Sno-Eagles TRAILS IN
Good CONDITION with some Very Good & Fair
Icy, icy underneath
Groomers are working hard to get all in shape. Back out grooming again. Snow is laying down great and with the cold it is setting up. Some sledding traffic but nothing like last weekend.
Lake Snow over the last couple of days. Depending where you are 2-4 inches. Maybe a little more as you head to the north edge of Sno-Eagles Country.
*Trail Alternate 13S is groomed all the way to the connection with the 3 Lakes Trails. Frozen up tight. Most is Good to Very Good but there are areas of blow out and ice.
*Trail 10E is in Good to Fair condition. The sections of trail in the ditch line could use more snow to be more level. But much better than earlier in the season.
*Trail 13 heading north is Fair but all snow covered in town. Good to Very Good further north. There is some wind blow in the open areas north plus areas with the big pines have thinner snow. Seems the snow just doesn’t get through the trees.
*Trails heading west are pretty Good except Trail 70/7 up on the hill along side of Hwy 70W
*Trails 10W/13N frozen on both approaches. Choppy. But not real bad.

Eagle River has long held the distinction of SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and it’s a matter of pride that causes local clubs and businesses to work so diligently to maintain that title. Snowmobile fever becomes a way of life in our Eagle River winters, and the talk often turns to “picks”, “carbides” and performance. In fact, these snow machines seem to outnumber cars during the winter months.
Over 500 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS connect the communities of the area, including access to major county and state routes. Trails wind throughout the area’s scenic forests, but frequently pass close to service businesses which can provide you with fuel and sustenance, shelter and refreshment. If you don’t have your own snowmobile, several dealerships will be happy to provide you with equipment during your visit.
