Trails Very Good to Excellent!

February 20 2019 2:23pm – 23 – High 24 – Afternoon UPDATE

Grooming continued in Sno-Eagles Country, Eagle River last night.  Plenty of SNOW out there.  Everything groomed except 3N aka Manske Swamp, 70W to St. Germain connect, 13/17 to Sugar Camp connect & 7 aka Paintball Field.

With the great conditions it makes trail reports hard as the trails are still in Very Good to Excellent condition.  Terrific year for snowmobiling!

SNOW started early this morning lightly getting heavier through the day. Over 3 inches of new SNOW east of Eagle River right now.  Set to SNOW until around 9pm tonight.

Looks like more SNOW for next weekend too.  Some pretty big totals starting Saturday night.  5-8 inches expected.  Another 1-3 inches Sunday during the day.

Volunteers have been out clearing up more branch & tree fall on the trails over the last couple days. Most of the road crossings have very high banks.  So take it slow & please stop at the road & driveway crossings.  Work will start on digging out trail signs that have gotten buried & replacing those that have been knocked over or are missing.  Noticed some signs 10E, 70W & through town on “the grade” buried or knocked over.  Again take it slow.

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.  

Remember mid week riding is the best!  Time to ride!

See ya on the trails!
