Next SNOW forecast for Friday with totals of 1-2 inches. Daytime temps through Saturday in the 20’s & teens. Single digit below zero at night. Starting Sunday single digits above during the day until next Wednesday & below zero every night.
Grooming continued yesterday & last night. Trail Boss reports following trails groomed:
- 3N aka Manske Swamp
- 10W13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge area
- 13N to Conover connect
Riding is still sketchy. Recommend downloading the Vilas County MapIt trail app. It gives you the 3 digit emergency numbers & trail locations throughout the County. Be sure to turn on gps function on your phone to show you where you are on the trails.
Here are some important updates:
Trail 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge Trail is Closed
There is 1 logging operations going on where there is a need to use parts of the trail. Trail 13N by Deep Lake Rd. Plus utility work on 7 near Sugar Camp on the high line.
The snowbanks at driveway crossing & road crossings are very very high. Crews are still out winging road banks. With clean up continuing expect some blocked road & driveway crossings. Please stop & cross with caution.
As trails get cleaned up trail signs will be buried in deep SNOW. It will take clubs throughout Vilas County time to unbury or add post extensions to the existing signs.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. With that said the SNOW will be way deep & will have drifts. So expect dangerous conditions. Might be best to stay off.
The 2 one-way trail areas are 10E 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. Please be aware that for now signs will be buried in many locations. PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK A MAP SO YOU KNOW THE LOCATION OF THESE TRAILS.
Let’s give the grooming crew the time to clean up. Give ’em 2 thumbs up!
