Marinette County Snowmobile Trail Report - January 15, 2019
DUN-GOOD RIDERS: The trails are open & groomed & in excellent condition. Snow covered ice base. Lots of happy riders this past week. Trails are in really nice riding condition , not that it wouldn't be nice for the snow gods to give us 4 or 5 inches but trails are still really good. Trails are open for snowmobiles and winter atv/utv use. Use caution around Kidd Lake, lots of logging in that area.
NEAR NORTH: North and West trails have been groomed and are in early season condition. The South and West trails have been panned. Trails groomed up to the swamps. The bottom line is we just need more snow for the trails and cold and freezing temperatures to freeze the swamps There is not much snow to work, with doing the best with what we have. Trails open for ATV's were allowed watch for signs.
PEMENEE RIVER RIDERS: : All of our trails are open and being groomed. I would rate our trail conditions as good. Most of the trails are open for atv's & utv's, but not all so follow the signs.
RANGER CITY RIDERS (snowmobile only): Our trails survived the busy weekend and are open with fair/good riding conditions. We have been out grooming/panning over the last week and beginning of this week and hope to have our full trail system groomed for the weekend. With the colder temps ahead it will allow us to groom across our swamp areas. There are some thin and icy areas thought the system and we could use some more snow so please ride with caution.
PLEASE NOTE LOGGING OPERATIONS: Our north end of the East Trail between Marek Road and Forest Road 404 is currently being logged and we are advising using caution through this area. This area is extremely icy and should ride with caution.
IRON SNOW SHOE: Trail Conditions: Early Season. Snow Cover: 4 to 5 inches in most areas.
Date of Report: January 14, 2019
Area Report: We had a great weekend. Lot of people riding. Great to see you all out there. Most people were surprised at how good the trails actually were. It's that good flat ice base that is basically keeping everything smooth. We were able to put on over 250 miles throughout the weekend…leaving from Crooked Lake. Conditions really have not changed. Trails north of Hwy C and western part of the system and down toward Crooked Lake seem to have the most snow on them. The mid section in the Twin Bridge Area, still has a hard snow base also. There is less snow, but it is rideable. The Newton Lake area remains the same with good riding there. The southeastern corner has the least amount of snow. There is a plowed field there, so not much can be done with it. The groomers were all out yesterday again throughout the entire trail system. Just an effort to make the trails nice with almost nothing to work with. WE NEED SNOW!!! Winter ATV/UTV use is allowed in some areas. Check with the club for more info on where that's allowed.
