January 5, 2022 – 7:03am 20 degrees – Snow Showers

Snow on the ground at 6:40am was about 3 maybe 4 inches of wet packy snow 6 miles east of Eagle River.  The Winter Snow Watch ends at 6pm tonight.  Still forecasting 5-8 total by evening.  Stay tuned. Keep Dancin’

Trails are in Fair Early Riding condition & were snow covered before this latest snow.  This snow should move from Early Riding to Fair to Good riding.  See how it pans outs.

We rode our sleds into Eagle River last night & met one of the groomers preparing the trails for the new snow.  10E was Very Good.  The other groomer was also out. Here are the trails that were groomed in Eagle River by the Sno-Eagles last night

Trail 10/13 through Eagle River in both directions.

Trail 10E that connects with Three Lakes.  To include 9 mile trail that is an alternate trail to Three Lakes.  No Grampa Grahm grooming

Trail 70/17/7 heading west of Eagle River was entirely groomed. 70 connects to St. Germain.  17/7 split heading south.  17 connects with Sugar Camp. 7 splits & heads west toward Sugar Camp Kathan Inn area.  7 is aka Paintball Field

Trail 10/13 heading north of Eagle River groomed through town from the groomer barn all the way to the Conover connect which is on the train on “the grade”.

From there Trail 10W across Wisconsin River bridge.  Then north to the trails that lead to Bauer’s Dam & Conover trails.

REMINDER: Catfish & Eagle lake trails were marked & are NOW OPEN.  To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Note the spur from the northside Eagle Lake boat launch that leads to Eagle Waters is NOT OPEN at this time.   Work in progress. Stay tuned.

There is a re route on 10/13/7/17 heading west.  Here’s a photo of the work done on January 3rd.  Did stump grinding to help smooth out the area.  New Snow will help a lot.

Have trail photos? Please send to me.  Would love to post them.  Send to or text to 715.617.4708.                              

See ya on the trails!!
