Ideal winter for Green Bay snowmobilers

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- The harsh winter has been great for snowmobilers in the Green Bay area.

The National Weather Service says this is the deepest snow pack around Green Bay since 1982.

That not only means good business for snowmobile dealers, but also local bars and restaurants.

"I think this is probably the best year we've had," says bar owner Augie Dereen. "Over the years you get a good year and then you get 8 bad years and usually if you get a week or two of snowmobiling that's good. This year has been exceptional."

Exceptional enough to attract snowmobilers from all over.
