Trails Good 

January 29 2019 7:50am – 4 below zero – High of 0

The total of SNOW yesterday was 2 maybe 3 inches 6 miles east of Eagle River.  A little less heading west in town.  That added to the 5+- inches total last week all add up.  TRAILS ARE GOOD.  Hard ice base with SNOW on top.  Next SNOW later this afternoon.  No totals available.

Grooming continues.  Earlier grooming because of the cold temps.  Hard on the equipment when it’s cold & can be dangerous for the drivers.  Thumbs up to those drivers.

Cold is back.  Highs over the next few days:  6 below Wednesday. 2 below Thursday.  Then a balmy 11 above zero on Friday!  After that temps above zero during the day & even at night.  Looks like the best shot of Snow after today is next Monday  Stay tuned.

All in all trails are GOOD but very icy under the Snow.  Pays to slow down.  Straight away. Curves.  Everywhere.

Not much in the line of problem areas to report.  High hill section on Trail 70W.  A few spots on the north side of 10E. Road crossings. North part of 13N heading out of town is choppy. With the cold 10/13 aka Wisconsin River bridge & 3 aka Manske Swamp are frozen tight.

Worth repeating is that:

Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails.  10E is a one-way trail from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart.  The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.  Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs.  Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.  

If you are riding

  • Dress in layer
  • Tell someone where you are riding
  • Stop more often
  • Be sure you phone is charge & tuck into the inside pocket of your jacket
  • Be sure tank if full


See ya on the trails!!!
