EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
On average FAIR
Need new SNOW
March 1, 2022 – 7:15am 22 degrees – High today 30 – Low tonight 10
March 1st & we’re still riding! With that said trails on average are FAIR. There is GOOD riding out of town under cover. There is also POOR riding in many areas especially wide open & spots in town. The trails are now at Adventure Sledding condition. There is SNOW in the forecast for tonight into tomorrow but it doesn’t look like much. SNOW off & on through the rest of the week with the best bet for SNOW accumulation is Sunday. Stay tuned.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last night. Grooming of trails heading NORTH overnight & grooming all but a one way section of 13N way up near the Conover turn around near Bauers Dam. That would be from the Groomer Barn: 10W/13N, 17N, 3N aka Manske Swamp, Wisconsin River section of 10W/13N, 10W/7, Uncle Kent club trail off of 10W that comes out at Hwy G, 13N loop (except the one-way).
To be safe please Ride Right even in the corners & expect conditions to change quickly. Please no off trail riding. The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush with the sun is possible. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! And THINK COLD would be good too!
Sleds still in the shop so “See ya on the Trails” real soon!
