Rock Lake received about 2 inches of snow overnight. Thanks to Tom for volunteering and helping get the trail groomed today. The tracks overall are in good shape. On Rock Lake loop the tracks are shallow and crumbly in places. The trail was getting a lot of use when we were finishing up. Enjoy this beautiful weather!

It was fun to ski on the four k trail late in the day. Because of the warm weather my waxless skis had great grip on the uphills and slow descent on the downhills, but skiing on the freshly groomed trails was still a joy.

Are you looking for a fun "old school" classic ski trail close to Cable? Check out the Rock Lake trail system. Our volunteer groomers (Jerome and Tom) stepped in to make sure Rock Lake was looking good and ready to go for the weekend. Come on out and enjoy your National Forest.

Excellent condition, well groomed. Plenty of hills, good temperature. This trail is quite remote, came across it by accident, a happy mistake.

Quickly skied the 2k loop. Fantastic tracks. Great glide. We braved -13 below and it was still an amazing ski. This is one of the best classic trails in Northern Wisconsin. Groomers do a wonderful job.

With the 6-7” of new snow from last night worked into the trail, Rock Lake is looking great! We got the the deck widened out and the tracks set nice and deep. With the temperatures this weekend everything should be firm for the foreseeable future. Take care if you are brave enough to take to the trails this weekend. Special thanks to our volunteer Jerome, for coming out this morning and lending a hand (and heat)!

All loops were groomed today and very nice looking tracks were reset. Huge thank you to Tom for volunteering his time and helping groom today. There are still a few places where dirt was pulled up, so I’d recommend B skis. Enjoy!

Rock Lake received about 3-4 inches of very dry, fluffy snow. All loops were groomed and tracked today. There are a handful of areas that some dirt and leaves got pulled up while grooming, and Rock Lake Loop still has a thin base. Overall, the trail is looking better and better as we keep getting snow here and there! Should be a nice week to get out and ski!

Good grooming conditions today, and with the colder temps the trail should set up nice for the weekend! The Rock Lake loop was not groomed as we just don’t have enough snow getting through the pines. There are a handful of areas that we still pulled up a little dirt. But overall the tracks looked deep and clean. Big thank you to our new volunteer groomer Tom for coming out on a cold day and helping us! Saturday looks like the best day to get out and enjoy the trail!
