Grand Lake Stream Winter Season Underway

January 12, 2011

Snow is flying in Grand Lake Stream, and ice is growing thicker on the lakes.  For local residents and visitors, there’s a lot to do in the winter.  It’s time for ice-fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing…. and more.  Ice-fishing is open on most lakes, and will get started on West Grand Lake in February.  Ice was late this year, so use extra caution.

For DLLT, the winter is an important opportunity to conduct part of our annual timber harvest with frozen ground.  The crew from Davis Forestry Products will be starting this year’s winter harvest in the Daugherty Ridge area the week of January 17th.

New in town this year, the Grand Lake Snowmobile Club is offering hot lunches, desserts, and beverages on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm.  The clubhouse is easy to find just west of town, and accessible by snowmobile or truck.  Local residents have already been enjoying the hot food.  Click here for more resources on snowmobiling in the area.

The Pine Tree Store opens for the winter season tomorrow, January 13th.  They’ll be open Thursdays to Sundays, from 8 am to 6 pm, and will have pizza, sandwiches, beverages, plus gasoline, local advice, and almost anything else you might need.  The store is also for sale – a business opportunity and a chance for someone to make a move to Grand Lake Stream.

Canalside Cabins is open year-round for rental of housekeeping cabins right in Grand Lake Stream, and rooms are available at the Bellmard Inn in Princeton.
