February 28, 2022 – 6:50am 14 degrees – High today 28 – Low tonight 15
Last day of February & trails still open. Heavy traffic again this past weekend & evil sun have brought the trail conditions to FAIR to GOOD in the woods areas & out of town. In Eagle River & in open areas trails are FAIR at best with POOR areas as well. There will be SNOW off & on mainly this morning & early afternoon as a weak system is coming through. No totals available.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomers back out grooming last night. Another long night of grooming for the drivers. Only trail not groomed was a the one Trail 13N way up in the northern section of the trail system. It is near Bucatabon Lake & Bauer’s Dam area. Where Eagle River connects with the Conover Trails
To be safe please Ride Right even in the corners & expect conditions to change quickly. 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! And THINK COLD would be good too! We’re going to make it into March!
Sleds still in the shop so “See ya on the Trails” real soon!
