2015 WINTER TRAIL AND SLEDDING CONDITIONS Proper conditions for grooming ski trails vary depending on amount of snow, current temperatures, wind, etc. Waukesha County monitors these conditions regularly in order to make sure we start the grooming process as soon as possible after or during a snow event. Once we have established packed and tracked trails, we will update the website.
Updated every Tuesday and Friday by 5:00 pm starting November 25.
Reminders Fox River Park, Muskego Park, and Retzer Nature Center have packed trails only for use by hikers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers. These trails will not be tracked.
At Menomonee, Minooka, and Nashotah Parks, hikers must remain on designated trails.
Snowshoe TrailsThere are no specific snowshoe trails. We ask that all snowshoers refrain from using the groomed ski trails, so we can keep them in the best condition possible. Please follow the signs.
Snowshoes are available to rent at Retzer Nature Center for:$9.00 all day $5.50 half day - For more information please call (262) 896-8007.
