    Price County

    Status: OpenCondition: Good - Excellent

    2/24/22 - All trails were groomed and tracked, with A, B, C and Shortcut groomed for classic and skate skiing.  D loop was pretty soft in the hills and the snowmobile got stuck a few times, so be forewarned, it's a bit lumpy in a few spots.  I did multiple passes on all the other tails to get them as buffed out as possible, and they were looking really good.  Forecast for the weekend is looking great too, hope to see you all out on the trails!

    Prentice Bushbenders Trail Report 2/22/22

    Well we are getting some much needed snow and with our awesome group of volunteers that groom our trails they will be in excellent condition for the coming weekend. So don't miss out before the weather warms up. Come and enjoy all the Price county trails and support our local businesses. As always be safe and have fun.

    2/16/2022 - The trails in the Fifield/Pike Lake area are all open and groomed and generally in very good to excellent condition.   As is always the case, the heavily used trails like 101 east of Pike Lake is still thin, but we groom it regularly so it smooth.  The 4-5” of snow we got last Friday did wonders in covering up a few rocks coming through and allowing us to smooth out the bumps  Happy Trails!

    1/28/21 – Freshened up the skate deck and classic tracks on A, B and Shortcut.  Trails C and D looked to be in great shape.  Should be a great weekend weather wise to get out and enjoy the National Forest!

    1/21/2022 -Trail 12 from Butternut to Iron County is now groomed. 

    1/19/22The trails in the Fifield/Pike Lake area are all open and groomed.  The trail conditions vary from good to very good,  but the snow remains thin.  Some segments of trail have rocks coming though.  We got 2” of new snow on Tuesday which helped, but we could sure use more.  Still, the trails are the best we’ve had so far this season and its time to get out there and ride. 

    1/18/21 – All trails at Wintergreen were groomed and tracked.  D was a little soft so I was unable to get as many passes on it as I would have liked, but it is in good condition for classic skiing.  I was able to make multiple passes on C and it is now nice and wide for classic and skate skiing, with just one short narrow spot on the back end of the trail near the beaver ponds.  With the cold temperatures that are rolling in the trails should firm up and be in great shape through the weekend.

      1/13/22: All county trails are open. Trails are generally in "good" condition based on the cover - base is still very thin, and there are still rocks that are only covered with powder, so be careful on the hills. Groomers are working with the snow we have until Mother Nature delivers. Lakes have re-frozen relatively solid, with 6-10" of ice, depending on the lake. Foot travel or snowmobile only is advised. Lots of Northerns, Crappies and Bluegills being taken. I'm posting some additional club info below: - Woody 1/11/21 - NorthWoods Hi-Riders We are happy to report the trails around the Solberg Lake area are generally in good to very good condition. All trails are now on a regular grooming schedule. It is still early season, so there may be a few thin spots and be on the lookout for rocks and branches on the trail - please be courteous and stop to clear any debris off the trail to keep you and other riders safe. 1/12/21 - Fifield Sno Drovers The trails in the Fifield/Pike Lake area are all open and groomed. The trails are in good condition, but snow is thin and doesn't hold up well to heavy traffic. Get out there and ride! 1/12/21 - Driftsplitters Kennan/Catawba Trails Trails are being groomed on a regular schedule. With a 4 - 6 inch base, conditions are fair to poor. There are 2 separate logging operations on trail 80 going to Talyor south of intersection 100. Each logging job has about 2 miles of trail bulldozed.

     
    Prentice Bushbenders Trail Report 01/12/22
     
    The trails around Prentice remain in overall fair condition. We groomed every day this last week and will continue to groom everyday. The base is still thin in places with exposed rocks, wood, bumps etc. Early season riding conditions still exist until we get more snow. Trail 120 South of Straveler road for approximately 3/4 mile has not been groomed due to an ongoing beaver issue. There is logging operations on trails 118 and 181 so use caution.  Be safe and Have fun.

    12/28/21: Trails will open on FRIDAY 12/31 at 8 am according to Greg Foltz at the Price County Snowmobile Trails Association: "Please advise that the trails are in POOR condition with some swamps still having open water.

The forecast looks good for the next few days with cold temps and more snow in the forecast. Lakes have re-frozen relatively solid, with 6-10" of ice, depending on the lake. Foot travel or snowmobile only is advised. Remember: Do NOT ride across water that has not been marked!

    Snow Report 12.22.2021

    Mercer Sno-Goers: Snowmobile Report:
    Iron County Trails remain closed. On Tuesday we received approximately 5-8” of new snow. Cold temps have really started to help freeze swamps and lakes. We have now begun rolling and packing trails along with continuing the clean up from the last storm.
    As of right now we don’t believe we have enough to create the base needed for trail opening, however there is snow in the forecast in the near future so keep your snow dances going.
    As always we will update you with any new information we have. Thank you for your continued support!
    We will continue you up our Facebook, website, snow line and our eNewletter as we get information on the status and future opening of the trails.
    MECCA Trails Report:
    SNOWSHOE TRAILS OPEN FOR HIKING
    ´╗┐Ski trails are not skiable as we need snow. The snowshoe trails from the chalet trailhead are open for hiking. You don’t need snowshoes on them now, since they need more snow too.
    Winman Trails:
    Snowshoe and Fat Bike Trails are OPEN
    Ski Trails are CLOSED for both Classic and Skate skiing. We currently have less than 2" of snow on the ground.
    Snowshoe Trails are OPEN. Expect some debris along the trail as well as portions that are still icy.
    Fat Tire Biking Trails are OPEN. Expect some debris along the trail as well as portions that are still icy.
    North Lakeland Discovery Center:
    Our trails are open and were previously groomed! However, due to recent adverse weather conditions, the trails are not in the best condition. The trails are icy in spots and there are areas where the base has thinned out considerably. Please check back for updates.
    We have snowshoes available on site.
    Please keep in mind when visiting groomed trails that we do not allow walking/hiking on our groomed trails. Snowshoeing can occur on any trail, we just ask that folks stay to the side of the groomed ski tracks. Pets must be kept on a leash at all times and please pick up after them (no one likes poop on their skis or snowshoes, and Ryan doesn't like it on the groomer either)- so please be a responsible pet owner!
    We recommend the blue River Trail for snowshoeing, or walking with dogs. We do not track this trail for skiing (we do roll it, we just don't track it). Parking is available at the Tower Road parking area for easy access to this trail.
    Ice Fishing Report:
    With the warm temps and rain yesterday it melted most of the snow and slush on top of the ice. Hopefully with the cold temps forecasted for the next 10 days all that water will freeze up nicely. We still have a nice base of 4-7” of ice.
    With the snowmobile trails now CLOSED and no significant snow forecasted, ICE FISHING is an awesome option for you to have some fun.

    12/20/21: Trails are closed, but the drop in temps have really firmed up the little amount of snow base we have left, and marshes are freezing up nicely. There were a LOT of trees down on the trails from the high winds last week, but club members have been out clearing the trails off for grooming - I met some members of the Sno Drovers yesterday on the 101 by Wintergreen who had been cutting all day. Now all we need is some more SNOW!

    Sno-Gypsies Report 2/19/2021

    FYI the club had to reroute trail 80/Corridor 21. Going south your going to head west on Mader Road to the High Tension Lines then south to Demars Bridge. Going North head west and follow the High Tension Lines to Mader Road and make a right. Everything is marked and the new trail is groomed. Please stay on the trail there are boulders buried in the high lines.

     

     Thank you to all the clubs and volunteers that keep the trails in great shape. Without all the time and support that you put in this would never happen.

    The Park Falls and Phillips Chambers Thank you for providing a great opportunity for the residents and the visitors to enjoy Price County.
