This past week we picked up about 4” of heavy wet snow, increasing the trail base by 3-4”.
The groomer operators reported that the Nicolet and Wolf River State Trails are in good to very good condition at the time of this writing.
With warming temperatures by the weekend, conditions on area trails will show some deterioration. Get your riding in before the weekend!
The grooming machines will be out after 8 pm so please keep an eye out for them as you ride. If you meet a groomer on the trail please allow the driver to pull over and come to a complete stop before you pass making it safe for all.
Please take the time to check out our sponsors and pit stops along the LMT trail system.
Have a great ride while it lasts!

Greetings all from the LMT club!
We are looking at a great weekend for riding. With temperatures hitting in the 20s. Trails will take a hit with those warmer conditions, so be cautious!
The groomer operaters have been out on all trails this week touching them up as the best they can. The trail base in our area varies from 1-4” making it hard to get the moguls (bumps) out making it a smooth trail. The Nicolet and Wolf River State Trail systems are in good condition, but be careful for gravel and icy conditions near bridges.
We are asking snowmobilers that crash there sleds to clean up there parts. On LMT 8 this week parts were left scattered on or near the trail making for dangerous conditions. The groomer operators and landowners should not have to clean up after you. Conditions like this can close trails.
This weekend the LMT club is having their fund raiser ticket raffle at Charlie’s Lake Metonga Resort. The drawing will be at 3 pm Saturday February 20th. There is a limited amount of tickets sold. The proceeds go to trail and equipment maintenance.
I want to welcome Keith Keller as a new groomer operator out from the Wabeno shop. So if you see Keith in the Tucker on Saturdays give him the thumbs up!
The Carnage Cruise will be coming to Lake Metonga this weekend out in front of Charlie’s, should be a fun time for all.
Please support our sponsors and fine pit stops!
Have a fun weekend, keep the trails safe and ride right!
At the time of this writing the temperature is -21 making it brutally cold! If you venture out on a ride make sure you have a warm up plan.
The trails in the LMT system are rated at fair to good with some areas showing rocks and dirt. LMT 8 is showing the most wear between intersection 29B to intersection 30. We did put up caution signs in this area. LMT 7, 6,4 3 are in good shape.
Between intersections 6A and 21 on LMT 6 there is logging going so use caution in this area.
LMT 2 is in fair condition west of Carter needing more snow to fill in the washouts.
The Wolf River State Trail and the Nicolet State Trail are both starting to show some gravel coming up in areas, but is rated in good condition.
Have a great weekend!
The LMT trails will open Saturday 2/6/2021 at 8am.
The groomers are out now in full force taking care of the trails for a great opener. There is logging going on North of Keith Siding Rd on LMT 6 so use extreme caution. LMT 2 has a few rough spots between Carter and LMT 4 intersection so keep your speed down and be aware of those condition.
Please keep an eye out for all groomer drivers and give them a thumbs up! Check out our pit stops to see if they have any raffle tickets left to help out our fund raiser listed here and enjoy your ride!
Thanks for using our trails! TB Steve
