BIrkie Latest Grooming Reports

1.19.17 (9:00AM): CLOSURE NOTICE:  Due to the current warm temps, and with rain in the forecast, the Birkie Trail will be closing tonight at midnight (Thursday night).  Birkie Ridge trailhead (and the loop there – 6KM total) will remain open for skiing and training this weekend – it will be groomed tonight for skiing on Friday.  If the forecast holds, we hope to reopen the Birkie Trail by Monday or Tuesday of next week – stay tuned.  Thank you for your consideration in preserving the ski trail! Hoping Old Man Winter returns soon!

1.18.17 (8:20AM): Last night we groomed the skate lanes from Hatchery to the Birkie trailhead in Cable on the Birkie Skate trail.  The skiing is just great this AM – enjoy!  Reminder – the weather is looking a bit grim later this week – stay tuned for the latest trail conditions and possible closures.

 

The Flambeau Hills Cross Country Ski Trail has been packed several times.  The trail will be groomed again by this weekend.  This trail winds through a mixture of hardwoods and conifers, crosses three bridges and provides occasional glimpses of the Flambeau River.  It has a three sided shelter and picnic area off of the Pinery Grade segment of the trail.  There are “You are Here” map signs posted at most intersections and maps at the south (Hwy W) and north (Snuss Blvd, off of Hwy 70) ends of the trail.  Call ahead for conditions.  (715-332-5271 ext.101 or 111).
