Very Good

Heavy traffic all weekend. Trails in Very Good shape.  Temps were in the mid 20’s during the day & teens at night all weekend.  This will continue Friday with SNOW on Friday.  Saturday the temps are forecast to drop to single digits during the day & below zero at night for the next 2 weeks.  There was a schiff of SNOW later last night. Plenty of SNOW on the trails but a SNOW DANCE to bring some fresh SNOW would be great.  The young man on the left rode along with the driver over the weekend.   Future of grooming in Eagle River!

Did not ride this weekend as we were volunteering at the Derby Track for the races.   Plan to get out today or tomorrow.  Riders I spoke to said trails in great shape.  Did soften up a bit with all the traffic.  No problems to report. 

Full grooming ALL weekend.  Saw groomer out on Trail 10E & in town when heading home last night from the Derby Track.

Do know Eagle & Catfish Lake trails still have drifts off the marked trail so please stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Remember not all lakes are safe. 

NOTE: Off of Trail 70W after entering St. Germain is a trail locals call “The Goat” trail.  It is a Club Trail that starts at TIN 287 to TIN 288 that is CLOSED.  It is clearly marked as CLOSED with fencing & signs.  Please do not ride through this area from either direction. DO NOT RIDE ON HWY 70 as this is not legal.   Right click on the photo to open a larger version.

On snowmobile designated road routes need to follow the speed limit set for the road for all vehicles.

Last, off trail riding is a big problem. Click here &  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL & Take the Snowmobilers Pledge.


See ya on the trails real soon!
