Well the chances of getting to the end of the month are not looking as good as this did this past weekend. The Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance had it’s monthly meeting Wednesday night. The 11 clubs that make up the Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance have unanimously voted to close the trails on Sunday, March 24 at midnight. So if you are going to ride do it quickly.
Sunny skies have taken a toll on most trails in Eagle River. The warm days & cold nights had turned the SNOW into really crystallized icy SNOW. Frozen in the morning then soft as the day went by. Looks more like a frozen snow cone on the trails in the morning. The base is still hard ice in most areas except in town. Snirt & dirt appearing as well.
Better riding along the north border of Vilas County.
These important updates continue if you choose to ride this last weekend of the season:
Trail 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge trail is CLOSED FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON
There is 1 logging operations going on where there is a need to use parts of the trails. Trail 13N by Deep Lake Rd. Plus utility work on 7 near Sugar Camp on the high line.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Lots of slush so for the more experienced rider at this point.
The 2 one-way trail areas are 10E from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart. The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.
Well we almost made. Been a great season. Here’s to another SNOWY 2019-2020 season!
