10 Degrees at 6:30am.  High of 18 today.  About 1/2 SNOW overnight.  Between this afternoon & Tuesday night 4+ inches forecast.

Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Trail are OPEN & safe by the orange reflective barrels.

Through the weekend grooming continued & riders are reporting good riding with trails they rode groomed. Around a 5 inch hard frozen base with loose SNOW on top.  The base is icy in many areas to be aware & be careful.

Trail Boss reports that last night groomers groomed Trail 13N, 10W, 17N & 3N.

Manske Swamp area of Trail 3 and WI River Bridge area of Trail 10W/13N not groomed.  Still concern that the grooming equipment is to heavy to travel through until more freezing of those areas goes on.
