SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER
Adventure Sledding time of the year
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS Trails) reports in the last 24 hours:
Trail 10/13 heading south from the groomer barn through town connecting to Alt 13 aka 3S to the Three Lakes connect was groomed.
Cloudy this morning & looks to be cloudy all day. High of 35. Low tonight of 21. Tomorrow high of 35 & low of 19 with scattered SNOW SHOWERS moving in. Next SNOW on Thursday. 1-3 inches in the morning & another 1 inch Thursday night.
Surprisingly there is SNOW to ride in many areas. Enough to groom through town last night & down to the Three Lakes turn around. Trails have had a crusty SNOW cover with a little loose SNOW on top. This is adventure sledding season. Meaning when you ride you are going to find every sort of condition. SNOW covered. Burn through. Icy. Mushy with even some water especially road crossing. As for road routes most are bare. Under cover sections are shiny ice. This is a time of the season that really requires that you slow down. With the conditions on the trails changing quickly you can get into real trouble when riding.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Have not ridden either lake lately but thinking there will be surface slush. Remember not all lakes are safe. No markers means probably not safe
There is a 55mph nighttime speed limit.
THINK COLD! KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!!
Thinking might ride Thursday. See ya on the trails!
