Reported By: Barry Hopkins
Date of Report: 03/27/2014
Trail Conditions: Very Good
Snow Cover: 28″ – 32″
Area Report: Our trails are in very good condition. This is the best I’ve seen it this late in the year. Our club is still grooming, beware that some clubs have scaled back grooming so some trails in other areas may be bumpy. We rode up through MW, Mercer and White Thunder trails yesterday and everything was beautiful. I have never seen the Grade this nice through Mercer at this time of year!!!. Ride safely and watch for deer on the trails. Had a great ride Monday in MW and Boulder. Trails remain open until midnight March 31st. Thank you for your continued support. Without your support we wouldn’t be able to provide the excellent trails we have. Looks like several inches of snow on its way tonight This will be the best “Last weekend” ever!

With Minocqua/Woodruff to our south, St. Germain/Eagle River to our southeast, Lake Gogebic to our north, Presque Isle/Winchester to our northeast, Mercer and Hurley to our northwest and Lac du Flambeau/Price County to our west, our area residents and guests can choose from a variety of daily or overnight destinations for scenic riding with excellent pit stops along the way.
The Manitowish Waters Sno-Skeeters maintain an active grooming schedule for the area’s trail system. Coordinated efforts with the surrounding communities provide continuous smoothly-groomed trails in this northwest sector. The Sno-Skeeters own and operate some of the newest grooming equipment on the market today.
