Snowmobile season is underway!

Recent snowfall has greatly improved trail conditions especially the further north you ride. The 9 mile local access trail is ride-able but a little rough. The CJ Ramstad/North Shore State Trail was in Excellent condition according to some of our guests yesterday. You can also trailer 8 miles up Hwy. 2 to the DNR parking lot for direct access to the State Trail. Any additional snowfall will greatly improve conditions of the local access trail.
