Snowmobile Enthusiasts Spirits Dampened By Lack Of Snowfall

(Madison) Southern Wisconsin has seen less than 10 inches of snow this winter and that continues a trend dating back more than five years.  A majority of Wisconsin’s snowmobile trails are still closed as mid-January approaches, including all trails in Dodge County.  The Association of Wisconsin Snowmobiling Clubs says from 2005-to-2012 trails routinely stayed open for longer than a month.  Dane County has not been able to keep its trails open longer than a week since 2014.  So far, this is the second-warmest winter on record in the region.
