TRAILS ARE GOOD TO FAIR
February 13, 2022 – 7:05m 17 below – High of 11 today – 5 below tonight
Weather guys got the overnight temps wrong. It’s 17 below zero at I write this morning. So if you are riding early be sure to dress warm. By noon it should be above zero. Looks like some Lake Effect Flurries too. Trails are in really good shape on average & the cold is keeping them that way. Plus nightly grooming.
The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows groomers left the Groomer Barn along Hwy 45N near the Snowmobile Derby Track last night & the only sections NOT groomed were both Trail’s 1N & S which run to the Eagle Lake Trail & Granpa Grahm trail which is a spur off of Trail 10E that is located by the Off The Chain Restaurant at West Carpenter Lake Rd. Trail 10E is east of Eagle River & much runs along side Hwy 70E.
Groomer drivers are doing their magic at night in the cold. When you come upon them first pull over & then give ’em a thumbs up!
Heavy traffic everywhere & lots of large groups of riders. Be sure to “Right Right” even in the corners. Please remember to stop at road crossings & yield at driveways. Also there is a 55 MPH speed limit at night. If you are going to Pond Hockey. Taking a snowmobile might be a good bet as Chanticleer Inn trail runs right by it. Take 10/13 south through town to the 10E connect. 10E out about 1 1/2 miles. Left onto Chanticleer Inn trail.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
See ya on the trails!
