Trails have really improved. Lake Effect Snow yesterday & this will continue off & on all week. This with cold days & nights is terrific! Building SNOW makes for great trail conditions. Most trails are in GOOD CONDITION.
Groomers headed out to groom last night around 6pm. Saw a groomer on Trail 10E. Looked like one had headed north as well.
Ice under the SNOW makes for slippery conditions. So might want to slow down if you feel your track slipping.
Reminder that in Sno-Eagles Country there are 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. So heading out east you are on the south side of the road. Heading back into town heading west you are on the north side of the road. The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area. Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs. This can be dangerous.
EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels. Do not drift away from the barrels as it is not safe to do so. Remember not all lakes have trails so if you don’t see marker do not ride on it to be safe. These are the only 2 lakes that are marked in Sno-Eagles Country. No other lake trails.
***FOREST COUNTY TRAILS OPEN AT NOON TOMORROW.
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 10, 2019***
Winter is back! Continue DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE & THINK COLD!
See ya on the trails!
