Watersmeet, Michigan Snowmobiling and Snowmobile Trail Condition Reports
Hi Everyone ~ Our trails have remained in good to very good condition for a very long time. With the new snows last week and even the few inches in the past couple of days, the groomers have upgraded the trail system to EXCELLENT here in Watersmeet! We have really cold weather, blowing snows that have drifted and packed the snow into the base well, and trails are in great shape! All of our guests have been having a super time here on the trails. On the Cisco Chain here, we suggest following the orange barrels going across the lakes. There has been some slush not only on our lakes here but on most lakes with the weight of the ice. Temps are remaining really cold for a little longer and then will moderate some. Starting this weekend, we have weekend and weekday openings again and super rates. Just give us a call at 906-358-4390 (or cell 715-360-6650), and we'll be happy to help you with your upcoming snowmobile get-away. We have the snow! We have the great trails! We have really nice homes for your stay! And you deserve a get away! :o) Let us know if we can help. We hope to see you soon! Carole and Denver

Hi Everyone ~ Good news to report that we received about 3" of new snow and colder temps are in the forecast. Our groomers for the U. P. Thunder Riders have been doing a fantastic job of keeping our trails in great shape. Sledders have been telling us that the Watersmeet trails are the best in the western U. P. That's awesome to hear. There's about 20" of snow and trails are hard packed. This is the latest of groomer reports: Trail 2 east of Watersmeet - Good to Excellent Trail 2 west of Watersmeet - Good to Excellent with some icy corners Trail 13 south - Good to Excellent with some icy corners Trail 3 north - Good to Excellent and expect icy corners On the Cisco Chain here, please follow the orange barrels. We have both regular and super premium gas here and are located 1/2 mile north of the Thousand Island Lake Boat Landing. We are right on Thousand Island Lake Road on the east side of the road. If you're looking for accomodations, we have four great homes with 2, 3, and 4 bedrooms with plenty of amenities. We have a special of $35 per person per night plus tax (with a minimum per home) right now. If you have a large group, we can even offer lower rates per person. Please visit our website at www.thearrowsresort.com or call 906-358-4390 or cell 715-360-6650 (text also) for more information. We hope we can help. Trails are great. Our homes are great. The area is fantastic. It's time to make plans now! Carole

Hi Everyone ~ We haven't had much in the way of change. Last weekend brought hundreds of sledders to our trails and area trails. Our trails held up well until the weather warmed up. Even though our groomers continued grooming, it didn't take many sleds to pass over the newly-groomed trails before they were rough again. They gave it their all. A six-hour trail grooming job took over ten hours because of all the sleds! But the holiday and the warm are over, and with lots of TLC by the Watersmeet U. P. Thunder Riders, our trails are back to at least very good now. I am concerned that we are going to have a little warm up again this weekend...one day up to around 34 degrees. With less traffic and colder nights, we should hang in there fine though. If you are looking for accommodations, please let us know. We have four terrific homes here on Thousand Island Lake on the Cisco Chain. We have been offering some great rates, so please let us give you a quote for your upcoming sledding get away. You can rent a big home with all kinds of amenities for $35 or less plus tax per person (with a minimum number of people). We have openings each week now, so please visit our website at www.thearrowsresort.com or call me at 906-358-4390 or cell or text at 715-360-6650. Thanks much for visiting our report. We hope you'll come up soon to enjoy the beautiful Watersmeet area. Carole

I haven't updated since nothing has changed here, but now the U. P. Thunder Riders groomers are saying our trail system in Watersmeet is excellent!!! It was time to update and get the word out there! What a fantastic time to come up and enjoy. Our really cold weather has really helped. It's now going to get out of the really cold to some easier to deal with temps. We received a half inch of snow today. We have about 20" of hard packed snow now. It is the perfect time to get out there and ride. We still have a couple homes open for this weekend, so if you're looking for a place to stay, just give us a call. We would like to help. Our number is 906-358-4390 (cell or text is 715-360-6650). We are located just four miles over the Wisconsin border in the U. P. We have some great homes to offer for your stay. Let us know if we can help. Thanks much for visiting our report. We hope your plans will include a stay here on Thousand Island Lake on the awesome Cisco Chain. Happy sledding! Carole

Hi Everyone! Happy 2015! We are so happy to report that our Watersmeet trail system is in terrific shape. The U. P. Thunder Riders of Watersmeet have our trails in very good to excellent shape...smooth and groomed daily or nightly. The heavy traffic is gone from the holiday season, and riding is awesome! We got about 3" of new snow yesterday followed by -20 degrees (actual temps). It may be cold out there, but it sure has helped to set up our trails and freeze up any wet spots that we had before. Continuing cold (not quite that cold but still cold) is predicted for the rest of the week with some snows possibly many days. It doesn't get much better than this! We have openings every week now and are renting at discount rates. We are located between Watersmeet and Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin about 3 1/2 miles to the west on Thousand Island Lake of the beautiful Cisco Chain. We are on a access trail and also have access by the lakes to the main trail. We have beautiful homes where you have plenty of amenities. We invite you to visit our website at www.thearrowsresort.com to get more information on our places here. Just give us a call at 906-358-4390, and we'll be happy to give you a quote for your stay. If you get a group together, we can offer you rates between $25 and $35 per person per night. You can have a beautiful home for hotel rates! We hope you'll give us a try soon. We'll keep the snow and the cold coming! Our groomers will keep the trails in great shape! We hope you'll be loading your sleds up soon to head our way! Thanks much for visiting our trail report and hope to see you soon. Carole

Happy New Year! We've had a little more snow since our 9" a few days ago, but we have also gotten some really cold weather. It was down to -10 and -15 degrees the past couple of nights. The groomers have been out night and day to keep up with the holiday traffic here. With everything all coming together, they are now reporting trails to be good to very good and excellent!!! How great is that? Wet spots are freezing up, but please still keep an eye out and use caution out there. Our snowmobilers here have been out there putting on lots of miles and having a great time. Reports from them are all super, too. We hope you'll be able to put a trip together very soon. Just let us know if we can help. We have openings each week now. If you can come up for a couple days or a week or more, we would love to help. Visit our website at www.thearrowsresort.com or call 906-358-4390. We'll keep the snow and cold coming. Get your sleds ready and enjoy the beautiful Watersmeet and U. P. areas. We wish you a happy and healthy 2015 and plenty of safe sledding! Carole

Hi Everyone ~ We are so happy to report that we just received another 9" or so of great snow in the past couple of days. Our groomers are out their daily, and all trails are reported in good condition. There are some wet spots that should be drying up soon with the cold that is setting in right now. The wet spots were on Trail 2 West and 13 South. Please use caution on Trail 3 south of Bond Falls where there is a wet spot in the middle of the trail. The groomers are out there daily or nightly, so please use caution also when you encounter them on the trail. They do have the right of way and are out there making our trails the best they can be for you. If you have any questions, just give me a call at 906-358-4390. Visit our website for more area information, too, at www.thearrowsresort.com. Thanks much. We hope you'll come up soon and enjoy a great stay here! Happy New Year and Safe Sledding. Carole

Our year started out great with fantastic snow. Our U. P. Thunder Riders of Watersmeet were able to get out grooming on the first day of the snowmobile season, December 1. We had good trails especially for early season. Then we had several days of thawing. What an unwelcome event! But today we have gotten about 5" of new snow so far with more predicted yet tonight and tomorrow. Our groomers were going out tonight to pan and see how things were. We are back into the 20s at the highest for the coming week with 5 to teens for nighttime temps. I will report back as soon as there's more information from the groomers. We hope to have great trails again soon! Please do not go on the area lakes yet until they are safe. Please check with the locals before venturing out there until we get more cold here. Thanks much for checking out our report. If you're looking for a great private home for your upcoming adventures to the Watersmeet area, we would like to invite you to give us a call or visit our website at www.thearrowsresort.com. We are on Thousand Island Lake of the beautiful Cisco Chain and have four great private homes. Happy Holidays and Safe and Happy Sledding! Enjoy.... Carole
