Trail Report: Eagle River
Reported By: Holly Tomlanovich
Date of Report: 12/21/2014
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 6-8 inches
Area Report: Sno-Eagles & all of Vilas County Trails are Open.
Currently trails in Sno-Eagles Country are still in Fair Early Season Riding Condition.
Early Season Riding means conditions change very quickly. There may be a section with ruts left from hunting season as some trails are on Forestry Roads; with the icy conditions there can be icy spots; branches could be down from the combo snow/sleet. So reduce your speed & keep an eye out for all conditions. Be safe.
Groomers to include Trail Boss Tom, were out again last night to smooth out the rough frozen ice & new SNOW beginning the 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.
Lastly, this morning, there was a sledding fatality yesterday in Forest County. A 22 year old rider. Please keep his family in your thoughts & prayers.
Keep Doing’ the Snow Dance & THINKING COLD! Winter seems to have returned to Vilas County.
Merry Christmas & See ya on the trails real soon!
