February 14 2019 5:40am – 20 – High 29
Groomers are working to get the trails in shape after the big SNOW. Last night looks like Trails 10E with the exception of 9 mile, 17N & 1N were groomed.
On the trails expect to run into hanging branches. Many were ice covered & with new SNOW there will be areas that could be hard to get through. With crews out plowing roads there will still be banks at the road crossings. So take it slow & please stop at the road & driveway crossings. Banks are high & hard to see if vehicles are coming.
There is some SNOW in the forecast for later today. Temps coming up. Thursday 29. Friday 17. Saturday 22. Forecast for single digits at night maybe a 1 or 2 below. The 29 today will cause the SNOW on top of the base to get soft. With hard ice underneath can be squirrelly.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels. There was wind Sunday evening so there could be some moguls. Be safe & slow down.
Been mentioning this all season:
Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails. 10E is a one-way trail from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart. The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area. Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs. Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.
On a sledding trip today in Florence. Left Tuesday in the SNOw. Yesterday into the UP & then back to Florence. Heading home today. Report on the ride when I get home!
Thanks for THINKING SNOW!!! Are you riding? If not why?
See ya on the trails!
