This ski trip has been cancelled due to lack of snow.
Enjoy some great skiing at ABR (Active Backwoods Retreats) Trails) from March 1st to the 3rd. The bus leaves Friday morning at 8 am. The trails should be in great shape with lots of snow along with excellent grooming!
On Friday, we plan to ski at Nine Mile Forest near Wausau. Nine Mile Forest, which is the home of the Badger State Winter Games, has about 30 km of ski trails and 11 km of snowshoe trails. There is a nice chalet with ski rentals. If not enough snow in Wausau, we will ski at Minocqua Winter Park with 86 km of trails as well as 15 miles of snowshoe trails. They have a nice chalet serving food including homemade soups, and they have a topnotch ski shop that rents skis and snowshoes. Both ski areas have skating and striding trails for all skiing abilities.
We plan to ski both Saturday and Sunday at ABR Trails on 101 km of scenic trails that are family owned and meticulously groomed. There also are 16 km of snowshoe trails. The chalet has a ski shop, and ski and snowshoe rentals. ABR Trails has both skating and striding trails for all skiing abilities.
Cost Includes: Motor coach transportation, trail fees, and two nights' accommodations at the Quality Inn in Ironwood with swimming pool, whirlpool, free continental breakfast, and microwave and refrigerator in each room.
