Warm temps have hit the Eagle River/Vilas County snow country. That along with the sun today has dropped the snow on the trails. Best riding is in the woods. Those trails exposed to the sun are very icy.
Last night the grooming equipment went out on all trails. Most trails were panned with cutting. This is to keep the ice base in place. Did do cutting on select trails in the woods where the snow cover was better. This cut the chop that had developed.
The log hauling continues on Trail 10/13 west of the Snowmobile Bridge. Either Friday, January 15th or Monday, January 18 hauling will begin on Mathwig Rd. The Trucks will be crossing over both Trail 10 & Trail 13. Won't be driving on either of the trails. Watch for truck hauling signs.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. Still no surface slush as of this writing. Stay by them to assure you are safe. REMEMBER THAT IF THERE ARE NO MARKERS ON A LAKE OR YOUR MAP DOES NOT SHOW A TRAIL OVER A LAKE....IT IS NOT SAFE TO RIDE ON.
Keep doing the SNOW DANCE & THINK COLD! Let's keep that sun under wraps too!
See ya on the trails!
