Not much change, Eagle River trails remain in Early Riding Condition with conditions at Poor to Fair. Hard frozen ground covered with an ice base in most areas. Crusty frozen snow. Lots of snirt. Choppy conditions. The ROW trails have a bit more snow but everywhere there is plenty of snirt & dirt. Especially at road crossings & on the north side of roads.  Check out will be posting some photos in about an hour.

With the conditions as they are, grooming in Eagle River has been halted until there is SNOW.

Temps have popped up to the high 20’s to mid 30’s during the day.  Mid to high teens at night.  Weather guys have pushed out SNOW to next week.

Both lake trails, Catfish & Eagle are marked by businesses on the lake. This includes the spur to Eagle Waters. Stay by the markers to be safe.  Some surface slush on Catfish.  All are SNOW covered.

Bummer of a report again this morning.  Sure wish it would SNOW & get colder during the day.
