December 16, 2021 9:22am – 32 degrees

Good morning,

Quite a weather ride starting yesterday into this morning.  Temps started to rise & by evening yesterday had risen to the mid 50’s.  Very foggy with the snow melt.  All followed by high winds.  Still some wind but has settled down.  Temps are now at 32 degrees & a bit of very light SNOW!  SNOW still on the ground, more than I expected but it is now frozen & crusty. Which could be a good thing.  Beginning of a hard frozen base.

Many areas are reporting trees down & some breakup of the swamps.  For that reason, when the Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance met last night in Boulder Junction the vote was NOT TO OPEN THE TRAILS IN VILAS COUNTY at this time.  The 11 clubs will continue to communicate with the Vilas County Parks & Rec Supervisor.  So  DO NOT RIDE THE TRAILS as they are NOT OPEN.  Plus with the trees down could be dangerous.  Want to help with clean up contact the Sno-Eagles Trail Boss at 715.891.2332.

Time to be patient.  Keep checking back for updates!
