Webb/Inlet snowmobile trails to close after strong season

The Town of Webb and Inlet snowmobile trails will close on Sunday, March 31, following one of the best snowmobile seasons the area has seen in years, according to Tim Pylman, head of the Webb Snowmobile Trail Maintenance crew.

“We had a slow start, but once the snow started coming, we never stopped. We had two groomers out last night (March 27)—which is unusual for this late in the season. We have had an excellent season,” Pylman said.

Though Pylman said trail activity this week has been light, over last weekend they saw plenty of use as sledders came to the area in droves to take advantage of the good late-season conditions.

It’s been a stark contrast to the conditions of the 2011/2012 season. Pylman said his crew put the snow fences away last year on March 19 after daytime temperatures reached the 70 degree mark.

Pylman’s records of last year show that the ice was out of Bald Mountain Pond on March 25,  White Lake on March 26, and  Fourth Lake on March 30. He said the average date of ice-out on Fourth Lake is April 18.
