EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
VERY HEAVY TRAFFIC
January 30, 2022 – 7:45am – 16 degrees – High of 18 – Snow Flurries 6 miles east of Eagle River!!
Holy Moly! Heavy traffic this weekend. Many riders. Many large groups. Trails everywhere have different conditions. Areas of soft mushy SNOW & hard icy sections. East of Eagle River on 10E the one way heading away from Eagle River on south side of Hwy 70E is SNOW covered. SNOW soft but pretty deep until you get way out where wide corners have burn throughs. Heading west on 10E to town on the northside there are areas of snirt especially where the trail under tree cover. Snirt when you cross roads. Road routes everywhere burning through. Riding through Eagle River & past the cool Ice Castle there is soft mushy SNOW cover. From Hwy G crossing north of town on 10W/13N trail was wash boardy with all the traffic. Trails all the way up to the Log Cabin in downtown Conover improve from the wash board. Some corner blow out. Tons of traffic.
The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows everything groomed except Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp north of Eagle River that runs between Trails 10W/13N& 17N & a small section of Granpa Grahm aka 1S that heads to Eagle Waters. Long night for the drivers. When you see them move over to let them by. Give ’em a thumbs up!!!

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. There have been several sleds going into the water this winter. ALL were no where near a trail or the barrels.
Sure would like trail photos so I can post to the report to let other riders see the real time conditions. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! Trails Need More Fresh SNOW
See ya on the trails this afternoon!
