Varying conditions
Heavy traffic

Yep more SNOW yesterday.  Easy 8+- inches since Thursday night!  Wet packy SNOW.  Temps could be cooperating.  Has been in low 30’s for the last few days.  Today it looks like it will be in the high 20’s. And finally in the low teens at night for the next week.  Still no evil sun.  Looks to be cloudy for the entire week.  More SNOW moving in potentially next Saturday.  Even with the higher temps trails are holding good with all the deep SNOW!

Ton of traffic this weekend.  Large groups riding everywhere.  Plus the MS Ride & Women on Snow.  Groomers have had their work cut out for them.

Groomer Tracking System shows in the last 24 hours once again nearly all trails groomed. Working with only 2 pieces of equipment they are doing double time get everything groomed.  When you see a groomer gives the drivers a thumbs up. 

Here are the sections the were NOT groomed:

  • Alt 13 aka 3S from 10E/Atl 13 intersection to the Three Lakes connect
  • GranpaGraham aka 1
  • 17N from intersection of 1 to Columbus Rd
  • 13N heading north after the Wisconsin River Bridge section

Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked.  Please stay by the orange reflective barrels.

Caution Areas

Soft snow so it can be squirrelly.  So slow down or you might meet yourself coming around the corners!  P.S.  stay on your side of the trails.  Straight aways, hills & corners.

In general found trails sections especially in swamps have rough areas. Covered with plenty of snow but the bumps have set in the base & it is hard to correct. Sections on 13N beyond Hwy G very rough, Loon Lk Rd to Bloom Rd section of 10E rough, section of 17N from trail 1 to Columbus Rd rough. 70W section from Sundstein Rd running past the Lincoln Townhall heading west to Synergy rough sections.  17S from Paintball field to Sugar Camp connect.  Don’t be tempted to ride off trail.

It’s Sunday so would expect it will quiet down a bit!  Time to take a quick trip up to Bauer’s for some of Donna’s Damn Good Chicken soup for lunch.


See you on the trails!
