Variety of Conditions

Nearing the high for today of 33.  Temps will drop to 21 overnight. Friday moving forward temps in the 20’s during the day & teens through the weekend according to the weather guys. Chance of SNOW on Sunday but totals keep changing. Yesterday it was 1-3 inches.  This morning only a trace.  Stay tuned.

The Groomer Tracking System (GTS) map shows nearly the entire Sno-Eagles Eagle River trail system was groomed over the last 24 hours.  So here are the sections NOT groomed in the last 24 hours

Loon Lk Rd to Bloom Rd section of 10E – (use City/Trig’s Trl to Bloom Rd) – no regular grooming due to conditions so expect rough trail

9Mi trail off of 10E

GranpaGrahm off trail 10E near Catch 22

17S from 17/7aka Paintball Field intersection to the Sugar Camp connect.  No regular grooming due to conditions. Very rough. Midway down icy open spot. Room to go around.

Section of 10/13 from Hwy G to Adams Rd – has water & is very mushy/muddy.  Heading north recommend using Trail 17.  Heading south toward town recommend from 13 cutting across(left) Manske Swamp aka 3.

Manske Swamp aka 3 – no regular grooming due to conditions so expect rough trail

Wisconsin River Bridge aka 10W/13N – frozen but very icy under last snow.  No regular grooming due to conditions so expect rough & potential for soft spots

17N from 1 intersection to Columbus Rd – CLOSED to traffic. Heading south detoured to Hwy 17. Cross Hwy & take Trl 1 back to Eagle River

3S aka Alt13 section from Bloom Rd to Three Lakes connect

Catfish & Eagle Lake Trails are NOT MARKED.  Good to stay off.  Sure there’s surface slush on top of the snow.

Road only about 60 miles yesterday, Wednesday. Beautiful ride with all the snow hanging on the trees.   10E to Eagle River freshly groomed & good riding until the Bloom Lk Rd to Loon Lk Rd section. Frozen slush & rough.  “Grade” Alt 13 heading to town well ridden. Thru town good riding.  North on 10/13 good until dog leg turn of “grade” section to Adams Rd.  That section has 3 bad spots. Rest of 13 up to Conover connect to 3 well ridden.  3 to 8 heading west.  Quick lunch at Burnt Bridge.  8W to Sayner/Eagle River/St. Germain 7S toward St. Germain. Good riding through there for most part. St. Germain trail 70 heading east to Eagle River trail 70 all the way back to Eagle River. Good to Fair riding.  Took City trail which uses Tamarack St to behind Dollar Tree & O’Reilly to Trig’s Shell & back on trail to Bloom Rd. Trail section groomed & in Very Good shape.  Back onto 10E & home.

You did a great but…keep THINKING COLD & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! 

See you on this trails!
