Dane County snowmobile trails may open this weekend

MADISON, Wis. —  Snowmobile trails across Dane County may be opening soon, with a winter storm predicted for this weekend.

The Dane County Snowmobile Club said it is monitoring the weather and trail conditions to decide if it’ll be safe to kick off the season.

For trails to be open, there needs to be at least 6 inches of snow and steady below freezing temperatures.

There are over 500 miles of snowmobile trails within Dane County, and a State Snowmobile Trail Pass is required to ride.
