Hodag Sno Trails: The Best Conditions in Several YearsSubmitted: 02/08/2013
Story By Ryan Abney

RHINELANDER - You can finally see that snow sticking on the Northwoods snowmobile trails.
It's never a bad thing for outdoor enthusiasts.

Hodag Sno Trails' President, Jim Wimberger maintains 150-miles of snowmobile trails here in Rhinelander. With how winter has been so far--it's better late than never.

"This last little rain we got helped out because it gave us a real solid base. The trails are in excellent shape. They're probably the best I've seen in years because we have that nice solid base."

Conditions are so great---Kenosha County can't even resist. That's just under 300-miles southeast of Rhinelander.

But you won't hear Kenosha's Snowmobile Alliance President Bob Toby complaining about the long trip.

"We've been riding for a week back packing town to town. Made it as far east as Crivitz. Now we're on our way back to Phillips. It's a riot...we've been doing it for a while and it's a ball doing it.

Tomorrow's Northern Vintage Snowmobile Race in Pelican Lake is sponsored by Hodag Sno Trails.

All the fun kicks off at 10 a.m.
