Groomers were out last night grooming many of the trails in & around Eagle River. With the cold temps overnight the trails should helped lay a really nice trail with loose SNOW on top. Corners are icy. Best riding with most SNOW is still Northwest & east of town. It’s still Adventure Sledding. All kinds of conditions out there.
Sledding traffic picked up on Saturday. Many riders out all over.
Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp is now open. This trail is a cut across between 13N & 17N.
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.
Last week off trail riding on Catfish lake took the life of a snowmobiler. He was no where near the barrels that are placed on Catfish & Eagle by businesses on those lakes. To include the spur to Eagle Waters. This was completely avoidable. Please stay by the markers to be safe. Entire lakes are NOT safe.
ONEIDA COUNTY trails open at noon Tuesday, January 26. No word on FOREST COUNTY.
KEEP THINKING COLD & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
