Trails in Eagle River & All of Vilas County remain CLOSED
Not much new to report. About an inch of new SNOW east of Eagle River. 4-5 inches SNOW on the ground. Next SNOW on Wednesday with no firm totals by the weather guys. So stay tuned & please DO THE SNOW DANCE.
Most clubs have been out over the last past days panning & packing with groomers. A few clubs are running sleds in the areas that are still wet to pack with. Now we wait. With not much new to report. All need more SNOW.
Here in Eagle River Sno-Eagles Trail Boss reports swamps & wet area are basically frozen. Trail 10 aka Wisconsin Bridge area is still mushy so it may not open when the rest of the trails open. Panning will start when there is a solid 5 inches+ of SNOW throughout Sno-Eagles Country.
Eagle & Catfish lakes are building ice. Stay off for now until the Sno-Eagles determine both are safe & marked.
A few trail update reminders:
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 regularly checking ice depths & quality on Silver Lake. If all goes as it is there just might be an ICE CASTLE for 2021!
All in all we NEED MORE SNOW. So DANCE!!!
