Snow & Recreation Update
1/18/2021: The Minocqua area has four inches of snow on the ground. Area lakes have 11 inches or more of solid ice. The Pointe Hotel & Suites is located in Oneida County where snowmobile trails are currently closed. Vilas County trails are open for snowmobiling as that county received a little more snowfall; contact snowmobile clubs or Chambers in Vilas County for trail condition information. Cross country skiing is considered good at Minocqua’s Winter Park, as well as fat biking, snowshoeing and skating. Most state owned cross country ski trails are open but may not be groomed. Ice fishing has been fair to good depending on the lake. Truck or car travel on lakes is highly discouraged; snowmobiles, ATV’s and UTV’s are the primary vehicles being used to access fishing spots. Minocqua’s downtown Torpy Park ice rink is open for skating.
