January 11, 2022 – 7:51 am 3 below zero – High of 21 today

Cold front came through yesterday into early this morning.  Barely made it above zero yesterday.  Last night it was 17 below zero east of Eagle River & some areas in Vilas County hit 20+ below zero.  Very early this morning began to rise.  It’s is 3 below zero at 7:10am.  High of 21 today with 20’s for until Friday.

Heavy traffic on the trails all weekend.  Good base on the trails with crunchy SNOW on top.  Trails could use some new fresh SNOW. START DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!  All in all lots of conditions.  GOOD, FAIR, Icy corners.

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows no grooming overnight.  Due to the cold.

REMINDER: Catfish & Eagle lake trails were marked & are NOW OPEN.  To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Note the spur from the northside Eagle Lake boat launch that leads to Eagle Waters is NOT OPEN at this time.   Work in progress. Stay tuned.
There is a re route on 10/13/7/17 heading west.  Did stump grinding to help smooth out the area.  New SNOW has helped that area a lot. 

Construction on the Ice Castle continues on day 3 today.  The Castle is the first constructed since 2018. The Castle is set to be completed later today. Takes cold weather & clear thick ice.  2,000 blocks of ice that will be used to construct the Castle by the Eagle River Fire Department & many volunteers. Here is a photo taken by Dan Dumas of Monday’s Progress.                      

Would like trail photos so I can post to the report to let other riders see the real time conditions.  Send them to 


See ya on the trails!!
