Our trails did receive about 4" of snow. The groomers were out Tuesday & Wednesday. The conditions are fair on most of the trails and good in some spots. If the weather conditions for the weekend get warm, this could impact the trails quickly. If anyone had ridden the trails two weeks ago the conditions as of now have improved somewhat from that time.

We had our snowmobile meeting Saturday morning. There were good discussions about our trails and the up coming season. We talked about a very large tree that needed to be cut down due to the safety of it. After the meeting five of us went to the area, which was near the Indian Trail Road, north of White Potato, and removed it. I posted the pictures of the tree on this site.. If you are interested in seeing pictures or video of the trails this weekend please view on our facebook page.
We rode the Bag & Bra Snowmobile trails on Saturday and Sunday. I would say the trails were in fair to good condition in some areas. There are some trails that still need to be groomed. We hope to have them all groomed by the end of the week, if snow conditions improve We do have a great snow base already, with a few more inches of snow, we will have a great trail system. In our opionion the trails north of our trails are in poor condition, very brown. All other trails around ours are not groomed or are closed due to the lack of snow.
The marsh west of White Potato Lake, trail # 433 to 437, has high marsh grass but it does have enough snow under the grass to ride on. It looks worse than it is.
The trails will open 12/29/2017 Friday 8:00AM
The trails are from fair to poor with 5 to 7”of snow. The trails in the woods are the best area to ride. The groomers have been out two days and will be out Friday also. Be sure to watch for the groomers on the trails. The marshes and wet areas need to freeze up more before they can get groomed Remember the groomers are 10,000 lbs and snowmobles are between 400 to 600 lbs. Can you help us out when you ride in the areas not groomed? Please help by packing down the outside edges of the trails, try not to just stay in the middle of it; this will help freeze them up. We do not know the condition of the Lakes so I would not ride on them at all.
Time to start preparing for the snowmobile season.
To let everyone know, the trails still need to have more work done this weekend due to wind damage areas before they can be opened. The marshes and wet areas need time to freeze up harder. Kelly Lake was still 1/2 open on 12-9-2017 and other lakes as well. We did receive 10 to 12" of snow this last snowfall. We have not done any grooming at this time. We plan to have the groomers out soon. We will inform you when the trails are open, check this website, facebook or the Oconto County website. The whole county is not open to snowmobilers at this time.
Remember to get your trail passes.
Hi All it's time to start getting the snowmobiles and trails ready. We have been working on the trails, clearing and brushing. We also made a change on the trail going to Suring and the Pipeline. We moved the trail to the north this year so we will cross Hwy Z and do not have to run next to it, crossing the bridge and then the highway. This is all due to a great landowner who helped us move the trail, which will make it a safer trail to use. We will be putting up the signs very soon so if you would like to help sign let us know. We have about 1000 more signs to put up. If you are trying to down load a map from this web site we are having a problem getting it to work this year so please stay tuned we are working on it.
