Snowmobile Trail Report - as of Friday, Jan. 12, 2018

Trails have 2-4 inches of fresh snow as of Thursday night. The snowmobile trails are open and the condition is good to fair. Some trails were groomed Thursday night and some trails are being groomed Friday. Use caution as there may be rough areas through swamps. For your safety, please do not travel on the lakes until the lake trails are marked as some areas are still unsafe for snowmobile travel.

Several miles of trail are open for winter ATV and UTV riding including the Flambeau Trail System, Solberg Trail, and Georgetown Trail. The Price County portion of the Pine Line Rail Trail (Prentice to Ogema), Snowmobile Trail 189 (Ogema to Timm’s Hill), and Snowmobile Trails 116, 181 and 118 (Prentice area loop) are also open to winter ATV and UTV riding when the trail is officially open to snowmobile use and the temperature is 28 degrees or colder.

Bushbenders (Prentice, Brantwood, Ogema, and Spirit areas / southeast Price County) - 01/11/18 - Good condition - The trails have all been groomed and they are in good condition.

Driftsplitters (Catawba-Kennan area / southwest Price County) - 01/12/18 - Good condition - Trails are being groomed and they are in good condition. There is a section of Trail 94 that is icy due to water flowing over the cranberry bog. Also, there is logging on Trail 94 and on Trail 181 east of Intersection 100.

Sno-Drovers (northeast Price County / Pike Lake area) – 01/12/18 - Good condition - We have about 3” of fresh snow. This will help cover the gravel and bare spots that were coming through. The groomer was out last night and will be out on our normal runs the next couple of days. I suspect the trails will all be in good riding condition, but will deteriorate as the traffic increases. Be aware of rough spots as this isn’t enough snow to make the trails completely smooth.

Bushwackers (east of Park Falls & Fifield / north central Price County) - 01/10/18 - Good to fair condition - Trails 103, 111, and 113 are all groomed. The base has diminished and there are some bare spots and rocks showing here and there. Overall, the trails are in fair condition, very rideable, but need more snow. The groomer has done a great job with the minimal amount of snow.

Sno-Gypsies (west of Park Falls / Tuscobia / northwest Price County) - 01/03/18 - Good to fair condition - The trails are starting to get a decent base and conditions are improving. All trails are being groomed on a regular basis now, except for some swamp areas which have been packed and are rideable. The Price County portion of the Tuscobia State Trail has been groomed and it is in good condition.

Lugerville Chasers (west of Phillips / west central Price County) - 01/03/18 - Good to poor condition - All of our trails have been groomed. They are in good to poor condition. Please use caution as it is early in the season and we need more snow on the trails. Also, there is a logging operation in progress on Trail 88, so between Crane Chase and Soo Lake the trail is in poor condition.

Northwoods Hi-Riders (Solberg Lake area / northeast of Phillips / central Price County) - 01/08/18 - Good to fair condition - The trails around the Solberg Lake area are being groomed on a regular schedule and they are in fair to good riding condition. There are a few bare spots, but all in all, the trails are very rideable. The swamps are frozen and Solberg Lake is now marked.

Chaparrals (east of Phillips / east central Price County) - 12/31/17 - Good to poor condition- The Chaparrals trails have been groomed, conditions range from poor to good, most of the swamps are rough but frozen, lakes have firmed up pretty good but there are still reports of slush in some areas. The trail conditions will improve with a few inches of snow.
Elk River Pioneers (Soo Lake area / west central Price County) - 01/04/18 - The trails are packed / panned and they are rideable, but they are in poor condition. More snow is needed before the trails can be groomed.


WISCONSIN TRAIL PASS REGULATIONS, from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources:

Wisconsin is the birthplace of snowmobiling and continues to offer some of the best snowmobiling opportunities you are likely to find, especially in northern Wisconsin. More than 200,000 registered snowmobiles hit Wisconsin's 25,000 miles of groomed trails each winter, making safety an important part of the ride. Ride smart from the start - take a snowmobile safety course!

If you were born on or after Jan. 1, 1985, and are at least age 12, you must complete a snowmobile safety certification course to operate a snowmobile on Wisconsin public snowmobile trails and areas. DNR recreational safety specialists recommend snowmobile operators complete a safety course.

•$30 for a three-year registration
•purchase and display of an annual trail pass required to use public trails;
•a $20 savings off the standard $30 trail pass fee for members of both a snowmobile club and the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs; and
•nonresident trail passes will increase from $35 to $50.

The fee structure supports local trail maintenance and will generate additional revenue for the state snowmobile program fund.
