February 17 2019 4:05pm – 20 – High 20  UPDATE on trail grooming

Trails are great for this President’s weekend!  Plenty of SNOW.

No new SNOW yesterday.  Evil sun was out. Next SNOW is forecast for Wednesday with the weather guys forecasting 1-3 inches.  

Groomers groomed most of the Sno-Eagles trails. Trails groomed were:

10E to include 9 mile
13N to Conover turn around
10W/7S to Sayner/St.Germain turn around 
3S/Alt13 to Three Lakes turn around
10/13 aka Wisconsin River Bridge
17N to Phelps NEW
70W7S to St. Germain turn around NEW
7N/17S/13S to Sugar Camp turn around NEW

There are still some low hanging branch on the trails.  Most of the road crossings have high banks.  So take it slow & please stop at the road & driveway crossings. Some of the SNOW conditions are soft.  With the ice base underneath it can make riding squirrely. Might even dart around a little.  Didn’t see any other problem area.  With the holiday weekend & all the SNOW traffic is very high. Many large group so stay on your side of the trails to be safe.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.  There was wind Sunday evening so there could be some moguls.  Be safe & slow down.

Been mentioning this all season:

Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails.  10E is a one-way trail from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart.  The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.  Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs.  Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.  

Thanks for THINKING SNOW!!!  Are you riding?  If not why?

See ya on the trails!
