March 10, 2022 – 7:20am – 6 below – High 19 – Low 7
The roller coaster that is weather continues. Yesterday in the low 30’s. Today High of 19. Plus a Wind Chill advisory for this morning that ended at 7am.
Trail conditions took a hit again yesterday. Evil sun & low 30’s not good combination. Typical March weather. Will be single digits & below zero every night until Sunday when it will be 18. Will also be SNOW on Saturday & Sunday evening. No totals. During the day starting tomorrow highs in the teens until Sunday. After that temps rising steadily into the 40’s. So this weekend we might hear the Fat Lady Singing.
As for the trails out on Trail 10E the one way sections that head west back toward Eagle River really softened up & have snirt in areas. The one way that heads east away from town is still in Good shape with an ice base. In town sloppy crossings even today with the high only 19. Evil sun takes a tole. Thin in the open areas. Heading north under cover heading toward Bauer’s is pretty good. Wide open sections are Fair to Poor. Did not head west but the trail section of Trail 70 that crosses the highway near the Eagle River Inn is on the northside & snirty. Adventure Sledding at this time of the year.
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows about 3/4ths of the trail groomed. Below are the trails NOT Groomed:
Trail 10E to include all the spurs (Chanticleer that leads to Eagle Lake
from the south, Granpa Grahm that takes you to Eagle Waters & 9 Mile
that is an alternate to Three Lakes.
Trail 70W from the intersection just be Honey Bear Inn to St. Germain
Trail 13S that runs along side Hwy 17S of town to the Sugar Camp
Trail 7 aka Paintball Field which is a spur off of 17S & comes out at Cty
Hwy H connecting with the Sugar Camp trails
The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Get out & ride might be near the end.
See ya on the Trails !
