Fair to Good

February 12, 2022 – 5:45am 4 below – High of 6 today – 11 below tonight

Lake Snow moved through yesterday adding about 1/2-1 inch of SNOW to the wet heavy 3 inches Thursday into yesterday morning.  Lots of moisture in the SNOW.  The grooming before the SNOW on Thursday night & more grooming last night follow by then the cold last night has moved the trails to Fair to Good. Going to be below zero at night until Tuesday.

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows groomers left the Groomer Barn along Hwy 45N near the Snowmobile Derby Track last night & groomed:

  • Trail 10E to connect with Three Lakes trails to include 9 mile & all other spurs off of Trail 10E.

  • Trail 70 to the intersection near Honey Bear Restaurant.
  • Trail 17S from Honey Bear Restaurant intersection to Sugar Camp trails connect
  • Trail 7 aka Paint Ball Field that heads west (right) off Trail 17 to Sugar Camp connect near Kathan Inn

Another long night of grooming. Riding is GOOD. In town trails could use more SNOW.  Give the groomer drivers a thumbs up & remember to pull over to let them by.

Heavy traffic near town with lots of large groups of riders.  Be sure to “Right Right” even in the corners.  Please remember to stop at road crossings & yield at driveways.  Also there is a 55 MPH speed limit at night.

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels.  DO NOT think the entire lake is safe.  Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.


See ya on the trails!
