As temperatures grow colder and we start seeing snow in the forecast, snowmobile enthusiasts grow anxious, but the DNR says that most trails need more snow before grooming can begin. Minnesota’s snowmobile trails officially open on December 1st each year and conditions must be met before trails are open, groomed and ready for travel. The ground must be frozen, there must be adequate snow cover, and trails must be cleared of fallen trees, signs put in place, and gates opened. When trails do open, the DNR urges riders to use caution as early trails still may have tree debris, unfrozen swamps, rocks, or closed gates.
