January 20, 2022 – 7:50am 6 below – High of 8 today

After the SNOW yesterday the temps dropped to single digits & below zero last night.  On our way home from a Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance there was some Lake Effect SNOW.  Not much maybe 1/2 inch.  Going to be cold until late next week.  With SNOW tomorrow night. 

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows a shorter grooming session last night.  Picking up the trails they didn’t catch on Tuesday night. All trails are in GOOD shape. Switch up this morning.  Here are the trails that were groomed last night.

  • Trail 10W13N heading north from the Groomer Barn located across the Hwy from the Derby Track all the way to the connect with Conover.  No grooming from Hwy G crossing to where the trail comes out on Adams Road
  • Wisconsin River bridge crossing of Trail 10W/13N
  • Trail 13N heading north to the Bauer’s Dam area which is Buckatabon Road & Lake

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & are 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.   

Trails everywhere in Vilas County are on average GOOD condition.  The new SNOW covered the areas that were showing snirt.  Wet SNOW followed by deep freeze temps with grooming in between sure made some great trails. Even the blow outs are pretty much taken care of.  No problem areas that we found anywhere. Next ride Friday or Saturday.
Sure would like trail photos so I can post to the report to let other riders see the real time conditions.  Send them to 

Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!  Never enough SNOW!

See ya on the trails!!
