Ironwood — The Wolverine Nordic Ski Trails were open Sunday as many gathered to spend their time skiing the various trails.

Among those included Al Limberg and Barb Bradley, of Wausau, Wis. It was their first time at Wolverine this season and said that they weren’t able to get out there earlier because of the weather.

They frequent various cross country trails such as ABR and Wolverine, with Wolverine being their favorite. The reason is because of the volunteers and what the trail has to offer, saying that the grooming is always very good. “The terrain is challenging and so beautiful,” said Bradely as the two of them sat in the warming house preparing their gear.

The unusually warm weather so far this winter combined with the lack of snowfall that is common in this area has caused the ski hills to delay opening. “We don’t like it,” Bradley said, but added that they appreciate the snow that is there now.

The weather has also caused a delay in other activities that many enjoy coming to the area for, including ice fishing and snowmobiling. If the snow and weather cooperate, locals and visitors will surely be grateful to be able to enjoy the many features the area has to offer.
