Area Report:


February 26, 2022 – 6:51am 0 degrees – High 30 – Low tonight 12

Lots of traffic Friday afternoon into Friday night.  Trails holding with the help of clippers of SNOW & cold nighttime temps.  Evil sun was out yesterday.  At this time of the year sun is out for long periods of time & it softens up the SNOW.  As of last night all trail out of town, even the ones running along highways & even those on the northside of those highways are holding up very well.  SNOW covered.  GOOD conditions.  Under cover VERY GOOD.  Trail 10/13 the section that runs right through town is showing some minor snirt.  From the sun & heavy traffic running through town. Rating them FAIR.  All in all rate the trail on average GOOD.

Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last nightAll trails were groomed except Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp which is a short trail that connects trails 10W/13N & 17N.  Pretty sure the swamp portion is frozen hard & has been smooth.  As you head west on 3N toward 10W/13N the land portion is rough. Under the snow in this section it is a rough patch surface & is privately owned. Hopefully the landowner will allow some work to smooth that out.

To be safe please 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.

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush with the sun is possible. 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!  We’re going to make it into March!

Sleds still in the shop so “See ya on the Trails” real soon!
