Good Condition on average

In a warm up.  So it is time to THINK COLD to get the temps down.  “Burn throughs” are at road crossing.  CLOUDY today.

In Eagle River Sno-Eagle trails minimal grooming overnight With Trail 10/13 from the groomer barn to the connect with Conover at the Wisconsin River Bridge intersection the only grooming.

The following trails have been had minimal grooming or no grooming due to potential slush & rough conditions.  Experienced riders only:

*Wisconsin River Trail aka 10W/13N
*Manske Swamp aka Trail3N
*Loon Lk & Bloom Rds section of 10E(use City/Trig’s Trl to Bloom Rd)
*Trail 17S from Trail 7 aka Paintball Field heading south to the Sugar Camp trails 

Catfish & Eagle Lake Trails are NOT MARKED.  So I’d wait before crossing 

We rode Sunday heading out around 11am heading east from Nobbe’s North on Trail 10E.  All of Trail 10E in Eagle River & Three Lake/Brule Trails were very good to excellent.  From the Trail 10E/6W connect trail were rough in spots.  Parts are groomed frozen slush areas not groomed.   Took 6 to Trail 17 connect. Trail 17 heading south saw grooming in highland areas only. Manske Swamp aka 3N was not groomed but not bad. Mostly frozen slush. Trail 13 heading toward Eagle River was good into town.  In town trails snow covered & good.  Trail 70W groomed to Lincoln Town Hall.  From there rough (frozen slush areas) until coming out by the hair salon.  Good all the way to the 70W/17S intersection.  Trail 17S is Fair until the section that runs along Hwy 17S.  First section has had some grooming.  From Trail 17S/7 intersection heading south trail is very rough. Trail 3S/Alt13 was very good all the way to the 10E turn off.  Section from Loon Lk Rd to Bloom Rd rough.  10E all the way home was good to very good.  Sure there is a downgrade as of today.

THINK COLD & SNOW!  See ya on the trails!

Have a great day!
