NORTHWOODS - You may need to wait a little longer to go cross-country skiing on certain trails. Trails in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest are packed with snow, but they're not ready for skiers just yet.

"We found with the ground so warm, that all of the snow that we received in the last week really packed down to very little of a base," explained Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Lands and Recreation Program Manager Jeff Mell. "We're really waiting for that base to build up where we can put a track on top of it at this time."

The trails are still open for hiking and snow-shoeing, but motorized trails won't be open until December. Forest Service leaders want people to be careful out on the hiking trails this weekend and the week following. The lands and recreation manager explains that most times, winter activities and firearm season don't overlap.
