Area Report: Lots of snow here now, so we are set for snow until at least late February if it gets really warm or well into March with good weather. The Echo Valley gravel pit at The Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race site is now plowed and will be for the rest of the season. Great to park and start a run. The kids/rec loop is still being packed and will be until at least the beginning of March. We will not continue packing the rest of the race loop but it may be being run by other snowmobilers. We have well over a foot and a half of base if not more. Usually, trails are packed down by other users south of Butterfield Parking Lot on Star Route. There is well over a foot base now.
