STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) -- Sure, it’s been cold, but that’s not enough to keep all of the snowmobile trails open. The warm weekend coupled with the lack of heavy, wet snow has most Portage County snowmobile trails closed.
There has been nearly 20 inches of snow in the region so far this winter, but much of the snow was the light and fluffy variety which doesn’t last.
Many of the area snowmobile clubs that maintain the trails are hoping for 4-6 inches of new, heavy snow. The forecast, so far, doesn't look good for snowmobilers in Portage County.
