The snowmobile trails have officially opened today! We recieved roughly five inches of snow yesterday, and the groomers went out at about 9 this morning. The new snow is very wet and packy...great for a base! Although they are open, the trails will be rough. However, many of the lakes are not open yet, as most are not safe. Use caution when riding, and do not go onto the lakes if they are not marked!
Some cross country ski trails are open, and those trails that are groomed are just packed down by snowmobile. Skating technique is the only option on groomed trails, as we need more snow for the classic technique. Try some yellow ToKo glide wax on those skate skis! Once it gets colder, this snow will form an excellent base.
Snowshoeing will be hard with this wet snow, so let it cool off a little before you try out those woods!
Stay tuned for new snowfall!
