WJJQ SNOWMOBILE REPORT (UPDATED January 13)
reports at 7:30, 12:30 and 5:10
Clubs are starting to report after this week’s snow and it’s nothing but positivity. Most areas across the northwoods received between a half foot to a foot of snow. It sounds like most areas are on the upper half of that range.
The groomers have been busy the last few days getting the trails ready for a great weekend of riding.
Trails are anywhere from good to excellent and should be able to hold up just fine through the weekend. Of course the extended forecast has some warmer temperatures, but we’ll worry about that next week.
The snow cover should also take care of the icy areas. The swampy areas are getting better, but still remain an issue some locations. Once again please use caution when heading out.
Here in the Tomahawk area, the Northwoods Passage and Knight Owl trails should be in very good condition heading into the weekend with nearly a foot of new snow. Groomers have been out with a few exceptions of some soft areas in the swamps. Please stay on the marked trails and watch for other lake goers with several fishing tournaments in the coming weekends.
Minocqua January 12: good to excellent conditions with 12 inches of new snow and 22 inches overall. All Cross Country Cruisers groomers have been out in full force making our trails what they’re known for, some of the best in Wisconsin! Get up here and enjoy the trails they are awesome!!!
Rhinelander Sno-Hodags January 12: Wow!!! Now we are talking fun times. We were blanketed with 7-10″ of fresh snow on Tuesday. The groomers are out in full force getting the trails in very good condition. This was the perfect ingredient needed to move the trail conditions to world class shape. All of the trails will be groomed and ready for the weekend. No excuses to not get out and enjoy the trails.
Prentice Bushbenders anticipate having all trails groomed by Friday and should be in excellent condition.
