That is great to hear. Nelson lake is alway one of the first to freeze solid so hopefully the others are not far behind.

We're hoping for continued cold weather, and some fresh snow to allow us some break in time next weekend. If you see a crew of 3 ... last year's XCR 600, a new 800 XCR (black), and my lime squeeze Assault - say hi. Always good to chat with fellow HCS'ers
I will not be around next weekend but be sure to fill us all in how things go. I saw on the news last night that 2" of snow is being forecasted . It all helps at this point.

Also, let me know how you guys like the 2018 XCR. I'm considering pulling the trigger on one in blue.

It looks like by Monday evening we may get another 3-4 inches total for this area.

One of our Groomers was panning the trails yesterday and is now parked at Louies Landing for more work today, they were knocking snow off the low hanging branches first which will take some time before all the trails are ready, hopefully by Christmas.

From a Trail Captain a few moments ago:

It took the Groomer crew 5 1/2 hours yesterday to go from the CTH A Groomer garage to Louie's Landing resort, +/- 6 miles, 1000's of hanging down branches and trees blown over from the ice storm and 40-50mph winds a few days ago, they hope all will be open and good by Christmas. Round Lake, Grindstone, Lac Courte Oreilles and a few others are mostly open yet with some bays skimmed over.

Looks like plenty of snow in northern bayfield county to get out and ride. Tugging the machine up to the UP for something to do today. Things are looking up for a change, get out on the sleds!

If the weather pattern and forecast hold up through the end of the year, this could be the best xmas through New Years in along time for the area. I hope that is the case for all of the business owners up there.

Conditions are shaping up nicely. About 10" on the ground and more snow in the forecast. If the current weather trends continue, I personally feel all the lakes will be fine by Xmas. Once Round lake freezes it seems to add ice fast.
