GOOD TO EXCELLENT RIDING
Trails remain in Good to Excellent condition so far even with the warm up! Right in town trails are GOOD. West GOOD to VERY GOOD. As you head north, south or east trails get better & better. VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT. Temperatures have popped up be up ’til Sunday. Weather guys are saying overcast so that will help the situation. Then SNOW moving in Sunday night into Monday. Could be a big SNOW. No totals yet. Stay tuned. Time to get out & ride!
Grooming last night included nearly the entire Sno-Eagles Trails system. A few spurs were not groomed.
- Trail 1N logging operation continues in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. Clearly marked with signs.
- Wisconsin River Trail – 10W/13N & Manske Swamp – 3N are being groomed off & on. There are rough spots but it is frozen tight. All SNOW covered. Off & on sunny today so slush will probably be present. Do not leave the trail to be safe.
CATFISH LAKE LOOP & EAGLE LAKE TRAILS ARE NOW BOTH MARKED AND OFFICIALLY OPEN. PLEASE STAY BY THE BARRELS TO BE SAFE. VERY HARD SURFACE. AGAIN WITH THE SUN SURFACE SLUSH MIGHT BE PRESENT. REMINDER THE CATFISH LAKE LOOP TO LUMPY’S IS NO LONGER A TRAIL.
As I drove in to head to the World Championship Derby this morning Trail 10E looked beautious! Drivers did a fantastic job last night. When you see the groomers give the drivers a thumbs up!
If you are riding zip on over to the “grade” to check out the 2018 Eagle River Area Fire Department ICE CASTLE!!!! Located adjacent to the downtown “grade” trail by the Historic Railroad Grade. The lights installed change colors. Ice benches as part of the Castle let you take photos of your group. Check out this link Eagle River Ice Castle to check out more photos. Darn pretty! Holding up well in the warm up.
Heat racing to day at the Derby Track! And then Friday Night Thunder tonight. Great racing, the Governor & lots of fireworks. For more information check out DerbyTrack.com
THINK COLD & Keep Dancin’!
See ya on the trails!
