December 30, 2021 5:16am 5 degrees – High today of 22


Some light SNOW this morning. Not enough to measure.  Base building & 12 inches of SNOW on the ground.  We’ll take it.

For the next couple of weeks temps will reach the mid 20’s during the day a few days.  For the most part highs will be in the teens or even single digits during the day.  Overnight temps be mostly single digits with many night below zero. SNOW off & on.  So…..Keep Doin’ The SNOW DANCE! 

In Sno-Eagles Country, Eagle River trails are in EARLY RIDING CONDITION. Most trails have plenty of SNOW cover.  Riding we found a few open areas that were thin but SNOW covered.  So more new SNOW would be great.  All the swamps are frozen.  That includes, Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp, Trail 10 Wisconsin River bridge area, Trail 10E from Bloom Rd crossing toward town & heading west on Trails 13/7/70 the section just after crossing Oak Lane where it goes past The Toy Shop. A few crusty, choppy frozen spots. The re route on 13/7/70 is rough too.  Otherwise, it’s Time To Ride!

Overnight the groomers groomed nearly the entire Sno-Eagles system.  Here’s what was not groomed:

Grampa Grahm Trail 1N off of 10E (east of town trail to Eagle Waters)
Spur off 10E heading to Chanticleer & entrance to Eagle Lake (east of town-along Dollar Lake Rd)
3N aka Manske Swamp (north of town)
17N – from Trail 1S intersection heading east to Phelps connect
Wisconsin River aka Trail 10 – eastside of bridge (northwest of town)

Catfish & Eagle lake trails are NOT marked.  So please stay off for now.  Note the trail from Eagle boat launch to Eagle Waters Resort currently closed                                                                  

There is a re route on 10/13/7/17 heading west.  Here’s a photo of the change.  It’s a rough ride now.  Should smooth out as we get more SNOW.  Please stay on the trail.





Perfect riding weather!  See ya all on the trails!
