Trail Report – : Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin – February 27, 2018

Reporter:Manitowish Waters Chamber
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 16-22 inches
Date of Report: February 27, 2018
Area Report:

 Overall I would say our trails are fair to good.  Had a great ride yesterday!  Trails are still good in the woods and shaded areas but trails that run along roads are getting snow dirt mix.  The grade through Mercer was still ok yesterday – the sun will take a toll on exposed areas.  Watch the weather and I will update often this week.  There is a chance of snow Thursday! RIDE SAFE. 

News and Reports:
A huge thank you to all who attended the Winterfest Rendezvous and those who purchased tickets on our Arctic Cat Raffle.  Congratulations to winner Dave Mueller!  Dave is a club member and helps out at Our Duck Race!   
Thank you to all of our volunteers that made our event a huge success! Some of these guys took 2 days off of work to help set the tent and organize everything.  This is a lot of work, but so rewarding to know that it went so well! Proceeds from the Winterfest and raffles go towards trail maintenance!
I am proud of how everyone pitched in to make this such a great event: from the people and businesses who donated raffle items, to those who attended and purchased raffle tickets and especially the volunteers! We look forward to next years events!
