Snowmobile Conditions around St. Germain

January 22, 2019

A light snowfall started overnight and 1-3″ is the local prediction for this area.   St. Germain is grooming nightly this week.  A heavy uptick in the amount of snowmobiles on trails was huge this past weekend.   Depending on your level of riding, most riders noticed corners were blown out and icy by the end of the day.

   Weekday riding is still overall good in the area, but with the lack of fresh snow, some fresh snow would be nice.  The forcast looks good this week, fingers crossed we get what’s forcasted.       Photos posted right are courtesy of Eric Halfman and Jeani Lane.    Jeani’s been a snow reporter staying at Hillers’ now for countless years.

 Trail pressure is heavier this midweek vs last midweek, but overall midweek riding looks good.     Overall ranking:  Poor (maybe 10%)    Fair (10%) to Good (80%) but a big difference will be if you’re riding Mon-Thurs vs Fri-Sun.

The lakes were all flat as a pancake with a 4″ layer of snow on top.    The lakes are marked, keep in mind to stay on the marked areas.

Cross Country ski trails are now open in the area with groomed tracks.   Winter Park in Minocqua is open along with free ice skating and free skate rental!  The base of snow in the woods is 6-8 inches.  Today’s photos were taken on January 15 courtesy of Mark and Jeani Lane!
