March 8, 2022 – 7:03am – 10 – High 37 – Low 14
There was Lake Effect Snow (LES) yesterday until just after lunch. Maybe 2 inches of SNOW. Early the SNOW was wet but by mid morning it was the feathery SNOW.
Today a real pop in temps of 37 then down to 14 tonight. Rest of the week lows 20’s & teens for highs & single digits & some below zero temps all the way until Sunday. Snow forecast of Sunday.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows the drivers were out last night grooming. Only trails not groomed were Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp & 17N, Trail 1 to Eagle Lake Boat Launch & 9 Mile Trail which is a spur off of Trail 10E(about 7-8 miles east off of Trail 10E)
As for the trails all conditions. Conditions on all trails change quickly. Was heading home from a meeting last night & saw the groomer out on Trail 10E. He was bringing up loose SNOW so it should be in good shape again. Bloom Rd to Loon Lake Rd section has thin & snirty areas on Trail 10E. Grade heading toward town is in Good shape. Through town it’s mostly covered. Street crossing are wet & sloppy. As for the trails heading north & west all are pretty Good in the woods. Fair & Poor in the wide open areas. Still some pretty icy areas so slow down.
The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush. 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!
