All conditions
Sleet this AM

Best Riding is still North & East.  There could be deterioration with the sleet most of the day followed by SNOW after dark.  No totals available. No Evil Sun. The work done in December did pay off.   The ice base is still holding on most of the trails.  Still SNOW cover especially North & East. Trail 10/13 heading out of Eagle River is a good ride.  Snirt through town. After crossing the Wisconsin River Bridge trail section the 2 trails split.   Trail 13 heading aka the Bauers is a good choice.  Trail 17N that splits off of Trail 10/13 & head north on the east side of Hwy 45N is another choice.  A bit thin in a short section with snirt just before the Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp.  What the trails do need is fresh new SNOW. 

As for east it Trail 10E.  Heading south to split of 10E & Trail Alt 13S.  10E & heading to  Three Lakes OR Alt 13S to Three Lakes. As of late last night SNOW covered.   Sleet may change conditions.

As for west areas of snirt near town & near the connect with St. Germain.

According to the Groomer Tracking System App nearly full grooming.  Only trails not groomed overnight into this morning are 10W & 7 headed toward Sayner & the Uncle Kent trail that comes out at Hwy G north & west of Eagle River.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are open & marked & still safe.  Expect very slippery riding & some surface slush from melted SNOW.  Always stay by the orange reflective barrels to be safe. 

Last, off trail riding is a big problem.   PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL. 


See ya on the trails!
