Snowmobile trails not good across southern Wisconsin

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - With all the snow we have, you'd think that Wisconsin has perfect trails for snowmobiling -- but that's not always true.

Travel Wisconsin.Com says the northern half of the state has good to excellent trails. In the south, where there's a lot less snow, most trails are fair to good -- the ones that are open, anyway.

Green County only has part of its snowmobile trails open. The same is true for Sauk, La Crosse, and Trempealeau counties.

Snow depths in the north are great for all types of winter recreation -- 33 inches at Phelps, 30 at Whitehall, and 23 at Medford.

Madison only has a six inch snow cover -- and the same is true at Prairie du Chien and at Genoa in Vernon County.

Southern Wisconsin is expected to get the brunt of the snow from the next storm system that's supposed to move through Saturday. Grant and Kenosha counties, in the far southern corners of the state, are expecting around five inches. One to three inches are possible further north.
