Sunrise this morning at -20 with a -30 windchill.  Did the schools call off…. nope, it is only a half day and they all stayed on in our area.  I have folks going out for their first time snowmobiling today.  What a day to pick to be your first time.  Thankfully there are all sorts to spots to stop on the way to warm up.  We have another cabin of brave icefishermen, hope they brought their heater

Amanda Hixson arrived at the resort with her boyfriend Chris for a weekend of snowmobiling with friends.  I am not sure we converted her over to loving a Northwoods winter as much as she enjoys sitting by the lake in the summer, but everyone had a good time.  For the record nobody slept in Tom and Murry’s bed…. really!

They reported the trails in great shape for Hazelhurst to Eagle River.  They followed 3 groomers and had nice smooth trails the entire way with fresh snow coming down

Besides the fact that Martin Luther was a great guy we also love him because a day off school for a 3 day weekend to have fun with the family!

The Knarr family reported that the trails were alright but definitely were showing some bare spots and needed some snow.  A few bare spots did not slow them down in the least, they had a great weekend on the sleds
