SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER
& ALL OF VILAS COUNTY ARE NOT OPEN.
Plenty of SNOW in Eagle River & all of Vilas County! This morning it is 14 below zero with a high of 5 degrees. Thursday thru Saturday the temps will come up into the high teens low 20’s & SNOW will move in. Forecast over those days of 1-4 inches. Then temps go back into the freezer. Doesn’t look like the SNOW is going any where.
As for the trails. There still are clubs working to clear up the last of the trees & branches on trails. With the cold throughout today panning on the trails to push the air out & force snow into the wet area things should freeze up.
Trail inspections started after the end of the 9 day deer gun hunt & continue. It takes 10-11 days to get all of the 11 clubs trails inspected. This all goes on while we wait for the 10 muzzleloader season & 4 day antlerless deer seasons to end on December 15. So no opening until sometime after the deer hunts end.
Here is a Press Release from Parks & Rec Administrator Dale Mayo regarding the entire Vilas County snowmobile trails & opening
Be Patient. Won’t be long now! See ya on the trails sometime in mid-December.
