Area Report:

December 8, 2023 – 11:44am – 42 degrees


First report of the season & it’s a glum one.  Currently SNOW depth is almost non existent.  But before you START DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE.   You need to THINK COLD.  Temps were headed in the right direction until late last week.  Highs have been in the 30’s or higher during the day.  So what light SNOW we had on the ground is nearly all gone. 

In the meantime the club is completing sign updates, brushing & doing plenty of re route.  When the trails open I will expand on the re routes.  This is a year that you definitely should by a new trail map.

Todd Bierman, Park & Rec Supervisor is out doing trail inspections by truck or ATV/UTV.  So that when we do get SNOW the Vilas County Alliance can take a vote to get the trails open as quick as possible.  The PSA announcement will come from Todd when trails in Vilas are set to open.  NO RIDING BEFORE.

Keep THINKIN’ COLD!  More updates soon!
