Snow Cover: Hard base in most areas
Date of Report: January 26, 2017
Trails Fair to Poor Condition
The WI River Bridge portion of Trails 10W/13N is CLOSED. Due to high water from the dam. It is FENCED/GATED. DO NOT GO AROUND THE BARRIERS.
Extreme Danger beyond the barriers.
All trails except Manske Swamp part of Trail 3 and the WI Bridge portion of 10W/13N were groomed Tuesday night. No grooming last night. Light traffic trails out of town look pretty good & rated FAIR. The grooming on Tuesday smoothed everything out. In town and at some road crossing conditions are POOR.
The hard base is still at a little less than 6 inches.
Less than an inch of snow yesterday. Lake Snow Effect snow forecast for today. Next snow after that is Saturday. Stay tuned for totals.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trail are OPEN & safe by the orange reflective barrels. Both lake trails have surface slush.
If you are riding keep the Emergency 3 Digit Numbers in mind. If you need assistance with an emergency call 911 & give them the most recent number you saw. This helps dispatch pin point your location.
Women On Snow Weekend so it’s time to THINK COLD! And start Doin’ The Snow Dance!
See Ya On The Trails Real Soon!
