Mon. Feb 6
Due to the forecasted warm temperatures and poor snow cover all trails will close at noon today.

Fri. Feb.3 2017
Most trails will open at noon today. Here is a list of trails that remain closed. Corridor 26 from Midway to Stevenstown, the Bluebird trail from Hwy F to Fox Hollow Golf Course  Trail conditions vary throughout the county. Hill tops and wooded areas will have good snow cover while valleys and open fields will not. If you are riding on a field where snow cover is thin please slow down and don’t damage the property. Also please stay on the marked trails and ride between the markers. Also watch for water over the trail between Stevenstown and North Bend.
 Please check back for updates.

All trails in LaCrosse County remain CLOSED at this time. We are currently receiving much needed new snow. However any trail openings will be determined on how much snow we do actually get and how many low areas have standing water and icy hills. We will evaluate these conditions and ask for your patience as we do this. If the trails are not officially open, please respect our wishes and our land owners and stay off the trails. We are and will do the best we can to open if and when it is possible! With the past warm weather and melting snow, we are again starting all over, and in some case with all the new standing water, worse off than when we started. Thank you for being patient.

All trails in the county are now open.

. Trail conditions should be considered poor at this time. Please watch for branches, ice and possibly standing water on the trails.

For further information please call our trail condition hotline 608-782-4500.

A message sent out by the AWSC and Madison area snowmobile clubs concerning Blue Mounds State Park Master Plan: 


AWSC

Fellow Snowmobilers:

If you recall, the Natural Resources Board unanimously approved the Blue Mounds State Park Master Plan Amendment that included the final compromise to re-open the snowmobile trail within the park at their January, 2016 meeting. Due to a legal discrepancy, the Natural Resources Board may be re-voting on that Master Plan Amendment at their January 25th, 2017 meeting.

The NR Board will be accepting comments on that re-vote until 11 AM on January 13th. Comments can be made to Laurie Ross’ address and email address listed below:

Please note that we are commenting on the January 25th Agenda Item 9B: We are asking the Natural Resources board to approve the Blue Mounds State Park Master Plan Amendment including the snowmobile trail as they had done so unanimously at their January, 2016 meeting.

Remember… this effort is in addition to our iPetition of support (which will also be presented to the NR Board).  However, it is also critical that we also get as many comments as we can get in to Laurie’s office before the 13th as possible!

 

Thanks to all!
