Snowmobile conditions 1/8
Snowmobile trails are still being groomed and are reported to be in fair to good shape. The Frederic trail, which is the most heavily used, is the one in the snirtiest condition. Groomer driver Keith anticipates that the warm up predicted for this weekend isn’t going to have a huge impact on the conditions.
