Heat wave this morning in Eagle River. It's 2 degrees at 9:30am. 15 for a high today & below zero tonight. Lake Effect SNOW started about 8am & continues right now.
Have to tell you that I have been under rating the trails. They are GOOD to FAIR. All are covered with a hard snow surface. The Good trails have plenty of loose snow. the Fair trails have less or no loose snow.
Rode 100 miles yesterday. From Bayside across Catfish. Off at Braywood to Trail 10 heading to the grade/13 -All GOOD. Grade Very Good. To 70W which is Fair to Good. To just past Denoyers crossing highway on 17S to 7(Paint Ball Field)-Good. To 7N to 17S in the Sugar Camp Trails-Very Good to Good. Onto 15 coming out near Pitlik's-Good. Heading south toward Rhinelander-Fair with less loose snow. East toward Three Lakes on Club Trails-Fair to Good. Coming out on across the Airport to Big Stone onto Kimble Creek Trail(think that Trail 11)-Fair, Good & Very Good. To 10W toward town-Fair. Picking up Catfish Lake Loop by 12 Pines to the Bayside.
Catfish Loop safe & in good shape by the barrels. Same for Big Stone in Three Lakes.
Trail Boss Tom had the guys groom all 100 Miles of Sno-Eagles Country last night.
