Cord i was gonna say hit Sait Germain (its just west of Eagle river) the only downfall is that it has some heavy tourist sled traffic. But they groom 24/7 around there! Another great place is Manitowish(sp) just north of there and south of Hurley....also great sledding and if you go west from Manitowish you hit "the flow" which is a bunch of waterfalls that are frozen during the winter. Cool area. Wish i had a video camera when a bunch of guy we were with were doing some river crossings over open water.....first it was one guy then they got braver and two guys on one sled.....then a third jumped on the back grab bars.....on the final run a fourth guy jumped on the hood of the sled!!! They made it all the way across the river untill they hit the ice damn right at the rivers edge and bucked the sled up in the air! everyone made it but the guy on the grab bar!!! he was standing in waist high cold water!!! we all had to ride back about 30min to get to the hotel (which was the closest thing anywhere) took 3 guys to pry him off the sled!! Like in the dumb and dumber movie when they rode into town on the minibike this guy was solid from the waist down!!!!! We put him in the tub and he soaked in his cloths for about an hour!!! LMAO!!!!!

Sounds like it's pretty good (actually better than usual).

I have a friend with a place on the lake heading up there now so when I talk to him later I'll ask and let you know
