Mother Natures bounty of snow has proven to a boon for those who love to ride those trails.
You’ll see them on the Gull Lake chain. There’s plenty of snowmobile traffic in and around Crosslake. Throughout the area, folks are having a blast on the back of those sleds.

Not all winters prove to be as cooperative as this years when it comes to providing those consistent snow falls that allow for a good riding season.
Reports from area trails continue to advise caution in swampy areas but most of those overland trails appear to be in very good shape.
Let’s not forget the efforts of those keeping those trails groomed. The Crow Wing County Snowmobile Trails Association include the Brainerd Snowdeos, The Fort Ripley Trail Busters, The Gull Lake Drifters, The Merrifield Marathons, The Baxter Snowmobile Club, The Emily/Outing Snowbirds, The Garrison Commercial Club, The Ideal SnoPros, The Pequot Lakes Brush Pilots, The Sno-Serpents Snowmobile Club and The Ponto Knight Riders. You can access trail information from these and other area groups on-line.
With weeks of winter to go, we’re looking good when it comes to snow.
