Reporter:Holly t
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 5+- inches new snow- Icy
Date of Report: March 18, 2023
Area Report:

March 18 2023 6:37am – 9 – High 20

All Conditions

Total of 5-6+- inches of SNOW.   Another inch or 2 moving in late morning.  Right now it’s snowing.  Looks like LES. Cold one this morning. 9 degrees. High of 20 today.  Then a March bounce up to 35 tomorrow during the day.  Teens at night until Tuesday then 20’s at night.  SNOW in the forecast for Wednesday & Thursday.  Get out & ride it when we got it.

As I have been reporting, it’s late season trails, conditions change fast. New SNOW has helped but trail are icy & rough.  Not a lot of traffic.  Woods trails are the best.  Rate ’em Good.  Icy road routes. Hope to ride again this afternoon.  Report tomorrow.

No grooming last night.

With the number of accidents & fatalities this season will keep reminding you:

When you come upon a group of sleds in front of you on the trail.  Passing them can get you in trouble.   Have been seeing this all winter.  When an entire group passes, by the time the last sled passes, a sled could be coming from the other direction.

Remember as you ride & meet a groomer the equipment is NOT able to leave the trail due to it’s weight.  Pull over & stop.  Wait for direction from the driver.  Give ’em a thumbs up.  They groom so we can ride!

Please ride on the right side, slow down, limit alcohol & no off trail riding.

Businesses on the 2 marked lakes, Catfish & Eagle have removed the barrels. Lots of slush & with temps dropping there was concern the barrels would freeze in & be hard to remove. 

Take The Pledge, Protect Snowmobiling access for today’s and future snowmobilers (


See ya on the trails!   Maybe this year we’ll ride ’til midnight on the 31st!
