You are running out of time to enjoy some of your favorite winter activities in Door and Kewaunee counties.
A weekend of warmth and rain closed down the north zone of the Door County Snowmobile Trail System, the last one that was remaining on the peninsula. The Village of Sister Bay tried reviving its Teresa K. Hilander Ice Rink before the weekend rains hit, but it is also closed until further notice along with the City of Sturgeon Bay’s ice rink. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources started to tell ice anglers to remove their permanent ice shanties from the ice beginning on March 1st for those on inland waters south of Highway 64, which includes anywhere south of towns like Medford, Merrill, and Antigo. Those with permanent ice shanties on Lake Michigan and Green Bay have until Saturday to do the same. Mother Nature will not help extend the season for those who want to ice fish on a whim with forecasted high temperatures above the freezing mark for 11 of the next 15 days according to The Weather Channel.
The weekend weather closed down the activities at Kewaunee Winter Park, but they are hoping for at least one more weekend of tubing this week. Some of Kewaunee County’s snowmobile trails have been closed since January 14th while some never opened this winter.
