Hodag Sno Trails: The Best Conditions in Several Years
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.

The AARP Foundation's Tax Aide program is coming to Rhinelander to help with tax preparation for free.

The program's tax preparers will meet with people at the Rhinelander Oneida Senior Center to help prepare and e-file tax returns (Federal, State, and Homestead Tax Credits) beginning February 4th.
