To go along with the changing of the colors here at Wild Eagle Lodge we also see a changing of activities in the fall. Gone are the days of lying by the beach, water skiing, or enjoying a warm day out on the water. But not to worry a whole new variety of activities and sports are just beginning to start. Bow hunting season is underway and the gun opener is just a few short weeks from us. There are a number of winter activities that Eagle River is well known for including ice fishing, skiing and snowshoeing, and of course being the Snowmobile Capitol of the World. One that you may not know about is hockey. Eagle River plays host to a number of youth hockey tournaments over the winter as teams from around the state come to play in the dome, we look forward to seeing all the teams that have stayed with us in the past and some new ones as well. One new event that has grown faster than anyone expected is the USA Pond Hockey Championship. This year this event will bring in over 200 teams from across the nation to Eagle River area and Wild Eagle Lodge. This is a great event to both participate in and be a spectator for, there are 20+ rinks cleared off a local lake and you get to see some great hockey action all weekend long. If you are taking part in the tournament or want to come see what it is all about let us know – we are filling up fast.
