Trail Report: Watersmeet
Reported By: Carole Yakel for the Watersmeet Chamber of Commerce
Date of Report: 04/08/2013
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Varies – little to a foot or more
Hi Everyone ~
I just wanted to update here and let you know that we got lots of rain last night and throughout the day. Even though we still have lots of snow in the woods and huge snowbanks everywhere, this rain today took a toll on the trails that I could see from the road this afternoon. They looked pretty thin near town and of course plenty slushy. This may be the beginning of the end. Weather reports are back and forth and we’re likely to have more snow, but there have to be plenty of wet spots out there now that may make trails much less than safe. You can call Caryl at the Chamber number, 906-358-9961 for updates or write me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We’ll be happy to help.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for coming up this year or in the past and hope you’re already thinking about the 2013-2014 snowmobile season. It’s been the pleasure of all the businesses in the area to help you with your stays. We know that you have many choices when making your get-away plans, and we are so happy that you have chosen our beautiful part of the northwoods to spend your valuable vacation time. We always invite you to stay where you play. We can’t say enough wonderful things about our groomers and all the wonderful volunteers of Watersmeet’s U. P. Thunder Riders Snowmobile Club and also the Land O’ Lakes Frosty Club. They work hard to make our trails here the best they can be. A huge thank you to all for another great sledding season.
If you love it here in the winter as much as we do, we would also like to invite you to come up in another season. Bring your ATVs up next time and enjoy seeing your winter snowy trails in a new and different way! Sightsee, fish, boat, hike, check out the waterfalls, visit the casino or bingo, or just come on up and relax. We hope to see you again soon.
Thanks so much for everything. If we have any changes, I’ll update. If not it won’t be long until December comes around again, and we’ll be reporting for you again. Take care and have a great year. Thank you….
