Mt. Ashwabay/Jerry Jolly Trail System Bayfield, Wis.

Report: This morning Steve and I packed and tracked the classic only trails, including: Raven, Deerpath, Blackbear, Sugarbush Classic, and Oppedahl's. I also did a first try at grooming Birch Hill for skate. It is still soft on Birch Hill, will need another grooming to be decent. Yesterday we groomed and tracked: Anchor, Jolly Long, Seagull, Rollercoaster, Telford, and the Sugarbush Dog Trail. With an inch of new snow, the trails groomed up really well. Other than the few spots we were getting a little drifting, might have been some of the best skate conditions of the year.

Mt. Valhalla - Valkyrie and Teuton Ski Trails Washburn, Wis.

Report: The Teuton and Valkyrie Trails will be groomed tomorrow following this recent snow fall. Updates will be posted tomorrow afternoon. Please note- the Forest Service is working with the North Coast Cycling Association (NCCA) under an agreement to allow the use of fat tire bikes and snowshoes on the left half of the trail tread on Loops A, B and Little A of the Valkyrie Trail System this winter. This is a trial on these trails to determine if these mixed uses are compatible. The trails are signed to identify where fat tire bikes and snowshoes are allowed. Loop C is the only section of the trail system that is closed to fat tire bikes and snowshoes. Signs with a map and information are posted at the trailheads, on the trails and in the warming room and chalet. Comment cards will be provided at the trailheads and in the warming room and chalet. Let us know what you think! Please help this test to be successful and stay on the designated trail loops for fat tire bikes and snowshoes. Make sure you have snowshoes on if you want to walk or run on the trails that are open snowshoeing- walking or running with just boots is prohibited because it creates holes in the trail tread. If there are issues due to the mixed uses on these trail loops, please contact the Washburn Ranger District office at (715) 373-2667 to report. Your feedback on the mixed trail use is important to the Forest Service so please fill out a comment card and send it in. Fat tire bikes, snowshoeing and walking with snow boots or shoes is prohibited on all of the Teuton Trails. Just a reminder- dogs are prohibited from being on all of the groomed ski trails and inside any of the buildings. The warming room and chalet are open from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily. Warmer temperatures are predicted beginning this weekend through most of next week. Please check the snow conditions on the 1/2 of the trail on the Valkyrie Trails open to fat tire bikes and snowshoes before using. Help preserve the base during this brief warm spell. The 2017 annual Forest user pass is valid until March and are available at local vendors, Forest Service offices, or online at www.fs.usda.gov/main/cnnf/passes-permits and click on the link on the right hand side of the screen that says purchase your daily and annual Forest pass here. The Forest user pass is $20/vehicle sticker and a second sticker for an additional $10.

Wintergreen Trail Fifield, Wis.

Report: 1-17-2018 – All trails were groomed and tracked. Base on the trails is 4-5” and in the woods it is 8”. The snow was a little thin still by the beaver ponds on C loop. I adjusted the track setter on the groomer to give classic skiers a little more room for pole planting on the outside edge. The weather this weekend is predicted to be in the mid 30’s, and the Packers aren’t playing (unfortunately) so there shouldn’t be any excuses to not get out and enjoy the trails on your National Forest!
