The trails were great today, but it ended up being a rough trip for us. We started off headed South and then West on trail 8 towards Boulder Junction. After arriving in town we got gas and then ate breakfast at the Outdoorsman restaurant. We then continued further West towards Manitowish Waters, WI. The trails were in AWESOME shape. I haven’t seen the trails this good in at least 3-4 seasons. There is hardly anyone in the area this week and the groomers have done an excellent job keeping the trails perfect! On our way towards Manitowish Waters, one of the people in our group had an accident and banged up the hood on their sled. We limped that sled back to our place and dropped it off. Then we took trail 11 North to Michigan and then trail 2 East to trail 13 South.

We stopped at Rogers Bar for a pizza and pop. After our short break we headed across the Cisco chain and made our way back to Land O Lakes. Almost every trail was in perfect condition and we couldn’t ask for anything better. If you get a chance to ride in the area any time soon, be sure to do it!

Today we headed West for some Polaris parts. We took trail 6 West…..destination North Country Polaris in Manitowish Waters, WI. All of trail 6 West was in excellent shape. I shot a few videos, but some didn’t turn out due to some technical difficulties. After breakfast I noticed the problem and was able to correct it.

After arriving at North Country Polaris we noticed they were closed. DOH!

We turned around and went East on trail 6 back towards Presque Isle. Then we hooked up with Trail 1 North to trail 2 East. Trail 1 was a little choppy and the corners were icy mainly from the amount of traffic.

Once we hit trail 2, we were in heaven! I’ve never seen this trail so flat and perfect!

It was a 10 out of 10 with no question! After arriving in Watersmeet we took trail 3 South to Land O Lakes and then we called it a day.

Cold, ice cold! That’s what we woke up to this morning. Around 8am the temp was -24 (yes, NEGATIVE 24) and it warmed up to all of -10 for the high. Needless to say, none of us were very motivated to get on the sleds today. We ended up leaving the house around 2pm and made our way to the Pea Patch Saloon in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin on trail 6 West.

Trail 6 West to Manitowish Waters

They had the game on, so we hung out in there for a while. After the game was over we headed East on trail 6 to trail 14 to the Bear Bar in Winchester Wisconsin. We warmed up there and then headed for home. We were only gone for 4 hours and barely put on any miles, but it was good to get out of the house. The trails were in really good shape other than the icy corners. The snow earlier in the week really helped fill in the thin areas and with the cold temps, many people were staying in doors so there wasn’t a whole lot of traffic on the trails this weekend.

I apologize for all of the videos! Somehow the camera got tilted so it looks like I’m riding sideways!
