Winter Trails Report:

This has definitely been a less than winter like season so far. Much of the county has little to no snow. The forecast is calling for a change to this pattern later in the week and into the weekend. Colder temperatures and some snow is expected on Thursday with another system coming through on Saturday into Sunday. The extended forecast shows temperatures being much more seasonable (20s to low 30s) through the rest of the month. We will have to see how this plays out.


Cross-Country Skiing:

According to the Winona Forest Recreation Association:

This past weekend’s warm temperatures and rain definitely hurt all trails. Once we get colder temperatures and snow we will do what we can to get the trails back in shape.

According to the Osceola Tug Hill Ski Club:

We are still telling skiers to wait for more snow.  Most of the trails have a thin coating of hard pack and a little snow on top but this does not do enough for safe skiing.
