    Trail was rolled on Friday, 2/8/19, groomed and tracked on Sunday, 2/10/19. The trailer has a firm base and the track set well. Sunday's snow will fill the track some but it should still be defined to provide good skiing for the next several days until the next mid-week snow event.

    Trails were rolled/packed at Wintergreen yesterday and will try to be groomed again today. The snow is really deep and difficult to work with. Given that it is a holiday weekend though, The intent is to have A and B loops groomed and tracked by the end of the day, and possibly C loop. Monday is also a fee free day on the National Forest, so day use passes are not required.

This is a nice trail for snowshoeing as well but please use care not to snowshoe on the (2) parallel tracks used by skiers. The trailer is groomed wide enough to easily accommodate both activities

    Ice Fishing & Hunting Guide Reports

     The Flambeau River and the surrounding lakes in the State Forest such as: Connors, Lake of the Pines,(walleye, bass, musky, crappies, northern and panfish) Bass Lake (largemouth bass, panfish), Swamp, Pelican, Mason and Evergreen Lakes, are great places to fish. The lakes are ice covered with 20+ inches of ice.   Folks are placing their buckets, ice shanty’s and ice tents in strategic positions and heaters are a desired commodity out on the ice with the frigid temperatures we are experiencing.  They have been fishing for walleye on Connors Lake and crappies on Lake of the Pine with some success.  Mason and Evergreen Lakes are being fished for crappie, walleye and perch.  To learn more about ice safety, go to the DNR website and type in “ice safety”.
