SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER
Plenty of SNOW with Varying conditions
February 1st. Winter continues. You been riding? Temps are popping up this weekend. High of 33 today & 39 tomorrow. Lows 26 tonight & 21 tomorrow night. Please THINK COLD!! Starting Tuesday cold moving in. 17 high for Tuesday & 0 overnight. 19 on Wednesday & 8 at night. With the warm up & then the drop expect trails to ice up a bit. The cold at night will continue in the very low teens for the near future.
SNOW will be of the Lake Effect type. Yesterday morning had about an inch of fluffy stuff on my car. Start DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
Big night of grooming again. Groomer Tracking System shows most trails were groomed in the last 24 hours. So today here are the trails NOT GROOMED
- Manske Swamp aka 3N
- 17N from intersection of 1 heading east to Columbus Rd
- GrampGrahm aka 1 which is off 10E starting by Catch 22
- Atlt13 aka 3 “the grade” south to the Three Lakes turn around
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked. No reports of surface slush. Please stay by the orange reflective barrels. Riding today let you know the conditions.
Not much change & in general found trails sections especially in swamps have rough areas. Covered with plenty of snow but the bumps have set in the base & it is hard to correct.
- Manske Swamp aka 3N is rough & has a very mushy spots
- Sections on 13N beyond Hwy G has improved
- Loon Lk Rd to Bloom Rd section of 10E rough
- Section of 17N from trail 1 to Columbus Rd very rough
- 70W section from Sundstein Rd running past the Lincoln Townhall heading west to Synergy very rough sections
- 17S from Paintball field trail 7 to Sugar Camp connect.
So here’s what you need to do…..KEEP THINKING COLD can use it & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
Ride yesterday 10E was groomed & pretty good except Bloom Rd to Loon Lk Rd section. Into town plenty of snow but mushy in some areas. 70W still rough from Sundstein Rd to Synergy Salon. Then it cleared up all the way to Sportsman’s Chalet for lunch. Headed north on St. Germain trails & Sayner trails which were groomed & good. Then headed east to 10/13 through town & home. Plenty of SNOW on the trails. Also a lot of big groups riding already on Friday after lunch. Be safe & ride right. Straight aways, hills & curves.
See you on the trails!
