Watersmeet Snowmobile Trail Report through January 5, 2015

Reported By: Carole Yakel for the Watersmeet Chamber of Commerce

Trail Conditions: Very Good to Excellent

Snow Cover: 14 – 18″

Our groomers have been very busy and continue to groom daily or nightly.  Our trails are smooth and awesome and reported in very good to excellent.  Wet spots have frozen up, and it doesn’t get much better than this.  We had another 3″ of snow yesterday.  It turned really cold with -20 actual degrees last night.  At 3 p.m. today, we’re still at -2 degrees.  Winds yesterday helped to pack the snow tight.  Predictions are for continuing cold (although not as cold as last night and some snow off and on).  It’s cold and sunny out here today, and we wish you were here to enjoy our wonderful snowmobile trails!  Why not get a group together and come up really soon! 

If you have any questions, please email me at visit@watersmeet.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 visit@watersmeet.org.  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 and The Arrows both have gas available throughout the year for sure.  Wilderness Bay is undecided at this time, and I have calls out to both Jay’s Resort and Bent’s Camp to see if they’ll have gas available this year.  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!
