Date of Report: March 3, 2019
Area Report:


March 3 2019 6:56am  – 12 below  – High 6

Cold has returned.  High of 6 today 14 below tonight. Below zero at night through Thursday.  Next SNOW not until next Sunday.  Sun out today then looks to be cloudy for most of this coming week.

Lots of sled traffic this weekend.  So nightly grooming continues. All trails except Trails 1N, 1S aka Grampa Grahm, 17N, 3N aka Manske Swamp, & Uncle Kent’s were groomed.

Trails are Very Good.  With the deep SNOW no blow out in the corners but there is a lot of loose SNOW.  Slow down.  The deep SNOW has many deer laying along side the trails for cover & they are walking down the trails for easier travel.  Again slow down as they just pop up & run across the trail.

Here are other important updates:

Trail 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge Trail has reopened.  Please use caution.

There is 1 logging operations going on where there is a need to use parts of the trails. Trail 13N by Deep Lake Rd. Plus utility work on 7 near Sugar Camp on the high line.

The snowbanks at driveway crossing & road crossings are very very high. Road crews are still out winging road banks.  With this clean up expect some blocked road & driveway crossings.  Please stop & cross with caution.

Still seeing some signs buried in the deep SNOW mostly at the crossing where the snowbank are very high.  

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Lakes are drifted & lots & lots of slush under the SNOW especially on Catfish Lake.  Drifting on Eagle Lake is much worse than on Catfish Lake.

The 2 one-way trail areas are 10E from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart.  The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.  Please be aware that for now signs will be buried in many locations.  PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK A MAP SO YOU KNOW THE LOCATION OF THESE TRAILS.

See ya on the trails. Give the groomers 2 thumbs up!
