GTS Trails app shows groomers out in the last 24 hours
Groomers in Eagle River were out tonight working hard to groom nearly the entire Eagle River Sno-Eagles trail system. This morning it is easier report what was not groomed:
- Trail 10 W from just beyond the intersection of 10W/13N
- Trail 7 that connects to the Sayner & St. Germain trail in the northern section of Sno-Eagles trails
- A section of Trail 1N from the Eagle Lake Boat Landing to where the trail leaves Town Hall Rd & heads west along Hwy 17.
- Everything else was groomed!!
Rode 10E, 10/13N the grade south of town heading north through town & all of 13N yesterday. All were in great shape & SNOW covered.
If you do riding in the cold temps will remind you again about some cold weather riding tips:
- Extra layers of clothing
- Gloves/mittens with long lasting hand warmers or try a pair of battery heated gloves. Gauntlets over handle bars good too
- Cold weather boots with layered socks. Boot warmers are good too
- Fully charged phone stored in the inside pocket of your jacket
- Heated shields are great other wise remember to breath through your nose to prevent fogging
- Stop more frequently & drink water. Cold can cause dehydration
- Tell someone where you are riding & download the MapItVilasCo app. It gps’s your location & the location of the TIN(trail identification numbers)
Please stay on the trails to keep the trails open.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked with orange reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. The lakes are marked by the businesses on the lake so stop in & thank them when you’re out riding.
TIME TO RIDE IF YOU ARE HARDY! SEE YA ON THE TRAILS!!!
