Groomers headed out about 5:30pm last night & groomed:
- 10/13 through town heading south on Alt13S
- 70W/13/7 aka Paint Ball field west from behind the Dairy Queen
- 10W13N from groomer barn heading north to Conover connect
- 10/W13N portion that crosses the Wisconsin River Bridge
- All of 10W/7 to include Uncle Kent trail that comes out on Hwy G, 13N to Bauer’s/Buckatabon area. Note 3C closed for the season
- 17N to Columbus Rd
- 3N aka Manske Swamp
When you come upon a group of sleds in front of you on the trail. Passing them can get you in trouble. Last time out I saw several groups ride up to other groups. The entire group passed the group they come upon. Not a good idea. By the time the last sled passes, a sled could be coming from the other direction.
Remember as you ride & meet a groomer the equipment is NOT able to leave the trail due to it’s weight. Pull over & stop. Wait for direction from the driver. Give ’em a thumbs up. They groom so we can ride!
