March 3, 2022 – 6:28am – 14 below – High 24 – Low 1
COLD one overnight. Temps will come up quickly. The day will include the evil sun. The sun caused the Ice Castle to become unstable so it is now down. Next chance of SNOW it tomorrow night. On Saturday there is a chance of sleet so you better START THINKIN’ COLD! Snow Saturday night into Sunday.
As for the trails, we are now in the Adventure Sledding time of the year. When riding there is every condition out on the trails. In town trails are soft & breaking down in spots. Heading south the trails are good in the section under tree cover. But the open areas are POOR. East trail 10E has every condition. Surprisingly the one way is pretty good. There are some spots on the north side of the trail heading into town that are very snirty. North & West same conditions. North has more undercover so it is better. Roads are pretty bare with some having some ice.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last night. Groomed North & South. Trails 10/13, 3N aka Manske Swamp, 17N, 1 to Eagle Lake & Alt 13S.
To help you out the the location of these trail pick up a paper trail map or use the GTS tracker or the MapIt Vilas County app. A link to the download either is below.
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!
See ya on the Trails!
