2/4/2020 Midweek Trail report
With this past week’s warm temperatures the trails have become slippery on hills and curves.
I was out on LMT 2 Carter to intersection 4 today and was very icy on hills and curves.
LMT 3 from the Wolf River State Trail (intersection 9) to WindFall (intersection 10) has icy spots.
LMT 4 Wabeno was groomed Sunday night and will be done Wednesday night with icy conditions.
LMT 6 was groomed today and in good condition.
LMT 7 was groomed Monday night and the driver reported icy spots.
LMT 8 was groomed Monday night and the driver reported icy spots.
Nicolet State Trail will be groomed Tuesday night. I will have another report coming out as we get closer to the weekend. We could use another 6” of snow to make for ideal conditions. Please stay on the marked trails and slow down for the groomer drivers! Thank you for riding the LMT system.
Don’t forget the February Membership Meeting at the Hotel Crandon 5:00 Feb. 13

The groomers have been out the last couple of days cleaning up the trails from the past weekend. Monday night the temperatures were hovering around zero making the trails we groomed set up great!
Be safe, ride right and enjoy the LMT trail system.

January 8, 2020 Update
From Trail Boss Steve Van Grinsven
LMT Trail System is in good to very good condition. We have been out everyday grooming and have been in the swampy areas with the Tucker we have on loan.
LMT 2 out of Carter to intersections 4&5 and LMT 4 from Wabeno to intersection 5 are temporarily closed until further notice due to large amount of open water.
Ride right and be safe!
January 4, 2020 Update
Caution tape is across Intersections 4&5 on LMT 2 near Wabeno/Carter. Currently this trail remains open, however, we are strongly recommending to avoid this area and take an alternative route until it freezes up.
Important Trail Update 12/27/19: Trails are in fair condition with rapidly changing and deteriorating conditions in some areas. Use extreme caution if you venture out. Trails remain open. However, please be considerate of the trails if you choose to ride because the more they get tore up, the harder it will be to straighten them out and provide a nice trail for the rest of the season. Think cold! Think snow!
Lumberjack Memorial Trails (LMT) snowmobile club is made up of a group of dedicated men and women who volunteer their time to maintain over 100 miles of snowmobile trails in beautiful Forest County, Wisconsin. This includes not only grooming the trails with state of the art equipment during the winter snowmobiling season, but also many other duties during the off season. Tree trimming, brushing, signage, fundraising, membership, equipment maintenance, land owner consulting and many more other behind the scenes work.
