Trail Report: Eagle River
Reported By: Holly Tomlanovich
Date of Report: 12/20/2014
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 6-8 plus inches
Sno-Eagles & all of Vilas County Trails are Open. Currently trails are still in Fair Condition.
6 inches plus of SNOW this past week! Off & on we are also getting Lake Effect Snow which is a bonus because it is never in the forecast! Let’s hope that Lake Superior does not freeze over. The big winds out of Northern & Western Canada blow over the Lake & pick up moisture & then drop right here in Northern Wisconsin & UP. Next best chance of SNOW is Sunday afternoon. It does appear like there will be SNOW of some kind through all of next week! Nice Christmas Present!
Groomers were out last night to smooth out the rough frozen ice & new SNOW beginning the work building of the base. When you ride gives these guys a thumbs up. They groom when most of us are asleep. Also remember, even though the groomers are really big they can not leave the trail so stop, move over & wait for them to go by.
Section of Trail 3 north of Eagle River between Trail 17 & Trail 10W/13N is closed. A new creek appeared in there & it is still wet. It is blocked with orange fencing & a sign.
So stay out.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trail are not open yet. We will target Christmas/New Year’s Week so stay tuned. As for other lakes in the County check locally. Remember not all lakes have safe trails.
Keep Doing’ the Snow Dance & THINKING COLD! Winter seems to have returned to Vilas County.
Merry Christmas & See ya on the trails real soon!
