February 12 2019 6:00am – 16 – High 17 – Light SNOW

Here comes more SNOW! Checking weather sites the weather guys are forecasting 6-9 inches of SNOW today into tonight.  After grooming the trails will be fantastic.

Trails are in great shape.  Very few problems to report.  Might find a few sections that have a bit of chop.  If the traffic picks up with the depth of the SNOW there could be bumps.  Riding found a few areas with low level snirt.  These are the areas where the SNOW just can’t get down onto the trails in some thicker woods. Road crossing have improved.  But with the new SNOW just starting to fall road crews will be out sanding & treating the roads so the snirt at the crossings could increase.  Did also find a few corners where the ice base was exposed by blow out.  Very slippery.  So please slow down.

Heading into some great riding temps.  Today 17.  Wednesday 26. Thursday 27.  Friday 15. Forecast for single digits at night maybe a 1 or 2 below in the mix.  Great riding weather.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.  There was wind Sunday evening so there could be some moguls.  Be safe & slow down.

Been mentioning this all season:

Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails.  10E is a one-way trail 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.  Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs.  Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.  

Thanks for THINKING SNOW!!!  Are you riding?  If not why?
See ya on the trails!
