Lake Effect SNOW over night
Trails in Eagle River & All of Vilas County CLOSED

Lake Effect SNOW over night! Maybe an inch. Weather guys say a bit more today!  A start.  Night time temps have been for the most part in the teens freezing swamps & building ice on the lakes.  Report of 4 inches of ice on Eagle Lake. 

Vilas County Forestry, Recreation & Land department trail inspections continue. Don continues his inspections everyday. Will be complete this week. Then it’s a waiting game for SNOW & conditions.  There is a Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance meeting this Wednesday & trail conditions will be discussed.

All the hunts are now finally over.  Swamps are freezing & so are the lakes.  Just need more SNOW.

Trail 13 that heads west of Eagle River has a re route in the section that comes out on Oak Lane by the Pine Gables Restaurant.  There is new construction going on so the club has done a temporary move over of the trail.  The club is working with the Vilas Forestry, Recreation and Land department to complete the permanent re route which will be in place for the 2021-2022 season.  If you are familiar with that trail rather than the 2 corners at the west end by Oak Lane it will go straight ahead.

Also the lake spur off of the Eagle Lake Trail that take you to Eagle Waters Resort is back open!!!  The own Laura Koranda & adjacent landowners worked hard to have this happen!
Let’s get a loud SNOW DANCE GOING!  Want to hear it way up here.  Can’t wait to see ya all out on the trails!
