Trail Conditions: Very Good to Excellent
Snow Cover: 23" with a few inches of new snow in the past couple of days with lots of drifting and packing of snow
New snow! Dedicated U. P. Thunder Riders Snowmobile Club groomers who are doing an awesome job! Great trails! Super places to stay! Lots of great businesses to make your snowmobile trip the best! Don't wait...make plans to come up soon!
Our groomers have the latest report on our trails and are now saying that our trails are in EXCELLENT condition:
Trail 2 east of Watersmeet is excellent
Trail 2 east of Watersmeet is excellent with some icy corners
Trail 13 south is good to excellent
Trail 3 north is excellent
Our trails are groomed every day or night. Our temps have been very cold...some nights in the -20s with winds that have packed the new snow that we have been getting. It surely has helped our trail system. Life is good...
If you are on the Cisco Chain, there are orange barrels for you to follow. We recommend staying on that trail for everyone's safety due to slush possibilities on all the area lakes.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Caryl DeBroder at our Chamber number at 906-358-9961. We always try to give you the best information on trail conditions that we can and will be honest about our trails here. Our season got off to an early start, and we're so happy to have such great snow to provide you with a memorable sledding get away. We invite you to check out the rest of our website here for more information, too.
Thanks for checking out our report. We hope to see you real soon. We have all kinds of great accommodations here from resorts, private homes, and motels, and to a historic hotel and a large casino resort complex. We always invite you to "stay where you play"! We've had lots of calls recently about whether or not the resorts in the area will rent daily rather than weekly here in the winter. Most of the resorts and private homes are very happy to rent out for less than a week at this time of the year, so just give them a call. Our area has something for everyone! Plus we have businesses that can rent you sleds or do repairs for you, great places to eat and enjoy for a pitstop, grocery stores, gas stations, gift shops, and just about anything else you'll need to make your stay the best ever.
If you need a trail map, just request one from us at email@example.com. We'll be happy to get one out to you along with our area brochures.
Correction on Snowmobile Trail Reports for MSAsnow and WUPCVB's Michi Web report: They reported that Cisco Lake Resort on Cisco Lake on the Cisco Chain closed. That is true. They also reported that there is nowhere else on the Cisco Chain to get gas. That is NOT true!!! Vacationland Resort, The Arrows, and Wilderness Bay on Thousand Island Lake on the Chain all have gas available. I have calls out to Bent's Camp to see if they'll have gas available this year but haven't heard back from them yet. Please rest assured that when you come to the Cisco Chain that you will be able to gas up your sleds here! We are all here to make your snowmobile trip the best ever!!!! Come on up!
Cross-Country Ski Trails are also in excellent shape. And the fish are biting on area lakes. No matter what your sport, it's an awesome time to head up to the Watersmeet area! If you just want to sit and relax, the views and the snows are beautiful. If you are feeling snow deprived where you are, why don't you plan a trip our way really soon? We'll leave the lights on....
