The President’s weekend comes to a close. One of the busiest I have seen in a long time! 3 days off for many of you & deep SNOW in Eagle River!
Next SNOW is forecast for Wednesday with the weather guys forecasting 3-5 inches. Looks like SNOW for next weekend. But it is early & we all know the weather guys do not always get it right. So stay tuned.
It’s February & the evil sun is out longer & will be out today. The sun will crust up the SNOW a little. Cold again tonight. 5 below.
Groomers were out again to get the trails back in shape after the busy weekend. Remember they work long hours grooming so we can ride. Give them a thumbs up.
- 10E to include 9 mile
- 13N to Conover turn around
- 10/13/3 aka Manske Swamp
- 10W/7 to Sayner/St. Germain turn around
- 3/Alt13 to Three Lakes turn around
- 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge
There are still some low hanging branch on the trails. Most of the road crossings have high banks. So take it slow & please stop at the road & driveway crossings. The sun will soften up the SNOW. With the ice base underneath it can make riding squirrely. Might even dart around a little. Didn’t see any other problem areas.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels. There was wind Sunday evening so there could be some moguls. Be safe & slow down.
Been mentioning this all season:
Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails. 10E is a one-way trail from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart. The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area. Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs. Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.
Thanks for THINKING SNOW & riding in Eagle River!!! Remember mid week riding is the best!
See ya on the trails!
