Area Report:

February 9, 2022 – 6:58am – 30 – High of 31 – 10 tonight

Cloudy all day with a little SNOW mid morning. A schiff of SNOW overnight.  Just enough to make it white.  Small system today mid morning with maybe 1/2 inch. Another weak system Thursday night. The day time highs will drop into the low teens or single digits this weekend.  Below zero or single digits at night. 

As has been reported trails are all over the place.  Ranging from Good to Poor.  Conditions change quickly.  Found best riding is north & northwest under tree cover.  Icy corners.  Open field areas are thin & have burned through areas.  Sun is out longer in February & does damage.  Also found trails along road have Good riding if they run along the southside of the road.  Example: 10E has a one way section where the trail runs east on south side & is Good.  Across the road where 10E runs west back to town has lots of snirt & burn through areas.  So plan riding around this.  Off 10E heading toward Three Lakes is better than head west.

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows groomers left the Groomer Barn along Hwy 45N near the Snowmobile Derby Track last night & groomed ALL but Trail 1 that runs south to the boat launch & the Eagle Lake trail.  It takes long nights to accomplish this. Give them a thumbs up & remember to pull over to let them by.

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. No reports of surface slush.  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.


See ya on the trails!
