3/5/2020 LMT trail report

 

Greetings sledders!
  We had today 3” of heavy wet snow, temperature at the time of this post is 35 degrees. The Forest County trails will be closing Monday March 16, 2020 at 8 am. As of today our grooming operations have ended for the season. The trails held up the last few days even with the warm temperatures so if you can ride before the warmer temperatures arrive this weekend do it! This has been a great snowmobiling season.  I appreciate all the support from the groomer operators, the
Pit Stops along our trails, also from you the people that rode the LMT system.
This Saturday March 7, The LMT will be having the cash drawing at JARS Bar and Grill in Laona. Stop out and support the LMT!

See you next year!
Trail Boss Steve

2/12/2020 Midweek Trail Report

 

Greetings sledders!
This past week we received around 4” of new snow helping out with trail conditions with another inch forecasted for tonight. Temperatures the next couple nights will hover below zero making the groomed trails set up great making for a good ride.

All LMT trails including the Wolf River State Trail and Nicolet State Trail are rated in very good condition making the midweek ride wonderful. The grooming machines are expected to be out daily including nights so be on the look out for them.
 
Have a safe ride and keep right!
Trail Boss, Steve

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

From Trail Boss Steve:
Pat was out last night on LMT 2 (Carter)& 4 (Wabeno) and groomed to the icy area at ( Intersection 4) he reported that both trails are in very good condition til the (Intersection 4) so be very cautious with some slushy and ice chunk areas. There is caution tape up. Rick was out in the Windfall area and reported some soft spots near old county E but other than that LMT 3 is in Very good condition. Todd took care of LMT 7 last night and reported the trail as being in Very good condition. All other trails are rated very good to excellent in the LMT trail system. A big thanks go out to our drivers! Be safe, be cautious, be courteous and ride right!
Thanks, Steve


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.

Thank you for checking out our page. Please “like” and “share” us! Check back often for weather and trail condition updates. When you see a groomer out on the trails, please give the driver a thumbs up…they really appreciate it!
