 All Conditions On The Trails – Late Season Riding
GTS Trails app shows groomers out in the last 24 hours

While conditions continue to downgrade the groomers were out last night.  Nearly full grooming.  10E & it’s spurs were not groomed & the section of 70W from the Honey Bear heading west was not groomed.

Best way to learn the trails is to buy a Sno-Eagles trail map. It also had the entire Vilas county trails on the backside.  Plus download the GTS trails app  It is available at the App Store.

We have entered the “Adventure Sledding” time of the season.  When riding expect all sorts of conditions.  Next SNOW is Sunday with an 80% chance. 2-4 inches forecast.   If ya THINK COLD maybe it all will stick.  START DANCIN

Rode again yesterday heading out from my house on 10E near MJ’s Wayside(about 6 miles east).  It was GOOD all the way to the connection with the Three Lakes Trails & beyond. A few small burn throughs & some snirt in open areas.  This was around noon.  Trail 6 has National Forest logging & much of the trail was plowed from before the season started so much of it is very bad.  Three Lakes & Phelps are doing the best with a not good situation.  In Phelps rode 17S.  It had all conditions.  VERY GOOD, GOOD, FAIR & a little POOR at road crossings.  It runs to Shangri La Road & connects with Eagle River trails.  From there road riding with not a lot of cover.  Into the woods for short run.  POOR in that section. Out on Adams & headed north & west on 17 to Hwy 45N crossing.  FAIR & POOR.  After the crossing at the 17/3N intersection 17 is in POOR condition all the way to next Hwy 45N crossing.  There are areas of waters across the entire trail. After the crossing snow covered & FAIR to the 10/13 connect near Best Western.  Except the low spot by Kickback Grill.  Water there.  Through town very thin & FAIR.  Atl13/3S is VERY GOOD.  10E from Loon Lk Rd to Bloom Rd POOR.  Little snow on roads to where the trails starts at the Sports Arena.  From there home SNOW covered with a few exceptions & FAIR. 79 mile ride.

Please stay on the trails.

Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels.  Deep surface slush on both lakes.

Ride it while we got it.
