The Itasca Driftskippers love their 72 miles of trails. But the heavy, wet snow that’s come down recently has caused the trees to cover the trails.

“We’ve got about 15 miles cleared, the way we want them to be,” Rusty Eichorn shared. He’s the president of the Driftskippers.

“Now is the time to reach out to your club, which is mostly volunteers, to help out. It’s a daunting task, to clear these trails. We want people to enjoy them,” he added.

Snowmobiling is a major recreational sport for the state.

Bayfield County said their trails are open, but some are impassable.
