VILAS COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAILS OPEN
Trails are in on average Fair Early Riding Condition
Trails are in in Early Riding Condition in Eagle River. What that means is all sorts of conditions that change quickly. There are areas that are poor. There is deep frost in the ground covered with ice from the rain we had earlier December. That’s what is holding what is on the trail.
Riding Friday & Saturday found conditions all over the place. Trails are squirrelly with all the ice underneath. Crusty rough hard snow along with the ice underneath makes for interesting turning in the corners. Grit mixed with snow in other areas. And areas with soft snow. Mostly on the south side ROW trails. All in all there was enough snow to lubricate. Had no hyfax heating up.
This next week will see cloudy conditions with daytime temps in the 30’s & teens at night. Doesn’t look like any SNOW.
Both lake trails, Catfish & Eagle are marked. Stay by the markers to be safe.
Short report this morning. If you are riding slow down.
Thanks to the clubs for all their hard work.
Need cold weather & SNOW. KEEP THINKING COLD & DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!
