Great news this morning.  All Vilas County trails will open today!  Got your sled gassed up & facing out in the garage? 

More SNOW yesterday with a total of 14 inches on the ground.   Grooming in full force building a base.   Spoke with the new President, Keith yesterday.  He told me trails in Early Season Riding.   Manske Swamp, Trail 3 and a portion of Trail 17S just south of the Paintball Field, Trail 7 have mushy spots.  Wisconsin River Bridge, Trail 10/13 heading west is good to go and tight.  Riding Christmas Day & will have a better report on all trails then.

Yesterday it SNOWED pretty much all day.  Not real heavy but another 4-5 inches.  Today the wind is supposed really pick up with gust of 45 MPH. From today to Christmas Eve night the wind will continue.  SNOW totals 8-15 north of Vilas which might clip the northwest part of the County.  4-8 for the rest of Vilas! Going to be COLD so dress warm, stop often, have a phone with you, and most important let someone know where you are riding.

Well you all did a great job DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!   Looking like a great opening day today!!!

See ya on the trails Christmas Day!!!
