Kewaunee County tightens its grip on snowmobiling season

You might still be able to sneak in some snowmobiling in Kewaunee County if you hurry this week.


Thanks to the work of the county’s snowmobile clubs, the Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreations announced on Friday the trails would be partially reopened Saturday morning thanks to another coating of snow and colder temperatures. Those areas included Kewaunee County Snowmobile Trail Sections 1 in Red River, Section 2 in Algoma, Section 3 in Luxemburg, and the partial Opening of Section 4 in Kewaunee. A section of the trail south of intersection 18 to Tisch Mills had to remain closed as of Friday’s announcement. Even though they had to cram in all of their trail time in late February and early March, snowmobilers have had a season almost twice as long as they have had in recent years. Lonnie Fenendael of the Algoma Snowriders says the lack of frost has made it challenging to maintain the trails, but he is happy with the work the county’s snowmobile clubs have done to keep them open.

Kewaunee County snowmobilers could rejoice that much of the area received another five to seven inches of snow, which was part of the reason why Algoma and Kewaunee schools were forced to close their doors on Monday. The good news will be short-lived however with temperatures in the 40s predicted for Wednesday and Thursday.
