SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER
Fair & Poor sections
Update – Trl 17N closed from Trl 1 intersection to Columbus Rd.
Heading south detoured to Hwy 17. Cross Hwy & take Trl 1 back to Eagle River
Rain, mist & sleet over the last 12 hours. Depending where you are in the Eagle River area. Out east more sleet, mist & fog. West side more rain, sleet & mist. Right now it is cloudy. Precip will kick in again after lunch a 30-40% chance. Followed by 80-100% of rain until tomorrow morning. When winds are going to pick up from the north causing temps to drop turning rain into SNOW. Weather Channel calling for 5-8 inches. But that total keeps changing. So stay tuned.
No grooming overnight to protect what is on the trails.
Would not recommend riding as conditions are very icy. If you are please avoid the following area:
*Wisconsin River Trail aka 10W/13N – frozen but shiny slippery ice – approaches not groomed
*Manske Swamp aka Trail3N – no recent grooming
*Loon Lk & Bloom Rds section of 10E(use City/Trig’s Trl to Bloom Rd) – not groomed
*Trail 17S from Trail 7 aka Paintball Field heading south to the Sugar Camp trails – not
Catfish & Eagle Lake Trails are NOT MARKED. So I’d wait before crossing.
Time to sit tight.. Get through this wet stuff. Wait for the temps to drop & get us back to SNOW.
Very important! THINK COLD & start DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
See you on this trails real soon!
