Back to winter. Light wet SNOW this morning 6 miles East of Eagle River. Looks to be Lake Effect Snow as it’s not showing up on any radar.
Temps for the upcoming week are forecast for the mid 20’s for daytime temps with the exception of Tuesday when it will pop up into 30’s. Single digits to around 10 at night. Next forecast SNOW is Sunday.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows no grooming overnight.
As for the trails all conditions. Out east of Eagle River where I live Trail 10E is crusty snow covered with thin ice layer on top. With the light SNOW it will make them very icy. Section between Bloom Rd & Loon Lake Rd that then connects to Trail 13 to town is thin & Poor. The grade section just south of town is still Good. In town all frozen, icy & few thin spots. These are the trails I’ve seen. Have to think the rest of the trails in the same shape. So if you ride please slow down. You can get in trouble real quickly.
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!
