LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - Even though last week’s first major snow storm of the season dumped eight inches on La Crosse County, local officials say the area needs more snow and colder temperatures.
The snowmobile trails in La Crosse County remain closed. The delay is caused by soft ground and bare spots along the 185 miles of trails in the county and that’s frustrating riders.
It’s also hurting local businesses. The owner of a bar and tavern says this time of year has been great for his business in the past and he’s hoping things change soon.
The head of the La Crosse County Snowmobile Alliance says the forecast got people’s hopes up, but the area didn’t get as much snow as they were hoping for.
