Snowmobile Trail Conditions1/21/20 - Currently 5:30 P.M. There is nothing new to update. Got a couple snowmobiles in and they said the trails were okay. The sun came out and the temps are creeping up, we need more snow or else what we have will be as good as gone. You could probably ride tonight, but by tomorrow you can stick a fork in it. New storm coming this week, maybe we will get a lot of snow from it? However the temps wont help matters any. Will update again when somnething happens. Think snow!
1/20/20 - Currently 10:00 A.M. We had quite a few snowmobiles ride in yesterday. Sounds like the heavy wet stuff set up for a hard base. Riders were saying the trails were decent, given the amount of snow. There sounds to be a lot of water holes out there though. We have had some cold temps at night so hopefully they will freeze up. There’s a massive water hole between Lawton and the highway headed towards paw paw. Three snowmobiles got buried from what I was told. Lawton south begins to thin out. Paw paw and north then snow gets better. Given the way this year is going, I would ride today and tomorrow, and give it a break while the temps warm back up again. I wouldn’t make the trip from Chicago to come riding though. There just isn’t a ton of snow. If I were to guess, we maybe have 5-6 inches with 2-3 inches of heavy wet snow/ice. I haven’t hit the trail myself personally so I am going off what people told me yesterday when they stopped in.
1/19/20 - Currently 11:30 A.M. We received more snow last night. Very hard to say how much came down because it was windy as hell and was blowing everrywhere. It's currently snowing off and on. Decatur doesn't have as much as paw paw as far as snow goes. I cant give exact depths but if i were to guess we may have a total of 5 or 6 inches. I seen a couple of sleds and they came from Laawton and theyh said trails were good, but there are some big mudholes out there. Given all the rain we have had and not cold temps that doesnt surprise me. Assuming the trails are open, I would ride north from here. I would assume the snow only gets better. We open at 12:00 today! If you are out and about, stop in!
1/18/20 - It’s about 3:00 p.m. As I update this page. We received maybe 4” of snow. It has since rained and become very heavy, basically just slush. You can’t see the grass, it’s supposed to get colder and snow again. I would say there’s probably 3” on the ground of heavy wet snow. You definitely can’t go out and ride yet. They are calling for lake effect snow tonight and tomorrow and Monday. Maybe we will get enough to ride then. Shows a warm up next weekend so that sums up how this winter has been. Complete shit! Will update again tomorrow.
12/31/19 - Happy New Years Eve! We received about 2-4 inches of snow. The high winds have drifted it everywhere. Supposed to be upper 30s tomorrow and 40s the next couple days. Trails remain closed at this time. Hopefully the weather turns cold and stays there eventually soon. Have a wonderful New Years!
12/27/19 - What a piss poor Winter that has started out as! Nothing to update at this time. Weather looks to be a roller coaster with no real consistent cold predicted the next 10 days. Have a Happy New Year! Will update again when conditions change.
11/12/19 - Well if the trails were open i would say get out there and ride, but the trails are closed. We recieved well over a foot in the immediate surrounding areas. Let's hope December comes out firing on all cylinders as well.
11/11/19 - Looks like Winter has arrived early this year! The trails don't open up until December 1st so the only thing I can update you on as of now is current snow on the ground. As of 6:00 P.M. we have 3" We are supposed to get lake effect starting up here in a few hours so I will update in the morning! Hopefully this early snow and cold weather is a sign for things to come this upcoming snowmobile season. Fingers Crossed!
