January 24 2019 7:09am – 12 degrees – High of 16
Tuesday into Wednesday SNOW was about 3 inches east to 2 inches in town. Then in came the Lake Effect! Another couple inches east a little less in town. Another inch forecast for today. So there’s fresh SNOW & time to ride!
SNOW is white & trails are GOOD. “The grade” Trail 13/3 in town is in good shape and so are other open areas. West is much better with the new SNOW. Expect the high hill trail on 70W across from the Wisconsin River to thin out as the traffic increases. Trail 10E between Loon Lk Rd. & Bloom Lk Rd could use more SNOW. After that section 10E really is some of the best riding! So is heading north & south. Doesn’t look like any grooming overnight.
Here comes the COLD. 16 below tonight. Weather guys forecast below zero all of Friday. Below zero every night for the next week. Single digit above or below zero during the day forecast for the next week.
Here are some cold weather tips.
- Don’t ride alone
- Tell someone where you will be riding
- Dress in layers
- Stop more often & drink warm drinks
- Make sure you keep the gas tank full
- Be sure your phone is fully charged & you have a map
Worth repeating is that:
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.
See ya on the trails!
