The snowmobile trails are still closed in Vilas and Oneida County. We are waiting for the county trail coordinators to finish inspection and/or more snow for grooming.
The base of snow in the woods is 4-6 inches. Several clubs have panned to start a base.
The lakes are freezing nicely for this early in the season. Cold temperatures and lack of snow have helped the ice conditions. Several ice fishermen are using snowmobiles and atv’s to get to their ice shacks. 6-8 inches of ice is common right now and there’s 3 inches of snow on the ice. I’m sure we’ll start marking lakes well before Christmas for a change.
Keep Dooin’ the Dance!
