VILAS COUNTY TRAILS ARE OPEN
Snowmobile Trails Can Remain Open Until Midnight March 31st
Very little change in the report this morning. Trails on average are FAIR. In town trails are POOR frozen spots of SNOW & ice in the mornings. As it warms up during the day the SNOW & ice thaw & get mushy and wet especially at road crossings. Many of the road trails for the most part have no snow on them. Especially those running north & south. Moving out of town conditions improve but it is a struggle to get to them without a bit of adventure sledding. In woods trails particularly way out east, north & southwest are FAIR with even some areas of GOOD but this is getting far & few between. That would be 6 miles or more. Trailering & dropping off to ride might be good.
Partly cloudy today with high of 33 & then 20 overnight. Snow Showers tomorrow. Stay tuned for totals.
Here are some continuing areas to be aware of:
The section of the Chanticleer Inn Trail off of Trail 10E that takes riders to Eagle is mushy & wet at the entrance heading to the lake but is passable. Trail Boss is monitoring that area and will close if conditions continue.
Trail 1N logging operation continues in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. With the log piles and icy grainy conditions in that section it would be good to slow down. Minimal grooming due to the logging operation.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trails are marked with orange easy to see reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. Reminder that the Catfish Lake Trail that ran from Braywood to Lumpy’s is not open. Please do not trespass on private land.
To keep the riding season going it’s going to take everyone Doin’ the SNOW Dance & THINKING COLD!!
See ya on the trails again real soon!
