Gartzke tradition continues with ski breakfast Saturday, flowage's trails ready
space
A holiday tradition will continue Saturday when the Antigo Bike and Ski Club hosts its annual Breakfast at Gartzke.

The Gartzke Flowage Ski Trail will be the site of the annual event, with diners invited to ski or snowshoe into the expansive shelter for dining and fellowship.

Nick Salm will be cooking Belgium waffles beginning at 8 a.m., and will also be pouring real maple syrup made at his own sugar bush.

Participants are invited to bring some favorite toppings, sausage, fruit, and, most of all, friends and family to share.

Hot chocolate and coffee will also be served.

After the Christmas chill, the weather is expected to moderate today and Saturday, with forecast highs near the freezing point and at least some chances at sunshine. That could bring upwards of 150 to 200 diners out for the festivities.

There’s no charge, but donations toward the food and continued trail maintenance and improvements at the ski trail would be appreciated.

The Gartzke Flowage skiing and snowshoe trails includes 5.5 miles of winding, challenging loops along either side of the water, creating one of the most picturesque recreational areas in the northwoods. It is designed for all abilities, and groomed for both classic and freestyle. There is a parking area and restrooms along with the shelter that even includes a stone fireplace.

From Antigo, travel east on County Highway F F. Once past County Highway S intersection continue east on Fifth Avenue Road two more miles. The trail parking lot will be on the right.
