Date of Report: December 24, 2020
December 24, 2020 – 8:53am – 7 degrees – High of 9
Trails in Eagle River & All of Vilas County remain CLOSED
The SNOW overnight brought about 2-3 inches of new SNOW 6 miles east of Eagle River. Bringing the total on the ground to 4-5 inches. With the SNOW there was sleet & rain bringing the totals down. It’s 7 degrees at 7:40am with a high of 9 today. COLD nights ’til next Wednesday. Next chance of SNOW is Sunday. Here are some photos take east of Eagle River.
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 other than we need more SNOW to open the trails.
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!
Eagle River Volunteer Fire Department has been checking ice depths & quality on Silver Lake. If all goes as it is there just might be an ICE CASTLE!
Let’s get a loud SNOW DANCE GOING! Can’t wait to see ya all out on the trails!
THINK SNOW & Merry Christmas!
