We had a great and busy weekend in the Northwoods! Monday and Tuesday we waited patiently as the forecast brought in some much needed snow! Several areas throughout the county received approximately 2-5" of snow, the center to the northern part of the county receiving closer to the 4-5". The southern part such as in the Birchwood and Flambeau area received approximately less than an inch.
Groomers have been out really working. After the busy weekend and the new snow fall most reports are that the trails are good to very good! There are some reports that bring in a fair trail report due to wide open trails on or near roads that have bareness and ice as some areas are rode heavier than others and need some more snow. There are some icy corners reported, this snow helped with a lot of them but please ride with caution as you may approach others. So to sum up, the majority of the trails are good to very good, more so to the north and on lakes and wooded trails and to the south fair conditions with bare spots until more snow. With that said the forecast looks beautiful!!! Snow for days to come in the next week and a half so this only tells us that the season is far from over! The forecast looks like Thursday could bring 1-3" and Fri 3-5"!! This will make for fantastic riding!! We will update as the weather progresses and as needed. So load up and get out there! There is lots of season left and good riding to be done! We will also be posting some videos of some grooming with the fresh snow.
An important note for riders this weekend, this Saturday is the American Birkebeiner Cross Country Race from Cable to Hayward! For those that aren't aware of this race it is the largest and one of the longest cross country ski race in North America. It starts in Cable and finishes on Main Street in Hayward. It is a neat event to witness with a cool history behind it! The Birkie has many miles of ski trails between Hayward and Cable and if you are riding in this area (also known as The Seeley Hills) you will see intersections crossing those trails. Please be cautious and courteous as we want all that out there enjoying the Northwoods beautiful winter to be safe and have a great time! Again, if you encounter the race or are in one of the two towns during give the racers a cheer! We wish all racers the best of luck!
Surrounding counties report to be in good condition so your riding is unlimited!

Thank you to all groomers, club members and volunteers for your hard work to ensure us all of a successful ride!
