Cross Country Cruisers Trail Report 1-10-19
Well for those of you that are thinking about a possible trip to the Northwood’s it is time to pack those bags and load them sleds! We are without a doubt heading into the best riding so far this season this upcoming weekend!
With the wet 4 to 5 inches of snow last Sunday night and into Monday, theCruisers have taken full advantage and groomed our trails into their best condition this season. Along with some colder temperatures and some light lake affect this week Cruisers trails are looking very good!
Trail 3 very good, trail 5 is fair to good, trail’s 10, 11,17,47,51, and the Bear Skin are all very good! We hope to get through the one small swampy area remaining on trail 17 with the groomer tonight. Trail 70 in town received some love yesterday morning and was groomed the best it could be for the conditions. Hopefully we can continue to improve this trail weekly with more snow.
Lake Minocqua remains unmarked and considered very dangerous near the south west side of the Hwy 51 Bridge! Please avoid this area! This area is being monitored by many and does look to be improving but as of this writing it is still deemed unsafe for snowmobile traffic. Let`s all be safe out there and hope this area improves to a safe condition soon! All of the other Lakes in the Cruisers area are marked, please stay by the markers!
Don`t forget about the Cruisers Winterfest fundraiser this weekend, we are located just off of trail 17, 51 by Big Arbor Vitae Drive. Stop and say HI, we will have plenty of food drink and raffles! Also the WKSRA Kitty Kat Races will be going on all day! These young boy`s and girl`s really get into this amazing sport and are a ton of fun to watch!
We look forward to seeing all of you out enjoying our trails and please Ride Right Ride Safe!!
The Magic of Winter – Sled the Vast, White Northland
Thanks to the hard work of our many snowmobile clubs and volunteers, an extensive network of professionally groomed trails – more than 1600 miles – are maintained. A magnificent natural environment with 1300 glacial lakes and 233,000 acres of public forest lands provide a perfect setting for snowmobilers in the Minocqua – Arbor Vitae – Woodruff Area. Take off in any direction to sled on the spacious and well marked routes throughout the forests. The locale features a number of trail side pit stops – step inside, enjoy the atmosphere, but please be responsible. Don’t drink and drive !
