Trail Report 12/11/2019
Early season conditions still apply, we are still grooming around all swamps and hoping this cold weather yesterday and today helps freeze down our lakes and swamps. We received another 8-10″ of snow on Monday so we have been working to get everything all groomed. The trails are in great condition minus the wet spots in some of the swamps. Riders from last week reported excellent conditions. Trail 13, 51E to Vilas County, and 182 to Price County still remain closed until further notice. Remember early season conditions still apply.
Trail report 12-04-2019
Iron county trail system opens Thursday, December 5th at 8am.
Please expect early season riding, the Flowage and Lake of the Falls are not marked and currently not safe to ride on, we strongly advise to not ride the Flowage or Lake of Falls until it has been marked. Lake traffic is not advised. We have been through a good portion of our swamps with either sleds or our alltrack and they are passable, you will find wet areas so use caution. 17N is groomed and in great condition, we had groomers out on 12A&B, 10, 20, and 19 and they report great conditions but there are still wet areas. Please keep in mind that these are early season conditions. As conditions change through-out this opening weekend we will be posting frequent trail reports.
Trails that are closed
Reports from our plow truck drivers is we received 8-14 inches of snow in the Mercer area. We are currently assessing what trails are able to be packed and groomed. We will inform everybody of our progress.
A winter storm watch has been issued for Iron County, Heavy snow is expected between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. Total snow accumulations of 6-10 inches with a possibility of higher amounts around a foot. Snow will continue through the week and into the weekend with more substantial amounts expected. Stay safe during your thanksgiving travels. If the forecast is correct we WILL be out preparing the trails. Stay tuned!
Over the last week we have received 4-6 inches of snow. This is perfect due to the fact that it’s very cold out and our swamps and lakes have time to freeze. With too much snow all at once it acts as an insulator and we don’t get the freeze we need. Things are working right on schedule and on pace for an early December trail opening. Next week we are forecasted to have mid to high 30s as temperatures so our hope is this snow will settle and freeze to start our base. After the cold temperatures this week we should be in pretty good shape in our wet areas.
To all of our veterans past, present and future, thank you for raising your right hand and swearing an oath to protect and defend the greatest country on earth. This day is for you.
If you are having trouble getting your trail pass through the AWSC, please make sure your address that you gave to us matches your address on your gowild account. One digit off and it won’t let you get one.
Overnight and today we are getting our first snowfall of the year! Think cold so we can get our swamps frozen for trail opening in December!
This Saturday August, 31st we will be out brushing and signing trails in the Mercer Area. Everybody is welcome to come and help out. We are in need of ATVs and UTVs as not all of our trails are accessible by vehicle. We hope to see as many of you here as possible! We will be meeting at our barn in downtown Mercer at 8am.
With a lot of work from SS Sports Store in Mercer, our 2020 Arctic Cat Riot 6000 is all put together and on the trailer. You may purchase your tickets at any business in the town of Mercer. Thank you and think snow!
