Snow cover and relatively mild temperatures having been making for good silent sports conditions.
Minocqua Winter Park says the numbers of skiers, snowshoers and tubers visiting the park are outpacing last year’s figures.
Director Tim Collins says that’s thanks in part to this year’s early snowfall.
“We have been open almost continuously since early November. We did close down for the opening of gun deer season, and for a couple of days in December when it rained. Other than those days, we have enjoyed a deep snow base.”
