EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Trails Good to Very Good
Light SNOW at 6:28am this morning. 1-2 inches of fluffy Lake Effect SNOW. Still a little falling at 6:41am.To top off the 12 inches plus new SNOW. SNOW off & on all the way through the 10th of March. At night single digits at night all weekend. Then teens through the week. Daytime temps up & down. SNOW forecast Monday & Wednesday. Winter is back.
All in all the trails are in Very Good condition. Lots of traffic again with larger groups. Be sure to RIDE RIGHT. Hard ice under the SNOW. Snow does not have as much moisture so it’s not sticking to the ice underneath. Riding again today & will have a full report tomorrow morning.
Lots of work on the trails by the groomers. Some of the work is being done during the day so be aware & remember to pull over when you meet a groomer. The drivers will direct you around them. Remember the equipment is heavy & needs to stay on the trail. Here is grooming, panning & rolling as of this morning:
Nearly ALL trails were groomed. Only not groomed trails are short section of Trail 17N from where it intersects with Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp heading east to Trail 1 that heads to Eagle Lake. Club Trail called Uncle Kent trail that comes of of Trail 10W & heads south & runs to Hwy G taking you to Uncle Kent’s Bar.
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are still marked. Drifting deep SNOW. Very icy under the new SNOW. Surface is very hard thick ice.
