Lakewood Cross Country Ski Trails - The entire trail was PB groomed today. The trail is still in early season condition due to a thin base with undulating skate deck and areas of stubble. The middle of the skate deck sometimes has a mixture of snow and leaves. All and all, the trails is worth the drive north and in very good condition considering the small amount snow we have received. I would use your B+ to A without worry. The tracks are firm and fast with leaf accumulation in some areas.

Nose Lake Ski Trail: Exceptional conditions prevail at this system. The track is firm and snow cover is good. With warm weather heading our way, this could be one of the bright spots in Northern Wisconsin, well into the weekend. Eight great miles of finely maintained classic trail, minutes from Highway 51. A great idea, if you are out skiing in the Northwoods, this week. Northwood Golf Course: The Northwood Trail was in excellent, freshly groomed condition on 1/14 under sunny skis. Classic tracks were perfect this morning and the freshly rilled skate deck was flat, fresh, and ready for your best skis. Cassian Two-Way Ski Trail: Tracks were reset 1/18. Coverage is good, but there are some oak leaves falling into the track on the north end. Washburn Lake Ski Trails: The Washburn Trails were as good as they get midwinter. The trails were freshly groomed this 1/17 and had been only lightly skied. Glide was very good in mid teens temperatures. Both the skate deck and classic tracks were near perfect--smooth and even. No dirt spots, grass, or rocks at all. Visit www.ExploreRhinelander.com for information on lodging, things to do, trip ideas and more!

Trails range from easy, such as the Purple Trail running along the Willow River, to the challenging Brown and Silver trails. Trails are groomed for both classical and skate skiing. Trail Length is 26K and not lit. All grooming is done by volunteer groomers who pride themselves in providing the best possible conditions. Conditions: Classic track was being cut full depth due to more than the predicted snowfall. I ran an A set of classic skins on the deck mostly. Newly cut classic track is fragile, especially after dry snow like we got Sunday. It takes some time for track to set up. Plus, the full depth cut was occasionally exposing material beneath in enough places to not run A skis in track. Having said that, there was a short stretch of track that was firm enough and clean. It ran fast. The trip was the Purple, the Green through the campground, up the hill on the Yellow and across the road to the Brown. It sure was slow on the deck on a fast set of skis. I skied track on the Brown through the group camp up to the high point. Skiing down the series of hills the Brown offers cooled off any overheating concerns. Out of track I almost flew the S turn. At the double drop I carried the third little roller also. Overall, I would say the Brown ran about medium speed on the deck. Classic track skiers, stick with the B set. If you are solid on your out of track skills, you could run the A set. Be careful on road crossings. Skaters can run the A set and you might have to dodge organic stuff like pine cones and needles. With the wind, drifting is filling in groomed work. Reported as of Monday, January 15, 2018

Down came the rain and washed it all away... When the snow comes back, cross country skiers and snowshoers are welcome to check out Janesville's parks, trails and greenbelts. Volunteers groom trails at Rockport Park and Riverside Golf Course as time allows after we have 6" of snow. Riverside has three groomed trails, about 1 mile each (one cross country, one skate skiing and a walking trail). Rockport Park offers Janesville's most extensive cross country skiing with over 6 miles of diverse trails, color coded for your enjoyment. Trails at Riverside Golf Course may be groomed as volunteers are available. Parking is available in the golf course parking lot with access to the trails on the west side of the building. Although these are the only groomed trails, cross-country skiing is allowed in any city park and our 500 acre greenbelt system. Cross country ski (and snowshoe) equipment is available for rent. Deposits are required and held until the equipment is returned on time and in acceptable condition. Reserve early as sizes are limited and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rock County Parks also offer cross country skiing options. Gibbs Lake and Carver-Roehl are suitable for beginner and intermediate skiers, and Magnolia Bluff is best for experts. Contact Rock County at 608-757-5450.

1/22/18 ~ Yesterday's fog and today's rain have taken what ever snow we had on the trails. So.......Until the next snow. This year we are please to announce that the Ishnala trail will be open with a new downhill trail section! The last couple of years have seen some trail disruption with the installation of the high power lines along the Interstate. Because this line is going right along the big downhill along the Interstate, ATC built us a new section of trail through the side slope with the help of some wonderful trail building contractors that love cross-country skiing themselves! We hope you enjoy this new section of trail. Also we made a couple of changes to the Pioneer trail (orange trail). We have a new path through the trees which avoids the view of our maintenance yard right near the Pioneer Pass. We also cut a section through the trees along the road by the trail crossing to the Kilbourn Trail to avoid the trail going through the ditch and to improve the quality of the snow surface. Fern Dell Trail Pass will be closed for an unknown period of time. if you skied last year you will remember the thin ice/open water on the trail at the Pass and trail intersection. Well.....it never dried up! In fact it just keeps flowing! We have a project in to fix the trail but in the mean time, we have placed an old culvert across a portion of the Fern Dell Trail at the intersection so we can all get over the water. The ground is completely saturated at the rest of the intersection, so unless it freezes over and we get a lot of snow cover, Fern Dell Pass will have to remain closed. This only takes out that short pass, the rest of the 3 mile loop is all open.
