EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Expect ALL Conditions
March 9, 2022 – 11.33am – 22 – High 28 – Low 3 below
Late report today. Internet went down.
Trail conditions took a hit yesterday. Evil sun & mid 30’s not good combination. Today partly sunny & only getting to 28 but it will continue to take a tole. Will be single digits & below zero every night until Saturday when it will be 10. Will also be SNOW on Saturday evening. No totals. During the day starting tomorrow highs in the teens. Next week SNOW on Monday & then up go the temps. So this weekend we might hear the Fat Lady Singing. Stay tuned on that.
As for the trails out on Trail 10E the one way sections that head west back toward Eagle River really softened up & have snirt in areas. The one way that heads east away from town is still in Good shape with an ice base. In town sloppy crossings. Thin in the open areas. Heading north under cover heading toward Bauer’s is pretty good. Wide open sections are Fair to Poor. Did not head west but the trail section of Trail 70 that crosses the highway near the Eagle River Inn is on the northside where the sun hits it more & pretty sure it soft & snirty. Adventure Sledding at this time of the year.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows no grooming overnight
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. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Get out & ride might be near the end.
See ya on the Trails !
