January 10, 2023 – 6:50am – 26 – High 32


Temps have bounced back up to high 20’s low 30’s during the day.  20’s at night.  Cloudy for the next 3-4 days.   Snow tonight into Wednesday. Around an inch.

Trails were in great shape on Sunday. Much, much better than I thought they would be.  SNOW covered.  Did not ride yesterday but will be riding today.   Heading west to St. Germain.  Report tomorrow.

No Grooming Monday night into Tuesday early morning.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are open & marked.   Take it slow.  Hard rough & some shiny ice. Always stay by the orange reflective barrels to be safe.

Some reminders when you ride. Have a Map or Phone App. As you ride you might meet a groomer.   They are big & can’t pull over for us.  So pull over & let the driver direct you.  And oh ya give ’em a thumbs up.  They groom so we can ride!!!

Last, off trail riding is a big problem.  Clubs throughout Vilas county have had trail sections closed this season by landowners due to off trail riding & trespassing.  In Eagle River there is a re route of Trail 10/13 that heads north out of Eagle River.  The change is at the intersection with Trail 17N across highway from Best Western Derby Inn.  The landowner closed a section.  The trail is clearly marked heading around the gas company.  It comes out at the Hwy G road crossing.  Despite clearly signing & orange fencing riders are riding off trail.  If this section is closed there will be NO direct route heading north out of town.  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL.  No off trail riding is allowed.


Riding today.  Heading west!
