Groomed again last nightGrooming continues in Eagle River every night. This year with the 2nd week of Derby also falling on Martin Luther King, Jr Monday Holiday for a lot of you has brought a ton of traffic upnorth! Most riders I have seen in Eagle River in a long while. The drivers are grooming long hours over night & trails are smooth until mid afternoon when they deteriorate. The snow level is not the issue it is warming up during the day & not dropping down cold enough for the trails to freeze at night. So they are not holding up all day until the next grooming.
The cold is coming back & this should fix a lot.
All trails in Sno-Eagles Country are now open. Please read about the Manske Swamp area & 10W/13N below & Alternate 13S.
Rode into Eagle River on Saturday on Trail 10E & it was smooth & beautious on 10 & 13N. Coming home on the same trail between 6 & 7:30 pm those same trails were bump city from the high traffic.
Here is the latest National Weather Service prediction for temps:
Monday High 24 Low 16
Tuesday High 27 Low 13
Wednesday High 23 Low 13
Start a COLD DANCE!
Eagle Lake Trail & Catfish Lake Loop are marked & OPEN. Stay by the barrels. Remember not all lakes are trails.
The section of Trail 3, also called the Manske Swamp is open. Trail Boss Tom is not grooming that area. Also Trail 10W/13N across the Wisconsin River Bridge is only being groomed to the approach to the bridge. Grooming Equipment is heavy & he does not want to risk any break through. Alternate 13S, direct route to Three Lakes has water at one section. COLD DANCE please.
With the busy weekend stay on your side of the trail in the corners, coming up hills & even on the straight aways.
KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE & ADD COLD TO THAT!
See ya on the trails!
