Snowmobile Trail Reports
The warm up hit us hard last weekend, we had a lot of melting and lost a lot of snow. The grade held up well as it is packed solid but basically a sheet of ice. At this point we cannot open any additional trails, but Trail 17 (the grade) remains open. There is some hope as John Dee is forecasting we might see some accumulations in the next week. Let’s all hope for snow!

Condition: Early Season
**NEWS ALERT** Iron County Snowmobile Trails will open Thursday December 6th. Please expect early season riding. You will encounter some wet areas, some areas with thin snow, and not all trails have been groomed. At this time Wednesday afternoon, the only trail we have groomed is Trail 17 (the grade) from Lazy Ace heading north, this trail is fair to good with a nice base. Trail 182 will remain closed for this weekend. The gate at Hwy 51 past Lazy Ace. will remain closed until Vilas County opens their trails. Also, Trail 8A is not passable and will remain closed until we can complete a snow bridge. At this time the lakes are not marked and ice conditions vary this time of year, please use extreme caution. As we continue to groom more trails we will keep everyone updated. Let’s Ride! The Great Northern will run a Snowmobile Special for this weekend and next weekend, all rooms will be $89, just mention “Early Riding” at the time of booking.

“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.
