February 5 2019 5:45am – 7 – High 16
Ice storm yesterday followed by some SNOW late yesterday around dark. SNOWING pretty hard at times but did not amount to a lot of SNOW. Maybe an inch. Cloudy this morning with SNOW late this afternoon around dinner time. Should SNOW off & on until early tomorrow morning. 1-3 inches forecast. More SNOW Wednesday during the day. Wednesday night into Thursday looks like a great chance for alot of SNOW. Stay tuned.
As for right now trails are Fair to Poor. The sleet before the ice storm brought the SNOW level down. Temps are back down again. 16 for a high today with a low of 8 tonight. Forecast for high of 25 tomorrow with that being the highest temp for the rest of the week. With the new SNOW trails will improve quickly. For now there are all sorts of types of riding out there. Lots & lots of icy. Open areas are the thinnest. Woods riding is better.
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.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.
If you are riding be careful it is very icy out there.
See ya on the trails!
