Marathon Co. snowmobile trails remain closed


Even though we had a fresh blanket of snow, it wasn't enough to re-open snowmobile trails in Marathon County.

Trail coordinators say we still need six more inches to get them up and running. Sunday's snow only brought about five inches.

County officials say area businesses really rely on the trails being open.

"It does have an impact on the hotels and the restaurants and gas stations. So, if trails aren't open, it has an impact," Marathon County Snowmobile Coordinator Jon Daniels told Newsline 9.

So far this winter, the trails have only been open for a few days. County officials say they're hoping Mother Nature brings more snow soon.
