Trail Report for March 18, 2016
Ely area snowmobile and cross country ski trails have bases of 0-1” in most areas and are considered to be in poor condition. Although we received approximately 10 inches of snow this week, area groomers and the DNR have ceased trail grooming for the remainder of the season. Use caution when traveling area trails and be aware that some portions of trails may be impassible due to standing water and slush conditions.
