Snowmobile Trail Conditions

To receive our snowmobile trail conditions newsletter, text TRAILS to 22828 or email us: info@lakevermilionresorts.com. Newsletters are sent out approximately once per week during the season - or when significant changes take place.

 

Arrowhead Trail

03-09-2017: Depth 8-18", Base 0-4" The entire Arrowhead is in poor condition. All grooming has been suspended indefinitely. Use caution when crossing the bridge in the Lost Lake swamp due to thin ice and open water. This bridge is located two miles north on the Arrowhead from the Hwy 1 crossing. Trails are frozen hard with frequent patches of ice and exposed ground. Where water was running across the trail and filling the corners during the warm weather, there are now sheets of ice. Furthermore, the trail base through creeks and wetlands is totally gone in spots and not reliable in most other spots. Please keep these things in mind and use caution when riding the trails. (Conditions reported from DNR)

Auro-bi, Moose and Ranger Trails

02-28-17 update: Trails in the woods are decent. Open areas and road crossings are bare. We will groom again if we get a little snow. (Conditions Reported by Ranger Snowmobile Club)

Bearskin Trail

02-21-17 update: Things around here are very tough with temps having reached the 50's for 5 straight days including almost an inch of rain. Lots of areas don't have any snow left and moving through town is difficult. (Conditions provided by the Cook Timberwolves Snowmobile Club)

Lake Vermilion and Soudan Underground Mine State Parks

03-09-17. Local snow depth is 0-10" Base 0-4" Due to multiple warm days and rain conditions the snowmobile trails in the park have been closed. There are many areas of the trail with standing water and lowland areas are not frozen. We do not expect to reopen them this season unless we receive a large amount of snow and wet areas freeze to allow for grooming once again. (Condition reported by DNR )
