Current Trail Conditions

Most Recent trail report Feb 07, 2018

All of the Drummond trails have new tracks today. We received about 3” of new snow in the last few days. Incorporating that into the existing base and setting new tracks made it clean and new looking. Actually the previous tracks were still fine, but the combing effect of the groomer makes it more finished. Classical skiing with waxable skis should be excellent given the single digit to teens daytime temperatures the next few days.

Landmark dates in the history of Nordic Trails in northwest Wisconsin include 1975 when the United States Cross Country Ski Team including Bill Koch — who would later go on to win a silver medal in the 1976 Olympics – came to Telemark to train, 1978 when the first World Cup cross country ski races were held on the Telemark Trails, and also that year the Worldloppet League, an affiliation of international cross country ski marathons, was formed by Tony Wise at Telemark.

After an auspicious beginning, it wasn’t long before the landscape was dotted with Nordic Trails of all sizes and descriptions, most of which continue to offer pleasant and challenging cross country skiing opportunities today.
