Snowmobile Trails Are Open!

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Yes, the Town of Inlet/Webb Snowmobiles officially opened Monday, December 8, 2014.

The Inlet groomers were out yesterday (Dec. 12).  They groomed from The Ole Barn to Eagle Bay and even dumped some snow on the hill along Route 28.  This section of trail has no base and is mealy, as it is every year.  The inner loop behind the Transfer Station was groomed and so was between the Fire Hall and Deer Meadows.  There is not enough base for the groomer to make the trip out to Drake’s yet, nor is there enough for the FX Matt trail to Red Dog Tavern.

The groomer did a trip to Eagle Bay this morning (Dec. 13) and then was stationed at the Fire Hall for the Snowmobile Safety Course.

Winter Update – March 19, 2014

Snowmobile trails are still in great shape, thanks to the Inlet Highway Department.  Roads are rough, making the getting in between a little bumpy, but still some of the best riding all season out there.

Cross-country ski trails were all groomed after the last snow storm are holding up pretty nice.

Ice skating rink is still good and so is the sledding hill.

Read this report by Darrin of ilsnow.com of his ride yesterday through the Moose River Recreation Area:  http://www.ilsnow.com/2014/03/18/snowmobile-trail-report-42/

Winter Update – January 31, 2014

It is snowing!  Not a heavy snow, but we will take any snow Mother Nature sends us right now.  This morning I felt overdressed in my hat & mittens while I waited for the school bus to pick up the boys.  It was 20 degrees above zero!

Snowmobile groomers are out today.  They made a trip to Eagle Bay and then headed out into the Moose River Plains.  They will make another trip to Eagle Bay before ending the day.

Cross-country ski trails have all been groomed over the last few days also.  Groomers are reporting all trails hard packed and in good condition. The sledding hill looks good and the ice skating rink is in excellent shape.

Think snow!

Winter Update – January 29, 2014

It is cold!  Currently 1 degree out there.  Above Zero!

Finally got some snow so the groomers could go out!  Fern Park has been groomed, but I do not think the golf course has been touched yet.  Snowmobile trails were groomed yesterday and out again today in the Moose River Plains and towards Eagle Bay.

Ice skating rink is excellent, sledding hill has snow (and is getting primed for the Cardboard Sled Race on February 22!!)

What is there to do?

Another 5 or 6 inches of snow overnight here in Inlet.  Don’t trust that snow stick at www.hamiltoncountychoppers.com.  I don’t care what it says.  That stick is in my front yard.  Yesterday it said 9 inches.  This morning I brushed a good 5 inches off the truck and the stick read 10 inches. ?? Must be drifting? Kids shoveling in front of it when I’m not looking? Anyways …

The Inlet snowmobile groomers are out this morning! I saw one in front of the Ole Barn on my way in to work and the other was crossing 28 heading towards Eagle Bay.

No word from the ski groomers yet. Maybe that means they are out on the trails?

Only 20 degrees out there so the ice skating rink should still be in good shape and this new snow on the sledding hill definitely can’t hurt it!

Snow & Trail Report – March 20, 2013

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

We have received quite a bit of snow over the last couple days.  I am talking over a foot of snow!  There is at least one snowmobile groomer out today working on the Inlet trails.  Trails should be in fair condition today.  Still watch for wet/thin spots, but there may even be some good spots out there! :)

The ski groomers report that all of Fern Park has been groomed including Ralph’s Run and the South Loop.  The Inlet Golf Course has also been recently groomed.  Trails are in very good condition.

Ice skating rink has 2 inches of ice and is in fair condition.  Sledding hill looks good!

We have received another 4 inches of snow overnight and it is still coming down pretty hard right now.

No groomers on the Inlet snowmobile trails that I am aware of.  Not sure if Webb is sending any out today either.  I would call the trails in fair “springlike” condition.

Ski groomer report from Sunday said Fern Park had been groomed and trails there and at the Inlet Golf Course were in fair to good condition.

Ice skating rink is still open and in fair condition.  The sledding hill will look good today!

Trail & Snow Report – March 16, 2013

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

We have received about 6-8 inches of new snow.  I do not hear the Inlet snowmobile groomers out, but I was told they are grooming in Webb.

The ski groomer was planning to hit the Inlet Golf Course this morning and then head over to Fern Park this afternoon.  Conditions should be pretty nice!

Ice skating rink is still open and the sledding hill has fresh snow to play on.
