Both the west loop at Nose Lake and the Cassain Trail from the Timber Lake parking lot to the Beaver Lake parking have been mowed. If you are looking for another trail to hike or bike, they are available. We will continue to mow them as needed throughout the summer.
In light of the recent weather along with today’s rain, we are suspending grooming operations at the three trail systems.  We would like to thank everybody for using the trails this winter, and look forward to seeing you again next winter.
It looks like we are in for one more day of the melt down.  So if the need to ski is to hard to resist, try to ski in the early morning, or early evening to preserve the trails.  The base is still in good shape, but with colder temperatures on the horizon, overuse could […]
Received 1-2 inches of snow last night.  Today we ripped up Washburn and Nose Lake and reset the tracks and skate deck(Washburn).  Tomorrow we will be retracking  Guy Hansen trail.  The groomers should be finished by early afternoon.
With the new snow(approx.2″) we tore up and reset everything at Washburn and Nose Lake. Tomorrow we will be replacing the track at Guy Hansen Trail(formerly Cassian).  Recently the trail was renamed in honor of Guy Hansen a member of the silent sport community who has promoted silent sports in the Rhinelander area.  Along with […]
As promised, Washburn was given a new deck and tracks today.  The groomers spent a good chunk of the day ripping up and resetting the deck and tracks.  Considering the condition of the snow, they did a remarkable job in getting the trails ready.  Satisfactory skiing will be available until our next groom.
As you would expect the weekend meltdown left all three trail systems very icy.  It did not leave our groomers very workable snow.  However, we did get out and tear things up. Nose Lake was tracked on Monday, and is very skiable.  I skied both loops today, and I had a great ski.  The tracks […]
For those lost skis the phone number for the Oneida Cty. Forestry garage is 715-362-9283. Leave message if there is no answer.
A pair of skis and poles were left at Perch Lake, possibly late yesterday. Contact Oneida County Forestry to be reunited with them. They are currently being stored at the forestry shop on forest loop road.
Nose Lake had its tracks tore up tonight and reset, as well.  Unfortunately, the groomer, snow and myself could not get on the same page.  The end result was a track that I was not pleased with.  The track will firm up tonight, but there are some crumbly components.  It is definitely skiable, but it […]
