What a weekend of riding & riders in Vilas County! Heavy, Heavy traffic in Eagle River & the whole County.  Trails are showing wear & there are all conditions on the trails.  Taking the middle of the road they range from Good to Fair to Poor.  What we need to improve conditions is lots of new SNOW! Base is less than 7 inches. Some areas it’s getting very snirty & is soft & even mushy in many areas.  So…START DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE if you haven’t already.  The plus right now is that temps are dropping into the low teens or single digits or even below zero at night. Flurries yesterday brought maybe 1/2 inch of fluff.

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows everything groomed except Granpa Grahm & Chanticleer to Eagle Lake which are spurs off 10E AND Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp.  Long night for the drivers. Saw one go by grooming 10E at 1am this morning.  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 

Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!  Trails Need More Fresh SNOW

See ya on the trails!
