March weather continues.  SNOW moving in around lunchtime. 1-2 inches.  Then a warm up for the next week.  Looks like Winter might be coming to an end.  Will be reporting ’til the end.

Trails are really icy & crusty.  Better out of town & under cover.  East of town the one way heading east is still pretty good & SNOW covered.  It’s on the south side of the road.  Less breakdown from the sun. North after getting through town & out of town under cover is pretty good too.  Adventure sledding time.

Groomer Tracking (GTS) shows no grooming over night.  Sno-Eagles have stopped grooming as the snow is frozen & crusty.  Groomers need loose snow to make a difference.  With that said the trails over all are staying smooth due to cold overnight temps. 

Biggest complaint I have been hearing all season is about off trail riding. Folks the Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. There is NO LEGAL OFF TRAIL RIDING ANYWHERE IN VILAS COUNTY. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels.  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 the Fat Lady.  Not singing but getting ready.

See ya on the Trails one last time tomorrow!
