County's northern trails open Thursday
space
It’s been a long time coming, but portions of the Langlade County snowmobile trails will open Thursday morning.

Langlade County Forest Administrator Erik Rantala announced this morning that Zone A will open at 8 a.m., hopefully easing the drought of wintertime activities caused by sparse snowfalls.

Zone A covers the northern and eastern areas of the county, missing the area around the central agricultural fields and to the south and west. Rantala stressed that riders should consult the new 2017-2018 snowmobile map as to the specific areas that are open, since section boundaries have changed. A link to the map is located at www.langladecounty.org.

Trail conditions in the wooded northern and eastern parts of the county will be in fair condition, with the exception of some low lying areas that may be rough, Rantala said. Trails in open fields and across lakes may be drifted and also lacking in snow cover; please use extreme caution in these areas. Expect early season riding conditions throughout the trail system.

Trails will be open to ATV’s after Jan. 28 and when the temperature is below 28 degrees.

Among the riders anticipating the opening is Dave Peterson of White Lake, who is dusting off his 2017 Polaris he purchased last year from Antigo Yamaha.

Peterson maintains an active role in the sport. He is president of the Langlade County Snowmobile Council, director from Langlade County to the State Association of Wisconsin Snowmobiles and on the board of directors for the Lily Sno-Birds.

Peterson has over a half-century of snowmobiling under his belt, getting introduced to the sport when he made his first trip to Antarctica while stationed in the military in fall, 1962.

While there, he was able to ride and operate a new snow machine which soon came to be called the snowmobile.

Five years after that outing, Peterson bought his first snowmobile, a 1957 Polaris Colt, from Archie’s Baits in Antigo. His wife, Judy, wrote the check for $895.07. They still have the receipt and he’s still got the sled.

Dave Peterson will be pulling out his 2017 Polaris for riding starting Thursday. His first sled, the 1957 Polaris Colt on the right, will likely remain in the garage.
