Snowmobile Trail Reports 2015-16 Archives


March 9, 2016

Trail Conditions: CLOSED
We ended with a bang selling out the final weekend and having some good trail conditions for all those who made one last trip up north. Overall we had a great year and want to thank all of you for your business. Also a big thanks to the area snowmobile clubs and of course we couldn’t have done it without our staff! Let’s start counting down till next season!

Trail Conditions: Fair

Temperatures on Saturday hit 50, created a very slushy trail throughout the area. Temperatures have been cold since and everything froze over to ice. Groomers have been out all over the area in the last 36 hours. Amazing what they can do, some trails already being reported as good. Overall I will downgrade the entire system to fair because the cross roads are bear corners are icy but there is some good riding out there. Some snow in the last 24 hours I intend to ride this afternoon and get a better idea of where we are.

Trail Conditions: Fair to Good

Temperatures have stayed down, groomers have been working overtime, trails are 100% better than they were last weekend. We are getting reports from everything Mercer North that is in excellent condition. Around town the black top is showing, trails  that use roads are very thin, but the grade and other trails are excellent. Should be another great weekend in the Northwoods. Saturday night we will be welcoming in the Kyle Mertz Band. 9 p.m.

Trail Conditions: Poor to Fair

The winter warm up seems to have passed as it is finally below freezing but the damage has been done. We lost a lot of snow but it is hard to tell the conditions of the trails until the groomers get back out. They haven’t groomed in three days due to the warm temperatures. Our prediction is that the trails will be good in the woods, corners will be icey and thin, roads/intersections/towns will be down to the asphalt.  Check back in a couple days for a more detailed report for the weekend.

Trail Conditions: Excellent

Just finished two amazing weeks of riding in the Northwoods. Traffic on the weekends has been as busy as ever and trails will deteriate throughout the day, but groomers have been working hard on the weekend to keep up with the trails and most reports we get from riders (EVEN ON THE WEEKENDS) have been GREAT. We rode Sunday for 120 miles and didn’t find a bad trail out there. We will be keeping an eye on the weather as the extended forecast has some warm temperatures ahead, but for those of you up during the week, SAFE RIDE and ENJOY!! Music coming up on Friday2/19 with Dave Steffen.

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.
