2/5/2018 â€“ We received 3â€ of fresh snow over the weekend. All trails were groomed and tracked and are in great condition. The base on the trails is about 9â€ and 15â€ in the woods. I talked to some skiers while grooming and they told me that C loop was looking great. Enjoy the trails now while you can as spring is right around the corner, Iâ€™ve been noticing an increase in wildlife tracks in the woods the last week or so.

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.
