Very Good to Excellent

Eagle River Trails groomed by the Sno-Eagles are in fantastic shape.  There has been heavy traffic all weekend.  Groomers have been out every night into early morning.  Many times there are riders coming through right after the groomers so some trails do not have time to set up. Picture on left taken last night.

No problem areas to report this morning. Reports of small section of mushy SNOW on the west side of the Wisconsin River Bridge section of Trail10W/13N. Grooming will take care of that by filling with SNOW & packing. Same rider told me Manske Swamp,Trail 3N is tight with no mush.  Rest of the trails are in great shape.  Heavy traffic.  Be aware.  RIDE RIGHT.

Still road crews continue to clearing roads & driveways so watch for snowbanks at crossings.  The high banks might make it hard to see so be sure to stop at the crossings.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are open & marked & still safe.  Ton of SNOW cover. Expect drifting. Slow down. Always stay by the orange reflective barrels to be safe.

NOTE: Off of Trail 70W after entering St. Germain is a trail locals call “The Goat” trail.  It is a Club Trail that starts at TIN 287 to TIN 288 that is CLOSED.  It is clearly marked as CLOSED with fencing & signs.  Please do not ride through this area from either direction. DO NOT RIDE ON HWY 70 as this is not legal. Right click photo to enlarge

On snowmobile designated road routes need to follow the speed limit set for the road for all vehicles.

Last, off trail riding is a big problem.  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL & Take the Snowmobilers Pledge.


Volunteering at the “Derby” this weekend.  See ya on the trails real soon!
