Snowmobile Trail Conditions Land O Lakes, WI Watersmeet, MI

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

I always enjoy days like today. I got the chance to help 3 new riders enjoy the sport. We didn’t ride very far, but it was a relaxing fun day for all of us. We started off in Land O Lakes and headed up trail 3 to Big Mamma’s restaurant in Watersmeet, MI. After a great breakfast, we hit the trail and headed North to trail 2 West. Both of these trails were in great shape (as usual for the Watersmeet club).

We arrived at Rogers bar and enjoyed a short break. Sue is always fun to talk to and makes the time fly by. We got on the sleds again and took local trail 13 south across the Cisco Chain of Lakes. There were a few challenging spots when we crossed the portages, other than that we couldn’t have asked for better conditions.

We made a stop at Black Oak and got some food. Black Oak is a great place to stop if you are in the area, you won’t leave hungry! After stopping at Black Oak we took trail 6 East back into Land O Lakes. This trail tends to get icy in the corners, so keep an eye out for that!

Snowmobile Trail Conditions Winchester, WI Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

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!
