Checkout the conditions on Minnesota Highway 6 south of Emily! This link will take you to the Minnesota Department of Transportation's camera showing Highway 6. The State updates the images several times per hour; the camera is located just south of Emily. Note: you can't see much at night!!
IMPORTANT: The road construction completed in the City of Emily last summer resulted in the addition of new sidewalks along Highway 6, and in some changes to our trail route through the city. The trails are marked; please stay on them! Note that snowmobiles are not allowed on the City sidewalks!! Also, there is what may appear to be a vacant lot on the northwest corner of Lake Street and 2nd Street, across from the Catholic Church. This is actually a MnDOT holding pond for a new storm sewer system, and has lots of drainage stuff in the middle of it. Please do not drive across this; the trail runs along the south and east sides of this lot. The City has been very accommodating to us during the trail change process, and we ask that everyone follow the rules. THANKS!
FRIDAY MARCH 22, 2019 UPDATE
It was a great season for snowmobiling, with some of the best snow in years! The Minnesota DNR requires that we close the trails on April 1, but unfortunately the warm temperatures are melting everything down, and we have made the decision to stop grooming operations for the season. Many thanks to all of the club volunteers who made this season a huge success; their efforts started last summer/fall with the maintenance efforts.....removing downed trees, brushing back the trails, performing maintenance work on the trail bridges and grooming equipment, etc. Then once the snow was here, countless hours were spent grooming the trails and keeping the equipment running. THANK YOU for your efforts!
Also, THANKS to all of the riders (both local and out-of-area) who came to ride our system, and shopped our local businesses; you are all an important part of the local winter economy in the Emily, Outing, and Fifty Lakes area, and we hope you had a great time!
The club is always looking for new members; if you are interested in joining, please print and mail the application form that is available on the "JOIN OUR CLUB" tab on the left side of this page. It's a good way to promote the sport, and meet with a great group of people year-round.
LOG YOUR TIME!
Please keep track of the time that you volunteer to help the club. This includes just about everything...i.e., trail clean up, trail grooming, equipment maintenance, administrative work, etc. This helps us with the reporting we are required to do to the State of Minnesota, plus it may make you eligible for an award at the end of the riding season! To record your time/activities, you can fill out the attached Log Sheet and drop it off at the Club House (additional copies are available at the Club House), or you can email the information contained on the form to [email protected]
