Snowmobile Trail Report (2-4-11)

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Reported By:  Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club
Date of Report:  February 4th, 2011
Trail Conditions:  Very Good
Snow Cover:  20-25 inches

SNOW CONDITIONS:
No new snow this week. It may be time to send a message to the big guy for a few more inches of snow before too long.


TRAIL REPORT:
Trails are still in very good condition. Trails continue to be groomed on a regular schedule of Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. I did see the groomer out on Saturday morning last weekend on the Chippewa South trail. Not many riders this week until today due to the cold weather. Riders I talked to say the trails are very nice. Small section of logging on the Chippewa South trail (1/8 of a mile) and on the Triville trail just north of hwy 200. Several riders I talked to today told me the Chippewa West trail is the best it’s been in years.

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-20-11)

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Reported By:  Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club
Date of Report:  January 20th, 2011
Trail Conditions:  Excellent
Snow Cover:  25-30 inches

AREA REPORT: We received 6-8 inches of new snow last weeked which just adds to the snow we already had. I don’t recall having this much snow on the ground this time of year since the mid 90’s.

TRAIL REPORT: Trails continue to be in excellent condition. They’re being groomed on a regular schedule of Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. I was told by the groomers they will be out early Saturday if necessary to get the more heavily traveled areas of the trails. Haven’t been a lot of riders this week due to the cold weather, so the trails should be in good condition this weekend. The few brave souls I have talked to this week say the trails are great.

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-3-11)

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Reported By:  Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club
Date of Report:  January 3rd, 2011
Trail Conditions:  Excellent
Snow Cover:  20-25 inches

AREA REPORT: Snow Conditions – I’ve got great news. We had 10-12 inches of new snow fall late last week.
Snow was sticky which should provide the trails with a great base.

TRAIL REPORT: We had a lot of riders over the past holiday week. Trails are being groomed on a schedule of Monday/Tuesday and again Thursday/Friday. With the new snow, the trails will be as good as they’ve been for some time over the next few weeks. There’s logging on the Chippewa West, South and Triville trails, but only for very small stretches. Nows the time to come up and enjoy the trails!!

TRAIL REPORT:
Trails were groomed on Monday and Tuesday. They’ll be done again today and Friday. Groomers reported logging on a 1 1/2 mile stretch of the Wooldlake trail between the turn south to Outing and the trun north to lake Inguadona. Other than that, riders I talked to this week are reporting Good to Very Good conditions. It’s supposed to cool off this weekend, so we should be in for another good weekend of riding.

Snowmobile Trail Report (2-5-10)

Monday, February 8th, 2010

NOTE:  The Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.

Reported by: Larry Gavin – Longville Snowmobile Club

Date of Report: February 5, 2010

Trail Conditions: Very Good

Snow Cover: 10-12 inches

SNOW CONDITIONS:
Not much new snow this week. It’s snowing today and it’s supposed to snow off and on through Tuesday.  Nice hard-pack base of about 3-4 inches.


TRAIL REPORT:
Trails have all been groomed this week. Everyone I talked to last weekend said the trails were in very good condition. I talked to a lot of riders that came up from Outing that said the trail was really nice. There’s  a rough stretch just short of Lake Inguadona, but overall reports were very favorable.  I went out riding twice this week on the Tri-Ville and Lost Girl trails and they were great. There’s a really nice hard-pack of snow on them that makes it feel like you’re riding on a highway, with no ice on the corners. The hard base should hold up well even with a lot of traffic. If you’ve been waiting for good trails to ride, this is the time to come up. The trails don’t get much better than they are right now.

EDIT:  Update – As of Monday, February 8th, we have received another 4 inches or so of snow. Trails should be in great shape by mid-week.

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-27-10)

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

NOTE:  The Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was January 27th, 2010.

SNOW CONDITIONS:

Finally more snow. Reports from people I’ve talked to say we received about 3-5 inches Sunday night. More east, less south and west.

TRAIL REPORT:

With the new snow, the club has resumed grooming this week. All trails will be done before the weekend. All of the riders that I’ve talked to say the Tri-ville from Longville to Federal Dam and the Lost Girl from Longville to Remer are in very good condition. The C Trail and Chippewa South trails didn’t get as much snow so they’re still a bit rough.

Trail Conditions: Very Good
Snow Cover: 10-12 inches

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-15-10)

Monday, January 18th, 2010

NOTEThe Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was January 15th, 2010.

SNOW CONDITIONS:

Unfortunately, no new snow to report since our Christmas storm.

TRAIL REPORT:

Most of the trails have a hard packed base, but it’s getting pretty thin with some dirt around corners and at road crossings. They’re forcasting warm weather over the weekend, so this may be the best the trails will be until we get more snow. I’ve talked to several groups of snowmobilers this week and all reports are about the same. Trails are fair, but more snow is needed. Have a great time riding and don’t forget to wish for more snow before you go to bed tonight!!

Snowmobile Trail Report (12-30-09)

Friday, January 1st, 2010

NOTEThe Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was December 30th, 2009.

Snow Conditions:
Winter finally arrived this week and just in time to rip around on the new snowmobile you received for Christmas. We received around a foot of new snow over the Christmas Weekend. This was the first significant snowfall of the year. It was a wet heavy snow that will provide a good starting base on the trails.

Trail Report:
All of the trails were groomed this week. Riders are saying the trails are not bad considering this was the first significant snow of the season. They are reporting some bumpy areas, but over all they are in fair to good riding condition.

Be aware there is a 2 mile section of the Tri-ville Trail south of Hwy 200 that is in poor condition due to logging in the area.

Hope everyone has a great time riding over the New Years weekend. If you have any pull with mother nature, we could use more snow!!
