January 7, 2022 – 6:18am 7 below zero – High of 12 today

With the new SNOW the trails are in FAIR TO GOOD RIDING CONDITION.  We found all SNOW covered. There are some icy corners heading west & far north. Some road crossings were partially blocked from road & driveway plowing. 10E which runs east of Eagle River along Hwy 70E was SNOW filled from road plows winging the banks.  This from no grooming Wednesday overnight.

Today I’m happy to report the Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows nearly the entire system was grooming last night.

  • Trail 17N was not groomed from Chain o’ Lakes Rd by the Cenex Gas Station north to where it crosses Hwy 45 north of Eagle River. This trail is on the east side of Hwy 45N
  • Trail 10W was not groomed from the Trail 10W/13N intersection to Croker Rd.  This section is west of the Wisconsin River Bridge section of Trail 10W/13N.  The section that turns right & heads south.  Rest of 10W was groomed

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.  Here’s a photo of the work done on January 3rd.  Did stump grinding to help smooth out the area.  New SNOW has helped that area a lot.  It will take some time to smooth out & a lot of SNOW so expect it to be very rough.

See ya on the trails!!
