Trail Report – : Vilas County, Wisconsin – December 23, 2023

Reporter:Holly t
Trail Conditions: Closed
Snow Cover: A thin schiff of snow
Date of Report: December 23, 2023
Area Report:

12/23/2023 – 5:05 am – 34 degree – High of 41


Sno-Eagles trails remain CLOSED due to no snow.  Temps have been bouncing up & down. Currently it has been too warm to maintain much if any SNOW.  What was on the ground has melted.  With rain for Christmas looking pretty bleak for any opening in December. There is SNOW in the forecast December 27 & 28.  Inch or 2 in the forecast.  After that the temps will drop to more normal with 20’s during the day & teens at night.  THINK COLD!   START SNOW DANCIN’

Sno-Eagles trails are inspected & go to go.  The trail teams are going out off & on to be sure no tress come down.  There has been a lot of internet fiber optic lines work & the Club is checking signing as well.

There have been re routes and closures of trails. When trails are ready to open I will list the changes.

Until then let’s all first THINK MORE COLD!  Then a SNOW DANCE will be in order.  Right now there is 2 inches of SNOW on the ground with frost building in the ground.  Need the frost to be deeper & lots more SNOW.
