Trails in Eagle River are in terrific condition! Groomers have been working steady over the last couple of days to get all groomed. Looks like all was groomed with the exception of a portion of trails 17N near town, 1N & 1S, Grampa Graham.
No problem areas to report except that there is still that thick ice base under all the new SNOW. Plus from the ice storm & then heavy SNOW there are branches hanging low along the trails.
As for the weather the weather guys got it just a bit wrong. It is 22 below zero this morning. Will reach a high of 12 today with 1 below tonight. Then those guys report above zero in high teens & lows 20’s during the day for a long time. Single or low double digit above zero at night. Perfect riding weather!
SNOW on tap for Monday night into Tuesday morning. Could be a good amount. Plus another SNOW on Thursday. Sure hope they are right! Stay tuned.
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.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.
LaBatt Blue/USA Hockey Pond Hockey Tournament on Dollar Lake this weekend. You can ride by sled. From town take “the grade” Trail 3/13Alt to 10E to Trail 1. Follow the signs.
Thanks for THINKING SNOW!!!
See ya on the trails!
