Sno-Eagles Trails Open
Fair to Good Early Riding Condition

Groomers were out last night. Manske Swamp which is the section of Trail 3 from Trail 17/3 heading west to Trail 10/13 has been frozen and open but not groomed.  Same for the WI River Bridge, Trail 10/13.  The temps are jumping up a bit so will have more on that area tomorrow.  When we go out to ride.

Catfish Lake Loop and Eagle Lake Trails are still closed as of 7:45am.

Oneida County Trails are opening at noon today.  This means Three Lakes & Sugar Camp trails will open.  Keep in mind if you run into a barrier or see signs of trails closed do not go that way.  Lakes in many areas are not safe or open.

Looks like best chance for SNOW is Wednesday, Christmas Day and the day after, Monday.  Weather guys forecast 2 inches+ plus tomorrow.

Grooming Schedule – Should be grooming everyday this week. Weather permitting. Stay tuned!
