in early-season condition
The state-funded snowmobile trail system in Vilas County will officially open this Friday, Dec. 13, at 6 p.m., with the exception of Phelps trails which will remain closed until further notice, according to Dale Mayo, county parks and recreation administrator.
While the snowmobile trails generally open following the statewide four-day antlerless deer hunt (Dec. 12-15 this year), this year’s early snow and ice conditions resulted in the Vilas County Forestry, Recreation and Land Department giving the early announcement.
