TRAILS FAIR – GOOD
Plenty of new SNOW
We Got SNOW in Eagle River! Looks like 5-6 inches as I look outside 6 miles east of Eagle River! With 4-5 inches in Eagle River. Still SNOWING lightly. What a nice surprise! This is one of those Ride It When We Got events. Forecast for overcast all weekend with temps in low 30’s.
Trails groomed last night are the in town trails, 10W/13N/7S, 70W/13S, 17S, 7N aka Paintball Field, 3S, parts of 10E. Keep in mind that with the SNOW totals over night there may be areas that covered back up with SNOW & do not appear groomed, Also remember that the base under the new SNOW is still icy. At road crossings be sure to stop and look both ways as snowbanks are high along side and there may be some trail crossings that are plowed shut. Be safe.
Trail 1N logging operation continues in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. With the log piles and icy grainy conditions in that section it would be good to slow down. Minimal grooming due to the logging operation.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trails are marked with orange easy to see reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. No surface slush. Reminder that the Catfish Lake Trail that ran from Braywood to Lumpy’s is not open. Please do not trespass on private land.
Holy moly! Keep Dancin!
See ya on the trails!
