GOOD TO EXCELLENT
February 24, 2022 – 7:03am 14 below – High 19 – Low tonight 1 below
Cold morning. Sun early this morning with cloudy conditions moving in around noon. This is perfect for the trails. More SNOW around dinner time. Forecast reports about 1 inch. Great day to get out & ride! With my sled down hard to get good photos of the trails. Will post some tomorrow morning.
As for the trails they are on average GOOD. EXCELLENT riding out of town the farther out you get. In town trails are FAIR. Less traffic but please to be safe Ride Right even in the corners. Please no off trail riding. The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last night. Left the groomer barn north of town heading north on Trail 10W/13N grooming to the connect with Conover. Then heading west across the Wisconsin River Bridge section of Trail 10W/13N. At the intersection of 10W/13N groomers headed west to groom all ofTrail 10W, 7. Returning on the same section.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. No reports of surface slush. 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! Sure would be great to ride into March!
Sleds still in the shop so “See ya on the Trails” real soon!
