SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER – UPDATE
Adventure Sledding time of the year
The Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS Trails) reported in the last 24 hours that a groomer did head north from the groomer barn to the Conover connect & onto the east side approach of the Wisconsin River bridge area heading west. It was doing trail brushing & not grooming.
Sorry for the misreporting.
Cloud today with a high of 35 & low tonight of 19. Tomorrow partly cloudy witha a high of 33 & low overnight of 23. Snow flurries this AM with not measurable totals. There is SNOW forecast for Thursday. Low totals. Stay tuned.
This is the adventure sledding part of the 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.
Suggest if you are riding the woods trails where there is tree cover. South side of trails that run along roads.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Remember not all lakes are safe. No markers means probably not safe
55mph nighttime speed limit.
THINK COLD! KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!!
Thinking might ride Thursday. See ya on the trails!
