Latest Conditions


The Mercer area received approximately 2-3 inches of light snow on Tuesday, 2/19. MECCA Trail groomers were out early on Wednesday morning mixing the new snow with the cold base. New classical tracks were set along with renovating and combing the skate lane. Because of the cold temps, tracks set up hard and the skate surface is very firm and level. Conditions are very good to excellent.

About the Mecca Trails

There are 21 kilometers (13 miles) of groomed cross-country ski trails, tracked for classic skiers alongside a groomed skate bed.

The terrain was created by the glaciers thousands of years ago.  The forest has stands of hemlocks and pines.  There are hardwood uplands of maple and oaks, and wetlands of black spruce, cedars, and tamarack.  The trails have great views at the Little Turtle Wildlife Area.

MECCA Ski Club maintains the trails and depends on memberships, donations, and volunteers.  The club actively collaborates with the Town of Mercer, Iron County, and Wisconsin DNR.  MECCA Ski Club is a 501C3 non profit organization.
