Cross Country Cruisers Trail Report 1-17-19

   The trails are holding up pretty well considering the lack of new snow fall.  The riders are enjoying them.

Got out and rode some myself this week, enjoyed the ride, and appreciated all the surrounding clubs efforts to keep the trails in good to very good shape.

Yes there are some areas that are thin on snow and there is definitely some icy corners but overall some pretty nice riding.

    The Cruisers have been busy grooming their trails as well and have done a great job of pulling in the corners and trying to put snow back on the icy areas. The colder temperatures forecasted for this weekend I believe the trails will hold up to an anticipated very busy weekend.

    Trail 3 is good to very good, trail 5 is fair to good, and trails 6, 10,11,17,51 and the Bear skin are good to very good. Trail 70 in town is fair to good.

We expect a lot of traffic this weekend so as the weekend goes on trails may show the wear and tear. Please use caution in the corners, many of them have become icy and stay to the right!

   NOW LISTEN UP FOLKS, Lake Minocqua is being marked this morning. The lake trail will be marked slightly different than in the years past through the area near the Hwy 51 Bridge or down town area some may call it.

There will be some extra barrels used to mark this trail and we ask that you all STAY NEXT TO THE BARRELS AND MARKERS!!

 This has been an ongoing concern this year and we certainly appreciate the businesses and individuals that have monitored this and have helped make this Lake trail available to us all!!

PLEASE folks ride smart and stay by the markers!!

All other Lakes in the Cruisers area are marked and please stay next to the markers!

     It is going to be busy with the three day weekend for many and the World Championship Snowmobile Derby in Eagle River so please let’s all use some extra caution out there and ride safe!

Ride Right Ride Safe!
