Snowmobile Trail Conditions

March 28, 2019

This is the last report from this office for the snowmobile season.  There is still plenty of snow in the North Country to enjoy some great spring riding so get out there if you can!  Note that North Country clubs have reduced their grooming hours due to temps and funding.  Most clubs in the south are closed.

Once again a big thank you to all involved with the trails this season.  Remember that it takes hard work and funds during the summer and fall to maintain the trails for next season; get involved with your local club!
