We are waiting for more snow to come in, it is supposed to start Sunday and snow on and off all week.  I have heard many different snow total amounts and will wait to see what happens.  Either way it will be a very white Christmas in the Northwoods this year.  Time to come play in the snow.  I have guests at the resort right now skiing at Winter Park.  Conditions are not perfect but they are out.  We need more snow and sounds like Mother Nature is going to cooperate starting tomorrow


Andy at Chequamagon Adventure Company in Mincoqua has one of the newest sports in the Northwoods to try.  He is renting out Fat Bikes.  These are snow mountain bikes.  Right now they are mostly used on lakes to bike.  You can bike on roads with them and off road on to lakes.  Hopefully there will be some designated trails for them in the future.  Andy rents them out for 50 dollars a day.  Lake Minocqua would be a great place to play around with them.  The snowmobiles beat the snow down and these could be used all over the lake.  Something new to try out


Andy also rents out skis out of his shop in Minocqua.  Stop by and see what is new at the Chequamagon Adventure Company.  Andy is a great resource for places to go for an adventure with the silent sports



The Zip Line is open in the winter as well.  I included them in a blog entry a few days ago.  There is nothing like zipping through snow covered trees.  Definitely a fun thing to do this winter



Bill Bassett is a local wood worker.  I have known Bill for years.  He gets beautiful wood from loggers and turns them into bowls.  This bowl was 40 dollars and is now on my livingroom table.  A bowl like this in town would be much, much more.  Bill has a couple of bowls left and will be making more for next summer.  He sells them out of his house but you have to know how to find Bill.  Just ask me and I will direct you to Bill if you are interested.  He is an interesting local character


More of Bill’s beautiful bowls.  I think they were all 30 to 35 each
