Oswego County received significant snowfall this past week, with some areas receiving nearly a foot of snow. Clubs are reporting varying conditions. It is recommended to reach out to clubs on a day-to-day basis to check that the following conditions have not significantly changed. We will continue regular reports as clubs provide updates.

According to the Redfield Snowmobile Association:

As of March 13, trails north of town had been groomed. Trail conditions range from poor to good, with south of town having some thinness and bare spots. The club will not be grooming south of town until the area receives more snow. The club asks riders to respect landowners and stay on the trails.

According to the Pulaski-Boylston Snowmobile Club:

As of March 15, the area had received 7 to 10 inches of fresh snow. Boylston trails C5E, C5A and S54 on the hill have been groomed. Pulaski area trails are currently closed due to long stretches of bare trail, mud and water. The club encourages riders to check the New York State Snowmobile Association map frequently, as updates will be provided as often as possible.

According to the Mexico Trail Riders:

As of March 9, trails are closed. The club asks riders to please stay off the trails.

According to the Sterling Trail Tamers:

As of March 15, grooming was done from the groomer barn to Red Creek, Martville and the Oswego/Cayuga line and back to the groomer barn. The club reports good conditions on the trails that were groomed but warns of some water holes and a few downed trees due to the heavy snow. The club asks riders to ride with caution, as an excavator will be out to take care of tree limbs on the C4 trail by the Oswego/Cayuga line heading toward Red Creek.

According to the Winona Forest Recreation Association:

As of March 14, the area received 8 inches of new snow. Most motorized-use trails are open and are in excellent condition. The following motor-use trails are currently closed: Adsit S55C, Backus Bend S55D, Balch Road S55D, Brown Road Extension C5B, Gold Spike S55 and Musher Ridge S55E. Most of the open trails had been groomed on March 14 or 15. Non-motorized-use trails have also been groomed and have good coverage.
