Snowmobile Trail Conditions

January 10, 2019

Trails in the upper half of the State have received several inches of new snow over the past few days helping to improve riding conditions.  Keep those snow dances going!

Please note that riders should still use caution and watch for open water bars and icy corners.

A reminder that landowners give permission for TRAILS (a designated route) on their property - off-trail/backcountry riding is not legal without written landowner permission.  Said permission must be in the rider’s possession while riding.

This report will be updated every Thursday.  On school vacation weeks we will do an additional update on Mondays.

If you do not see an area listed, then you should assume that it is CLOSED or contact the club directly.
