Area Report:

January 28, 2020 – 7:22am 16 degrees & cloudy

Varying conditions
      1-25-20 sledders at Cenex             

Plenty of SNOW on the the trails & cold temps overnight.  Great combination to get the trails back in shape after a very busy weekend.  It’s 16 degrees right now with a high of 24 today & 12 tonight.  Low nighttime temps for the next few days.  And no evil sun.  

The weather guys show a slight chance of SNOW flurries off & on this week.  Next change of SNOW is next Monday.  Stay tuned.

Groomer Tracking System shows nearly all trails were groomed west & north in the last 24.  Below are the trails NOT groomed over night:

  • Trails heading east including 10E, Chanticleer Inn, GrampGrahm, 9MI
  • Trail 1 from Eagle Lake boat launch to the 17N & 1 intersection 
  • Trail 1 to Columbus Rd 
  • Small section of 17N that connects to 1- did groom 17N to Manske Swamp aka 3N intersection
  • Uncle Kent trail
  • Some section of 13N heading to Bauer’s Dam turn around

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

Caution Areas

Not much change & 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. 

  • Manske Swamp has open spots
  • Sections on 13N beyond Hwy G 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. 

Did notice some breakdown of the base at road crossings.

So here’s what you need to do…..KEEP THINKING COLD can use it & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! 

See you on the trails!
