Hi Everyone ~
We have an update on trail conditions from the U. P. Thunder Riders Snowmobile Club. With the extra 8″ of snow this week, they say there is a world of difference on the trails. Our guests have reported they couldn’t have been happier to be here this week…great trails and a lot of fun to boot! We had a little drizzle with temps above freezing yesterday, but it didn’t hurt us at all. We have over freezing temps coming tomorrow, but it should not affect us especially since it will be a cloudy day. It’s a great time to come up!
The following is the trail report we received:
Trail 3 North to Bond Falls: Very good
Trail 3 South to Wisconsin: Very good (we heard this afternoon this one was a little rough but the groomers were/are out this afternoon and tonight)
Trail 2 West of Watersmeet – Good with one signed wet area west of Trail 13 South
Trail 2 East of Watersmeet – Very good
Trail 13 South – Very good
Large snow “bumps” can form by the numerous bridges on our trail system in between groomings. Please slow up and cross the bridges at an appropriate speed and please be careful.
We have one opening starting on Saturday, February 18, for Presidents’ Weekend at Island View. All of our other homes open up either on February 19 or 20. If you are looking for a great place to stay, please give us a call at 906-358-4390 or 715-360-6650. Thanks much…we hope to help. There’s plenty of winter and great sledding to come yet this winter!
P. S. The fish were biting this weekend, too. Some nice catches of bluegills and large northern were reported! The weather cooperated, too. Today was pretty windy out there, but if the fish are biting nobody seems to care!!!
