UNDATED (WHBL) - A member of a central Wisconsin snowmobile club said his local trails were open for only five days last winter. Randy Thurs of the Trail-mates’ club in Wausau is looking for a lot longer season this time around. His club has 150 members who groom about 80 miles of snowmobile trails. And they’re hoping the new snow from the weekend will stay around – with a fresh topping of the white stuff – so they can get to work. The Wausau region had around eight inches of snow yesterday and this morning. Parts of north central and northwest Wisconsin opened their snowmobile trails today – namely in Vilas, Bayfield, Douglas, and Burnett counties. Up to 16 inches of new snow fell in parts of the northwest. Lingering snow was expected to clear out tonight, with colder temperatures expected in the single digits and teens by daybreak tomorrow.
