March weather continues. SNOW moving in around lunchtime. 1-2 inches. Then a warm up for the next week. Looks like Winter might be coming to an end. Will be reporting ’til the end.
Trails are really icy & crusty. Better out of town & under cover. East of town the one way heading east is still pretty good & SNOW covered. It’s on the south side of the road. Less breakdown from the sun. North after getting through town & out of town under cover is pretty good too. Adventure sledding time.
Groomer Tracking (GTS) shows no grooming over night. Sno-Eagles have stopped grooming as the snow is frozen & crusty. Groomers need loose snow to make a difference. With that said the trails over all are staying smooth due to cold overnight temps.
Biggest complaint I have been hearing all season is about off trail riding. Folks the Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. There is NO LEGAL OFF TRAIL RIDING ANYWHERE IN VILAS COUNTY. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Get out & ride might be near the end. See the Fat Lady. Not singing but getting ready.
See ya on the Trails one last time tomorrow!
