Nearly Full Grooming Overnight
Trails really could use more SNOW and it looks like Thursday is the day! The totals keep changing. There are some models showing 5-7 inches. With the temps up at the start of the SNOW thinking it will take some time for it to stick. So I’m thinking more like 4-5 inches is a good bet. SNOW followed by very cold temps. Many days next week highs will be single digits or even below zero highs for the day. Winters back. Just in case KEEP DANCIN’!
Nightly grooming continues. Easier this morning to let you which trail where not groomed. Trail 70W to the St. Germain turn around; Trail 17S to Sugar Camp turn around. Trail 1N which is off of 17N were not groomed. Suggest buying a Sno-Eagles trail map to help with location of trails.
Right now conditions run on average Fair with some Good & Poor especially at road crossings. The one-way parts of 10E are pretty snirty. Groomer was out prepping for the SNOW coming Thursday getting the base flattened. Same conditions on 17N. 70W of town will really improve with new SNOW it is snirty & gritty, especially up on the hill across from the Wisconsin River. Alt13S to Three Lakes is in pretty good shape, some burn through in the real open areas. All in all new SNOW followed by frigid temps will bring the trails back into shape.
Been writing this all season but off trail riding continues to be a problem throughout Vilas county. What this is doing is jeopardizing trail easements & will cause trail section closures. Please once again stay on marked trails.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
ONEIDA COUNTY trails are now OPEN. Report is that all lakes are marked. Be sure to stay be the markers & do not cross an unmarked lake trail.
Three Lakes Trails club was able to get the trails in Forest County they groom open. REST OF FOREST COUNTY IS NOT OPEN
KEEP THINKING COLD & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
