trail update

DATA trails are officially closed.  We had OK snow and fair trails for about 10 days in the middle part of January.  After the 4 days of 40+ degree temps with the rain, we lost most of it and haven’t seen much since.  Hopefully we get another cold spell, with some more arctic blasts of snow where we could possibly re-open the trails. Frustrating.

USXC race update

The USXC cross country snowmobile race will run only from Winnipeg to Thief River Falls.  Racers will not travel south to Parkers Prairie, Alex, Willmar etc.  There simply isn’t snow for it again.  They will try the complete race event (to Willmar) again next year.

trail update

Due to the temps and recent periods of rain, unfortunately, the trails are in poor condition.  Hopefully, we’ll see some measureable snowfall in February.

The Staff at Lake Carlos State Park has asked that snowmobilers please be respectful by staying on designated snowmobile trails and off ski trails!
