Early Season Riding with POOR to FAIR conditions
January 4, 2019 6:53am 25 degrees – Partly Sunny – High of 39 today.
Well we head into a warm up for the weekend which will end on Saturday night when the forecast over night is 18. In between high 30’s during the day. It is supposed to be cloudy which is good. There is SNOW forecast Monday. No firm totals yet.
At this point for the most part the hard ice base is holding in most areas. SNOW on top is thin in spots & there is snirt. Especially on the north side of trails along roads & road crossings. In town Trail 3 heading south is covered as of this morning. Right in town much is covered. The base is from thick to thin. Best riding is still north & east. Conditions are very icy so slow down. Will be riding today & will do another report later with conditions.
There are a couple of sections of trails in Sno-Eagles Country that are one way trails. 10E & 13’s in the Buckatabon Bridge/Bauers Dam area. The trails are very clearly marked as one ways. If you enter the wrong way you will see a sign that says DO NOT ENTER plus you will not be able to read the trail signs as they will be backwards if you are going the wrong way. Over the weekend saw very many riders going the wrong way. This is very dangerous.
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.
Continue DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE & THINK COLD!
See ya on the trails today!
