Trail Report: St. Germain
Reported By: Ken Jackson – Jackson’s Lakeside Cottages
Date of Report: 12/16/2014
Trail Conditions: Early Season
Snow Cover: minimal
Area Report: We have difficult conditions for riding right now. 3 days of wet and warm conditions wrapped up last night and we will drop below freezing today for good.
We got about an inch of snow this morning and it is sticking. There is 4 to 7 inches of snow in the woods right now.
The good news is that the lake ice is setting up correctly and the freeze is helping there. With a good solid base of lake ice, we will hopefully have less slush later on once the snow depths increase.
The rest of the week looks quiet weather-wise, but we still have time before the holiday riding week.
Check back for more updates.

St. Germain, Wisconsin… the NUMBER ONE vacation spot in the North and the NUMBER ONE spot for snowmobiling fun. The unique little village of St. Germain is well known for its fine network of snowmobile trails. The local snowmobile club, the St.Germain Bo-Boen Tribe, has developed a trail marking system and engineered grooming equipment that is copied nationally and internationally. The Club owns three grooming machines, drags, and has built and maintains nearly 100 miles of well-marked trails that connect with their neighboring communities in Vilas and Oneida Counties. They are opened in early December depending on snow conditions.

Bring your camera for an unforgettable holiday of watching the winter wildlife, pines weeping form the heavy snow, white birch sparkling in the winter sunshine and stars at night looking so close you feel you can reach out and touch them.
