Dock day marks the start of our season. Once the docks are in the resort looks ready for guests. Mother Nature must not have gotten the memo that today was dock day. The sun is shining and the temps are decent!!! This never happens as you will see in the photos below. The last sunny dock day was 2012.
It’s that time of year for the spring triathlon’s.
On Saturday, May 12th the Journey’s Full Marathon started here at the resort. To learn more about the marathon be sure to visit https://eagleriver.org/featured/journeys-marathon/.
It was beautiful morning, sun shining and a pleasant 40 degrees, which means no bugs . The eagles didn’t disappoint us. Just after they finished singing the national anthem 2 eagles flew overhead. It was an amazing sight and perfect timing.
This Saturday is the 4th annual White Deer Triathlon in Boulder Junction. For more information please visit: https://boulderjct.org/event/4th-annual-white-deer-triathlon/. It’s a great Triathlon that includes paddle, bike and run. We are proud sponsors of this great event in Boulder Junction.
It’s hard to believe that just 2 days ago ice covered the entire lake. I took a walk tonight around 8PM along the lake shore because the spring peepers are in full chorus. Low and behold I saw 2 loons on the lake. It doesn’t take them long to find open water. Half of White Birch Lake still has ice on it, but the loons are swimming around. The picture isn’t the best because it was getting dark out.
Congratulations to Nicole Kazmierczak for choosing the correct date that Charlie went swimming. He broke through the ice around 12:30 PM on Wednesday, May 2nd. Thank you to the 90+ people who entered the contest this year. It was a long wait. Here’s the past Ice Out dates:
2010 – March 25th
2011 – April 15th
2012 – March 19th
2013 – May 6th
2014 – May 5th
2015 – April 11th
2016 – March 30th

There is still a good deal of ice that needs to melt before the fishing opener this weekend. Depending on the temps this week it will be close.
