Light SNOW off & on yesterday. 1-2 inches with a little hard frozen sleet last night.  This afternoon chance of SNOW this afternoon into tonight with 1/2 inch forecast. Next SNOW looks to be this coming Tuesday.

For the next couple of weeks temps will reach the mid 20’s during the day a few days.  For the most part highs will be in the teens or even single digits during the day.  Overnight temps single digits with many night below zero. SNOW off & on.  So…..Keep Doin’ The SNOW DANCE! 

In Sno-Eagles Country, Eagle River trails are in EARLY RIDING CONDITION. Most trails have plenty of SNOW cover.  Riding we found a few open areas that were thin but SNOW covered.  So more new SNOW would be great.  All the swamps are frozen.  That includes, Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp, Trail 10 Wisconsin River bridge area, Trail 10E from Bloom Rd crossing toward town & heading west on Trails 13/7/70 the section just after crossing Oak Lane where it goes past The Toy Shop. A few crusty, choppy frozen spots.  Otherwise, it’s Time To Ride!

Catfish & Eagle lake trails were marked & are NOW OPEN.  To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Note the spur from the northside Eagle Lake boat launch the leads to Eagle Waters is NOT OPEN.   

Overnight the groomers groomed a good portion of the Sno-Eagles system focusing on the trails heading WEST & SOUTH of Eagle River.  Here’s what was not groomed:

*10E to include all the spurs off of 10E (all are east of Eagle River)

             Grampa Grahm Trail 1N off of 10E (trail to Eagle Waters)
             Spur off 10E heading to Chanticleer & entrance to Eagle Lake      
             9 Mile Trail 
*10/13N from County Hwy G crossing to Conover connect (north of Eagle River)
*3N aka Manske Swamp (north of town)
*Wisconsin River aka Trail 10 which head west from 10/13N intersection (north of Eagle River)
*17N – which begins north or Eagle River at the intersection of 10/13N & 17N (across hwy from Derby Inn)
*10E to include all the spurs off of 10E         
*1 that runs to the Eagle Lake boat launch from the north

There is a re route on 10/13/7/17 heading west.  Here’s a photo of the change.  It’s a rough ride now.  Should smooth out as we get more SNOW.  Please stay on the trail.

                                Trail 10-13 heading westk re reoute 12-2021

Perfect riding weather!  See ya all on the trails!
