few areas of slush today. Also, be careful of truck ruts and where ice fishermen drilled holes on the trail only to leave frozen mounds.
