March 13 2019 6:57am  – 35  – High 43 

The next few days are going to be interesting.  Cloudy this morning into late afternoon-early evening when showers forecast & continuing overnight.  Rain also Thursday.  With a 40% chance SNOW showers on Friday.  No reliable totals so stay tuned.

No grooming overnight.

SNOW is soft with the sun yesterday & warm up. Still plenty out there to ride & there are plenty riding.  Riding is still GOOD. If you are riding the municipalities have been out “winging” the roads snowbanks so there are areas where trails are filled with SNOW & some crossings blocked.  Expect water at the edge of the roads as you cross in many areas.  Slow down & be safe.

These important updates continue:

There is 1 logging operations going on where there is a need to use parts of the trails. Trail 13N by Deep Lake Rd. Plus utility work on 7 near Sugar Camp on the high line.

Even with the warm up the snowbanks at driveway crossing & road crossings are still high. Road crews are still out winging road banks.  Expect some blocked road & driveway crossings.  Please stop & cross with caution.

Some of the face of signs are snow covered.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Lakes are drifted & lots & lots of slush under the SNOW especially on Catfish Lake.  Moguls on Eagle Lake is much worse than on Catfish Lake.

The 2 one-way trail areas are 10E from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart.  The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.  Please be aware that for now signs will be buried in many locations.  PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK A MAP SO YOU KNOW THE LOCATION OF THESE TRAILS.

Trails can & will remain open until midnight March 31 snow & conditions permitting.
