We’ve got some snow.
The Moccasin Ski Trail Thursday Dec. 18: The Moccasin Ski Trail base took a big hit with the warm weather last weekend. Some of the base is still present and with the snow earlier this week the trail was packed but not dragged or tracked on Thursday, December 18, 2014. It is skiable for old classic skies, but some of the low areas now have an ice cover especially at the top of the Luge trail. The trail will be groomed when we get more snow.
Gartzke: Friday Dec. 5: A brief update from Trailmeister Mike: The trails were all packed twice so far this year. I packed them this past Tuesday and they are in pretty good condition. I was going to set track today but after listening to the weather forecast, I felt it was best to leave the inch of light snow we received the other day on the trail and not groom. We’ll see what the predicted warm weather does to the trails and decide later what to do next.

Attention All Bicyclists: New Riding Opportunity:
There is now a mile long loop for a single track bike trail just south of Antigo (N1985 Dump Rd.) This is the site of the old landfill which has been capped. This effort was made possible through collaboration between the city and the Antigo Bike & Ski Club.
The city greatly appreciates the support and vision of Josh Zalewski and all the time he spent flagging the trail and attending meetings. Brady Koss did an excellent job assisting the trail crew with placing the initial loop in the fall of 2013. Here is the work crew after some trail maintenance on Oct.11, 2014
Gartzke has an official address of W6379 Fifth Ave.
