EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Mixed Bag – On Average Fair
Warm up continues Trails still have ice base & are soft SNOW covered out of town in most areas. Snow has lots of moisture, so conditions are wet in town. Again out of town riding is your best bet. Expect quick changing conditions.
Conditions yesterday were a mixed bag. Trail 10 in the one way sections is snow covered from where is starts near the ERRA Sports arena east to the Cenex gas station on both sides. Heading east & west. Some areas thin. Heading onto Taylor Lk Rd east past the ERRA Sports area & Pine Ln are icy in spots. Enough icy to ride along the edge . After crossing Bloom Rd & back onto the trail section of 10 is ragged in the wide open areas. Under cover better. From the connect with 13 “the grade” into town the first section is still snow covered & Good to the first road crossing. The section along the road heading north has snow but is squirrelly soft snow. From the intersection with Trail 70W that heads west & through town mushy & wet. Very little base. Like this ’til past Trackside. From there to Hwy G soft moisture filled snow. That’s as far as we went.
- 10W/13N from the groomer barn to Conover connect
- Wisconsin River Bridge section of 10W/13N to intersection on the west side
- 13N to the Bauer’s (Buckatabon connect) to Conover connect
- 10W & 7 to Sayner/North St. Germain connect
- Uncle Kent club trail off 10W that comes out at Hwy G
- 17N to Trail 1 to Eagle Lake
Temps up & down. Another stretch of warm much like the one in January. Looks to be a weather pattern coming that should bring SNOW & dropping temps starting Wednesday night. Forecast looks like a SNOW producer. Stay tuned.
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are marked. Please stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface is very hard with moguls. With the warm up surface slush. SLOW DOWN. Remember not all lakes are safe.
Again, off trail riding is a big problem. PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL & Take the Snowmobilers Pledge.
THINK COLD!!! Keep DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!
See ya on the trails soon!
