Businesses in Door and Kewaunee counties are enjoying the snowmobile trails and ice fishing holes as much the people using them. Snowmobilers are enjoying their first extended season in a few years while anglers are pushing through the deep snow on the ice for enjoyable fishing. That is good news for restaurants staying open this winter with snowmobilers and ice fishing guides bringing in crowds behind them. Claudia Grosbeier from CJ’s Bar and Grill near Sawyer Harbor says the winter season is becoming as important as the summer.
Although not as busy as the summer, Door County sees nearly a quarter of its annual visitors during the months of November through April according to the Door County Visitors Bureau.
