If you want to spend a weekend in Northwoods in Wisconsin this winter, perhaps snowboarding or cross-country skiing, you may not be able to if you don’t already have a place to stay.

Although the omicron variant spurs record COVID numbers in Wisconsin and some event cancellations, people don’t appear to be changing their travel plans in Wisconsin. The Minocqua area, which had a high number of visits last winter as people searched for a sanctuary closer to their homes, continues to have high occupancy rates this winter.

“It’s hard to find a weekend getaway anywhere in the Northland area at the moment,” said Krystal Westfahl, executive director of the Visitors Bureau and Let’s Minocqua Chamber of Commerce.

She added that before the pandemic, winter occupancy rates in the region were between 60% to 80%. Now they are 95% to 100%.
