Winter Trail Report:
Cross Country Skiing:
According to the Winona Forest Recreation Association:
All of the woodland trails are groomed and tracked. We will continue grooming as long as conditions permit us to do so. We have had some of the best conditions of the season.
According to Hugh Quinn of the Osceola Tug Hill Ski Club:
It is another cold start to the morning but predicted to warm rapidly with 23° expected for the high. With two inches of fresh snow we have mid-season conditions. Moderating temperatures into the 30s for the weekend with 40k set track and skate lane. We have a season snowfall total so far of 272 inches.
According to the Square Valley Trail Blazers:
The trails have set up nicely with these cold temperatures and they have held up well over the last few days. Grooming took place earlier in the week with Sections 1 and 2 in good to excellent condition. Section 3 (S-51 from the Gristmill to C-5 north to Happy Valley) has seen moderate to heavy traffic and is in fair to good condition as are Sections 4-5.
According to the Mexico Trail Riders:
In the last 48 hours, S52 was groomed from Mexico to Pulaski and from Mexico to Parish. S52B was groomed from Dahl’s in Scriba to Mack Rd. and S56 was groomed from Mack Rd. to D&W in New Haven. Knock on wood all the machines are running again and things look very good for the weekend.
According to the Fulton Area Snow Travelers:
Trails are open and grooming operations continue. East trails were groomed Thursday morning; West trails groomed Thursday afternoon. The roadside trail edges are bound to be bare and dry given the sun and lack of snow over the last couple of days. Trails in the woods and fields still have a good solid base to ride.
