Another cold one this morning. Great for trail set up. With grooming the mushy SNOW before the temps drops the trails are now really smooth.
Some early SNOW yesterday morning that was it. None over night or this morning.
Did not ride yesterday. But was out & about with my car & the trails I could see where very smooth. Road crossings are snirty from all the road sand & where there are icy inclines. Tonight plan to ride into town for a Club meeting. Let you know in the morning how they were.
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. Do not drift away from the barrels as it is not safe to do so. Remember not all lakes have trails so if you don’t see marker do not ride on it to be safe. These are the only 2 lakes that are marked in Sno-Eagles Country. No other lake trails.
Last, there is a dusk to dawn speed limit of 55 MPH.
Continue DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE & THINK COLD!
See ya on the trails tonight!
