The State funded snowmobile trail system in Vilas County will officially open at:
6:00 PM ON FRIDAY DECEMBER 13th, 2013, with the exception of Phelps trails which will remain closed until further notice.
Trails are in early season condition so caution is strongly recommended. Most clubs are reporting good trail bases, however riders may encounter rough areas, icy patches and wet segments in low-lying areas. Riders should stay on the trails as marked and not cross area lakes until the route across the lake has been clearly marked. Additional snow is needed for area snowmobile clubs to provide the well-groomed, world class trails for which Vilas County is noted.
Cross-Country Ski Trails:
Trails in the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest (NHAL) and the Chequamegon/Nicolet National Forest are being cleared of brush with some trails already packed and groomed with additional grooming planned this week. Several other trails (Three Eagle, Razorback Ridges, Afterglow Resort, and Minocqua Winter Park) reported in good to very good early season condition with 1″-2″ solid bases (thinner under the trees).
