February 16, 2022 – 6:50m 21 degrees – High of 31 today – 0 tonight

Heading into a temperature pop up today.  Down to 0 tonight. Then back down to 10 for a high tomorrow. Temps will be bouncing up & down for the rest of the week.  The warm temps today will soften the trails up a bit.  But shouldn’t o much damage.  Weather guys forecast SNOW on Friday 1-3 inches!!

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows groomers left the Groomer Barn along Hwy 45N near the Snowmobile Derby Track last night & shows nearly a full grooming. 

Trail 13 way up in the northern section of trails heading toward Buckatabon Lake was only partially groomed.  Plus Club trail called Uncle Kent’s.  Otherwise all are groomed & waiting for you to get out & ride!

When you come upon the guys grooming first pull over & then give ’em a thumbs up!

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.

Short report as I’m riding cross country with a group of 15.  This morning we head out from Washburn in Bayfield County. Check out News and Reports below.


See ya on the trails when we get back home!

News and Reports:

15 riders on 14 sleds left Monday morning at 9:30am from the Ice Castle in Eagle River on the yearly weekday away.  This year is a 5 day trip. 

We headed west on Trail 70 to 17S to 7 aka Paint Ball Field making our way west heading to Park Falls.  Stopped for lunch at the Bear Bar at the entrance to the Lake Tom SnoFleas trails near Lac du Flambeau.  Headed from there to Minocqua & west.  Arriving in Park Falls at the Northern Light Motel for the night.  Rode a little over 100 miles.

Yesterday, Tuesday we headed north to Washburn the town in Bayfield.  A bit of a struggle as there were many detours & re routes in Ashland county.  But we arrived safe & sound in the late afternoon at the Washburn Inn overlooking the Big Lake!  Along with a great big appetite. Another day of about 100 + miles.

Today, were will ride the Washburn & Bayfield area trails.  Report tomorrow.

Thursday it’s back to Park Falls for the night.  Then home Friday morning.
