- The Northwood's hasn't been the winter wonderland we all know and love.
While it's no fun for winter sportsmen, tourism-focused businesses might have the most to complain about. It's not easy to fill hotel rooms in winter when the snow isn't falling.
Eagle Waters Resort in Eagle River is finding innovative ways to bring people its way.
"We decided to create this obstacle course for the holiday season, to give our guests something to do, something fun, a group fun activity out in the out
doors. Because alot of people didnt have the opportunity to go snow mobiling or cross country skiing." Said Resort owner, Laura Koranda.
Quick thinking and beautiful scenery help Eagle Waters Resort stay busy.
But it might not be the same story for other businesses.
"We don't have anymore football, so we're definitely going to want that white gold. So if everyone can go out tonight and do a snow dance that would be great for all of us."
At least with the World Championships coming back to Eagle River this week--area businesses will feel some relief from the lull.
