Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 8-12”
Date of Report: January 13, 2023
We were back to grooming Thursday night and the crew is out again Friday night. We rode today from Energy Mart south to Eagle Lake, down to trail along 70 East of Eagle River. Trails were in nice shape and holding up well. There was a few thin spots, but not as bad as I thought it could be since we haven’t seen much new snow lately. Rode out to the Habit, Sand Lake Pub and ended at Twin Lake Pub. All the trails were Good, a few spots were fair, but not bad at all.
If we can survive this weekend and the weather on Monday, colder temps and snow is in the forecast. I will update more when we get closer. Stay tuned.
