Antigo Area Weekend Activities
space
It promises to be a rare, quiet weekend in the northwoods.

A lack of snow has diminished winter sport opportunities, with the ski and snowmobile trails, quiet, icy and largely barren of the white stuff.

But there's still plenty to do, including the Optimist's annual Christmas tree burn on Monday, movies at the Palace, and, in just a few weekends, the L.A. arts Snow Ball.

A look ahead, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal's advertising columns, follows:

TRAILS OPEN

Winter activities are beginning to stir after a drought of snow and warm temperatures.

Zone A of the state-funded snowmobile trail systemâ€mainly the wooded northern and eastern parts of the countyâ€will open at 5 p.m. this afternoon. Expect early season riding conditions.

Also, cross-country ski trails are beginning to improve. Jack lake is packed, The Moccasin Trail at Elcho has been packed and tracked and is reportedly in good skiing condition although ongoing logging operations will limit usage of some sections in the near future.

Maranatha Ski Trail at Silver Birch Ranch, Langlade, has been tracked but is in poor condition.

The city trails, Jack Lake and Gartzke Flowage are receiving some attention but are not tracked. More snow is needed.

Kettlebowl also needs more snow, with no opening date set for the downhill runs or the cross-country ski system.

BOW CLUB

With limited outdoor opportunities, take it indoors at Antigo bow Club. It will host a free five-week youth archery course beginning Jan 21 with classes at various times on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.
