Conditions Good

Another crazy weekend on the Mercer Trail System, but Mother Nature gave us a couple more inches of snow today and the groomers have been out all week getting the trails back into shape. The feedback today from people out snowmobiling is the trails are awesome. Overall the trails are in good shape and the cold temps are helping us get through the last couple wet areas. We expect this to be a great weekend to ride. We do have some rooms left for this weekend so call today to reserve yours! 715.476.2440 or online at www.GreatNorthernMercer.com Also this weekend the Wolf’s Den Bar & Grill will be having Kyle Mertz on Friday night and Donny Pick and the Road Band on Saturday, both events run 9pm till 1am.

Trail 19 North of Cedar Lake Rd has some logging and is not being groomed yet

Trail 182 still needs some more work

14 and 9c are plowed and will not be groomed by us this year

Conditions Fair to Good

First as a reminder to everyone this Saturday is our Snowmobile Club’s Winter Blast at the Groomer Barn.

Pig Roast, Pancake Breakfast, Vintage Show, Kids Games, Live Music, Winter Blast Poker Run, Food-Beer-Soda-Coffee-Raffles and Free Admission! Stop in for a day full of fun!

As for the trails we saw another weekend with a lot of traffic. The club has been slow to get all the trails groomed because we have some down machinery, but we do continue to run around the clock to get everything put back together. We expect by Thursday all trails will be back to their Good Condition. This weekend is bringing cold weather and a lot more traffic. We expect the trails to hold up nicely but as the trails get rode watch out for icey corners. As for the Great Northern this weekend we have Dave Steffen Band on Friday night and Saturday night is DJ Justin Pitlik, all music starts at 9pm.

Trail 17 N S
Trail 51 E to MW

Trails have a solid base and we continue to get out and groom. There are still some wet areas but overall the system is in good condition.

Testimonials

Wedding Fun in the Northwoods

Loved the Great Northerner. My cousin got married in the back and the staff was awesome and making the stay personal. Bar was a lot of fun and breakfast did the trick. Would recommend 2nd floor for vehicle noise.

We had to stay here due to sell outs further north but were not disappointed. The rooms were big and clean. The hotel has a beautiful sitting area with Wi fi. Our room was not updated but it appears that they are in the process of doing so. The hotel is right on the ATV/Snowmobile Trail.

"A Very Nice Stay"

Good price, very large, nice room. I would stay here again. The area has lots to see and do. This facility has everything needed for large or small groups. The staff was friendly and professional. We enjoyed our stay and have nothing bad to say about this place. I recommend it.
