Trails in Eagle River & All of Vilas County remain CLOSED
Eagle River Volunteer Fire Department is ice testing for the ICE CASTLE!

Wet packy SNOW yesterday with sleet off & on most of the day yesterday.  Totals 2-3 inches with a crust of frozen SNOW on top.  Next SNOW on Wednesday with a 70% chance. 2-4 inches with a good chance of Lake Effect on top of that.  Moving in the right direction.  Then on Thursday, Christmas Eve we enter the freezer.  High of 9 & low of 5 on the 24th. Looks to be single digits at night for a week.  Still need more SNOW.  KEEP DANCIN’!

When there is a good 6 inches of SNOW on the trails panning should start. Ground, swamps & other wet areas are frozen up pretty good. 

Eagle & Catfish lakes are building ice.  Stay off for now until the Sno-Eagles determine both are safe & marked. 

All trail inspections in Vilas County have been completed.  Now we wait. With not much new to report.

A few updates on the trails:

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.  Next year the trail will be moved slightly south permanently.

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