Snowmobiling

Ride. Tour. Roam. Smile.

Miles of trail to explore

Ride 330 miles of expertly groomed snowmobile trails that trace beautiful frozen rivers and travel through the hills and forests of Rusk County. The area gets consistent snowfall each winter, providing a long snowmobiling season and excellent trail conditions. Nine devoted local clubs maintain the county's snowmobile trails and host a number of events throughout the year. Trails run along historic rivers and through majestic white pine forests. Some of the most scenic portions of the trail system run through the Blue Hills north of Weyerhaeuser and Bruce in western Rusk County. Three heated warming shelters are located along Rusk County's trails to serve riders. The shelters include Franklin stoves, picnic tables and an ample supply of firewood. See current snow conditions here and keep tabs on local trail conditions here.

Cross Country Ski Trails

Blue Hills Trails report:

Spring Has Sprung - watch for freeze/thaw cycles that produce fast morning conditions after an overnight freeze. Sun exposed trails may have a fast crust until temps rise and the sun hits the trails. Try to catch the magic window between icy conditions and sun warmed sticky trails. It's time to switch to your 'B' skis - south facing hills have started developing some thin spots.

-Be sure to visit their website or Facebook page for more trail conditions.

Christie Mountain

I absolutely positively do not want to let go of this season for the following reasons: It is not half as much fun to work here when the chalet isn't full of happy. I feel like I didn't have enough time to make all of the changes I wanted to make this season. I don't want to put my skis away for the season (yes me!!!!). The 2022/2023 Season is tentatively 250 long days away.

We live in Wisconsin which pretty much guarantees us at least one Spring snow dump after Mother Nature has abolished our snow base which means I will soon have to break the hearts of dozens of super optimistic snow enthusiasts with hopes of getting out there just one more time.

Most importantly, I am going to miss seeing you all every weekend. Whether you are a member of our amazing staff or one of our fabulous customers you are hard to let go of and I hope I get the chance to work with you and for you again. Thank you to everyone who was a part of this season in one way or another.
