Random Notes

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009
  • We still have one opening available for the deer hunting opener weekend on November 6-8.  The 2 bedroom Condo #4 is the only unit available at this time for that weekend.  However, we still have some other openings for the 2nd and 3rd weekends of deer hunting available as well.  If anyone is interested in booking a unit for any of those weekends, feel free to give us a call.
  • Our lodging rates for 2010 have been set and posted to our website.
  • Water surface temps are around 45 degrees right now.  I will be trying to get out a little to see how the walleye fishing is.  Haven’t had a chance to get out much recently.
  • On a more sad note, I started taking out the docks today.  Because I am doing it by myself, I will chip away at it over the next couple of weeks.
  • We are in the process of tearing up and remodeling Cottage #9’s bathroom.  Those of you that stay in that unit will no doubt be happy to hear that.

Snowmobile Trail Report (3-11-09)

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

NOTEThe Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was March 11th, 2009.

Snow Conditions

We received around 5-6 inches of snow yesterday.  It’s supposed to stay below freezing until Saturday, so there should be plenty of snow for this weekend.

Trail Report/Grooming Schedule

All trails were flat and hard packed prior to getting the snow yesterday.  Groomers will be out over the next couple days packing the snow, so all trails should be in excellent riding condition for this upcoming weekend.

Snowmobile Trail Report (2-24-09)

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

NOTEThe Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was February 24th, 2009.

Snow Conditions

Three days of rain and warm temperatures the week of 2/9 have eroded the trail base, but trails are still rideable.  The rain has frozen to a hard base and the 2-3 inches of snow we received last week have made trails fair.

Trail Report

I’ve talked to a few riders over the past two days and they’ve all give me the same report.  The trails are smooth for the most part, but icy in spots due to the hard packed ice base.  There are very few dirt spots, and if we get some snow over the next couple of days, the trails should be ok for the weekend considering the lack of snow.

Grooming Schedule

The trails will not be groomed again until we receive more snow.

Snowmobile Trail Report (2-5-09)

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

NOTEThe Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was February 5th, 2009.

Snow Conditions

Still no new snow to report. We’re going to have to start looking to higher powers for some

help if we don’t get snow soon.

Trail Report

Riders that I’ve talked to this week have told me that the trails are smooth, but there are patches of dirt showing through on some corners and the heavily traveled areas that are out in the open.

Be aware there’s a 1 mile stretch on the Chippewa South trail where loggers have taken the trail down to dirt.

Grooming Schedule This Week

Trails were groomed on Monday and Tuesday this week.

Snowmobile Trail Report (1-22-09)

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

NOTEThe Snowmobile Trail Report is provided by our friends Jeff & Larry, owners and operators of the Anchorage Inn.  The last report was January 22nd, 2009.

Snow Conditions

We haven’t had any measurable snow since before the new year, so if you know a good snow dance, nows the time to break it out.

Trail Report

The trails are starting to get dirty looking and some of the corners are icy, but almost all of the riders I’ve talked to this week (50+) tell me the trails are still in good shape. The Triville Trail heading north out of Longville doesn’t get as much traffic as the other trails, so if you haven’t been on it, you might want to check it out.

Grooming Schedule This Week

All trails were groomed Monday and Tuesday and will be done again today and Friday. Trails should be ready to go for a busy weekend of riding. A big thanks to the Longville Snowmobile Club Groomers for all of the time they’ve donated to make the trails the best they’ve been in years.

SNOWMOBILE TRAIL CONDITIONS IN LONGVILLE

“So far, we’ve had a wonderful snowmobile season. The trails are in very good condition.

We missed out on the big storm last week, but did get between 2-3 inches of snow on Saturday. All trails were groomed early in the week, and reports are they’re in very good condition.

The trails that get the most traffic will be done a second time today and Friday, so everything should be setup for a great weekend of sledding.”

The forecast is also calling for light snow throughout the weekend, which should add a light, fresh new layer for the trails.

HAPPY TRAILS!

Snowmobile Trail Report (12-23-08)

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

SNOWMOBILE TRAIL CONDITIONS IN LONGVILLE

Well, it looks like old man winter decided to show up this winter.  Most area lakes were frozen well before we received our first snow fall.  We checked Lake Inguadona yesterday and found 12-13 inches of ice.

There’s been plenty of snowfall as well. We received 10 – 12 inches of snow on 12-14-08.  Since then, we have had two additional snow falls that dropped another 6+ inches.

Trail conditions should be good for so early in the season. All trails were groomed on Monday and Tuesday of last week except where they cross lakes.  Lakes won’t be groomed until we get safe ice.  The trails were groomed again this week, so all trails should be good to go for the long Christmas weekend.

One note of caution, the lakes are a bit rough due to drifting from the strong winds so be careful when crossing them. Trail markers were put in place on Lake Inguadona where the Lost Girl and Chippewa South trails cross the lake.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.
