Jon Daniels, Marathon County Motorized Recreation Administrator, has announced that due to unseasonably warm weather and deteriorating conditions, snowmobile trails in Zones 3 and 4 will temporarily close at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, February 14th. By closing, snowmobile clubs hope to preserve the trail base for re-opening trails. The snowmobile clubs anticipate re-opening trails once cold weather returns and trail conditions improve.
Trails in Zones 1, 2 and 5 remain open at this time.
