Well-Timed Rain Helped Extend Door County's Snowmobile Season

 

In a winter marked by abundant snowfall it was a well-timed rainfall that helped keep Door County's snowmobile trails in great shape for such a long time.

Door County Trails Association President Steve Sohns says usually mid-winter rain events are frowned upon but he says this one worked out perfectly. 

Sohns says many riders commented at Thursday's annual meeting of the Trails Association that they can't remember a winter where Door County's trails were in better condition.

"We had some seasoned veterans at the meeting that said they don't know that they've ever seen the trails as nice as what they were this year and all the years they've been riding," says Sohns. 

That's not to say there weren't problems.

Sohns says the biggest issue this season was with riders not staying on trails -- cutting corners and going in places they shouldn't be going.

Sohns says there were a couple of areas in particular where that was prevalent, including a farmer's field off of County Hwy ZZ in the Sister Bay area.

"It's one thing when somebody veers off a track and creates a trail and then you have other people that might follow that track but this was a case of just tracks everywhere," says Sohns. "Not a good situation, not a happy farmer, but hopefully we'll get past that." 

Sohns says election of officers also took place at the annual meeting, with all officers being re-elected to the same positions.
