    Default Bayfield/Valhalla

    Had a nice ride with Laura and Jonathon out of www.woodsidecottages.com today. The FR's were good to excellent with 6-7" of fresh snow and the few trails we rode were fair to very good.

    The trails that are on forest roads (TR19, 51, 31N, 40) provide good riding and have a solid base but the ones going through the woods need another 6" of wet snow to fill in the holes, ruts, etc.

    Only saw about 6 other sleds and broke trail on many of the FR's.IMG_3072.JPGIMG_3071.JPGIMG_3070.JPG

    FR riding has been very good and trails have been groomed and range from fair to very good. We rode Saturday and will be going out again starting Friday.

    NWS is calling for 2-5" through Wednesday morning. 1" of light snow thus far.

    Is there enough snow to come from Brule via trail#1 into Portwing? I know there are options out of Portwing to get away from the lake into better snow. Thanks in advance for information.

    Closures:

    Trail 4 east in the Mason area is temporarily closed from the point where trail 63 hits Wilson Road all the way to Ashland County until further notice.

    Trail 31S in Barnes is currently closed between Seeley Fire Lane and 43 Rd due to unsafe trail conditions. (I think this part has opened)

    Trail 1 near Port Wing: Due to a new round of heavy logging on private property, the portion of snowmobile 1 from highway 13 east of Port Wing to Touve RD. will be closed until further notice. At this time there is no viable reroute.

    Trail 63 in the Cable Area: Trail 63 just south of the intersection with Trail 70 south of the town of Cable is closed until further notice.

    Sorry but I can't help you with your question. We do not ride that area as snow conditions there are usually far less than the Bayfield/Valhalla area.

    Our group of 11 rode today and had excellent riding on the FR's which had up to 6" of fresh snow. We spent the morning and early afternoon on FR's ans saw no other sleds. There is up to 20" of snow in the woods and on old logging roads that no one rides but us.

    We rode trails after a lunch stop at the PubNGrub and saw only 3 sleds all afternoon. The trails we rode TR31/1/51 (all north of Valhalla and west of Bayfield) were good to excellent.

    There about 15-20 sleds at the Pub so traffic was very light probably due to the cold weather.

    No pics as I forgot my phone at home.

    I just got back from that area and I would say ---- ride to Iron River and then north. The trail from Port to Herbster is closed, and the snow is lean west of Port.

    The Pub n Grub, that’s funny, I looked at there camera shot the other day and it showed a dirt parking lot, probably “technical difficulties”! I know there’s snow up there! Ride on!
