Cross Country Skiing:
According to the Winona Forest Recreation:
The annual Winona Forest Tourathon will take place this Saturday. If you haven’t register online, registration will only be open from 6:30 – 7:30 a.m. at the CCC Camp. We have excellent trail conditions – it’s going to be a great weekend to ski.
According to Hugh Quinn of the Osceola Tug Hill Ski Club:
We are expecting a chilly start on Saturday but not a lot of wind. High temperature should be about 16 with Sunday 23 and some afternoon snow. This will be a good weekend to ski with skate lanes and set tracks. We are probably 40-60 inches below normal for snowfall at this time and yet with the consistently cold temperatures, we have excellent conditions and a 30+ inch base.
According to the Mexico Trail Riders:
S52 from Mexico to Parish was groomed yesterday. The MTR club/family ride will take place this Sunday, March 1. Plan to leave from the EIS House at 12:30, ride to Happy Valley, Altmar, Pulaski and back to Mexico on the rail bed: 45-50 miles total. All snowmobilers are welcome.
According to the Pulaski-Boylston Snowmobile Club:
TRAIL CLOSED ALERT!! We regret to inform you that the trail through the woods from Blount Mills Road to Route 17 near the Old Lake Effect Inn is currently CLOSED. Please respect the landowner’s decision and refrain from riding this trail. We will also not be able to groom outside the banks of Blount Mills Road as this property belongs to the same land owner. Use S51B to access Little John Road as an alternate. Thank you for your cooperation. Today all four groomers were out grooming the trails so we should have some very nice riding over the next few days.
According to the Redfield Snowmobile and Recreation Association:
Continued snow and cold combined with moderate traffic has resulted in some excellent conditions throughout the region. Regular grooming will continue through the week and weekend. Our BR180 now has some new idler wheels and went back in service last Thursday night. Fortunately we were able to keep up with the Tucker while it was down. Thanks to those who helped make it all happen!
