SNOWMOBILE TRAILS IN EAGLE RIVER
Good – Some ice under looser SNOW
Heavy traffic over the weekend
President’s Day brings a pop up in temps. High of 32 today with a 15 tonight. SNOW moving in this afternoon into tonight. Forecast totals of 1-3 inches of SNOW. After SNOW moves through temps will drop down into the teens during the day until Friday. Below zero or near below zero at night until Friday.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS Trails) reports shows almost all trails were groomed in the last 24 hours. Here are the small sections not groomed in the last 24 hours.
- GrampGrahm trail aka 1 – which is off of 10E near Catch 22 taking you to road trail to Eagle Water Resort
- 17S from Paint Ball Field trail 7 to the Sugar Camp connect
ALL OTHER TRAILS WERE GROOMED
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked. Can’t confirm myself but no reports of surface slush. Eagle Lake a little chop but nothing bad. Icy with blow off of snow in some sections. Please slow down.
With the heavy traffic there are areas that are rough. Found under the SNOW cover is ice so it can be squirrelly. Sled can dart around. Both in the front & back. All in all found trails in GOOD shape. Traffic today should not be as heavy but please stay on the right not only in the corners but on straight aways & hills.
Looks like SNOW today but….KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!!
See you on the trails!
