The Florence drag broke yesterday. They are working on getting it fixed. The Aurora groomer was going out today, but the trail from Aurora to Niagara will be closed until the landowners are done hunting. STAY OFF THIS TRAIL!! The landowners are giving us 1 more chance to use their land, but not until they are done hunting!! The new Fence groomer/tractor will be taking its maiden voyage this weekend. I have not heard from the Tipler groomer yet. Look for the trails to open next week. PLEASE STAY OFF OF THE TRAILS UNTIL YOU SEE THE OFFICIAL WORD THAT THEY ARE OPEN!!

The groomers have been out in full force with the exception of the Fence/Homestead tractor. We are still struggling with the low pressure Michelon tires. Traction has been an issue on the hills.

Reported by: Florence County Snowmobile Club - Kevin Huth
Date of Report: January 15, 2010
Trail Conditions: Very Good
Snow Cover: 10-12 inches

Area Report: Trails are in great shape, but probably will get rougher with the increased traffic and the warmer weather. It's no secret that the trails hold up better to the traffic when it is colder.

With the warmer weather in the forecast, it is time to remind the ATV enthusiasts of the County ordinance. ATV's are ONLY allowed on trails marked for ATV use, however ATV's are NOT allowed on ANY GROOMED trail(no matter if it is marked for ATV use or not) when the temperature is at or above 28 degrees!! This ordinance is in place to try and help keep the trails in top shape throughout the winter.

TRAIL ALERT: The grade in Florence has a section that is closed. There is a marked re-route. If you are caught on the closed section, the landowner will prosecute.

Reported by: Florence County Snowmobile Club - Kevin Huth
Date of Report: January 21, 2010
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 10-12 inches

Area Report: Heavy traffic, above freezing temperatures, and the sun have reduced the quality of the trails. The sun shining on the open areas has created some bare spots. The rough, narrow woods trails could use more snow. The wider smooth trails are still in excellent shape.

Special Note: ATV's are ONLY allowed on trails marked for ATV use, however ATV's are NOT allowed on ANY GROOMED trail(no matter if it is marked for ATV use or not) when the temperature is at or above 28 degrees!! This ordinance is in place to try and help keep the trails in top shape throughout the winter.

TRAIL ALERT: The grade in Florence has a section that is closed. There is a marked re-route. If you are caught on the closed section, the landowner will prosecute.

TRAIL ALERT - F4 has been routed back through the swamp to avoid some logging areas

Reported by: Florence County Snowmobile Club - Kevin Huth
Date of Report: January 28, 2010
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 8 inches

Area Report: According to the reports from the groomer operators, the trails are still in decent shape with some thin areas. Reports coming in say there are more excellent then bad areas, so I changed the overall conditions to good.

Groomer Updates - Aurora groomer is down for repairs. Fence Tractor is out to get tracks installed.

Date of Report: February 4, 2010
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 8 inches

Area Report: Only an inch or so of new snow this week. It will help with the lube, but won't do much for the thin areas. Reports are that trails are in good shape in spite of the lack of new snow. We are shuffling groomers around trying to get everything done for the weekend.

Groomer Updates - I haven't heard on the Aurora groomer, and the tractor is still in Wausau getting tracks.
