I'm going to keep this pretty simple. Everyone I've asked about the trails over the weekend exclaimed , "They are perfect.. doesn't get any better". I took a Viper for a ride yesterday afternoon, other than getting stuck because I like to go off trail on the Flowage, the trails were awesome, even at the end of the day. It was obviously a busy weekend, the bars were packed Saturday night, and the high line trail had chop to it. Also, trail 70 that leads you south out of St. Germain towards the Buffalo lake area had serious chop to it. (But on a Viper RTX you really don't seem to mind the chop lol ) Other than a few sections of Saturday wear and tear, the other trails were really great. I'd love to analyze this somehow for you, but just look at the photos. It's perfect, I hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy the beautful scenery and conditions. Opportunity knocks, I hope you get a chance to enjoy this..... the locals are. Now we start to look at some warm days ahead. At least for now, we're in the clear because the night time temps are well below freezing. But, ride it while you can.

The private and Wisconsin DNR cross country ski trails are groomed regularly! With up to 30" of heavy base on the ground, I think the cross country skiers will be happy too. Click on my cross country links below for updates on where the cross country ski trails are, and which trails the State is grooming.
Ice fishing conditions: I'm not going to lie, it still is tough fishing out there. But, I finally had some crappies caught by one guest this past weekend.... but it was after dark. The day time bite was slow, but after dark the fish started to bite more aggressively. The heavy snow and cold temps are the only reasons I can come up with for a slow bite. We're marking crappies, but the bite is really light. Recon for new spots will place you in the slush. Holes drilled in deep snow areas produced slush for the next day. So ice fishermen need a snowmobile, perhaps an atv to move around. Portable shacks are needed too, and I have 4 pop ups to loan out at the resort. The good news: we're marking more panfish on the Vexilar within walking distance of the cottages at my resort than anywhere else. Now if we could get them to bite!.
