ONEIDA COUNTY (WAUSAU) — Snowmobile enthusiasts can rejoice as trails in the Northwoods are set to open this weekend.
Minocqua Forest Riders Snowmobile Club groomers were out in Oneida County on Friday prepping the trails.
A lack of snow so far this year has hindered some winter sports from getting up and running. Officials say they’re happy trails are opening over the holidays, giving families and visitors more time to enjoy them.
The Oneida County trails will open at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
As always, officials remind snowmobilers to be safe while out on the trails. Don’t use trails that haven’t been marked and don’t drink while operating.
Vilas County will also open trails on Saturday.
