EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
Expect ALL Conditions
Icy – With new snow cover
March 13, 2022 – 7:06am – 15 degrees – High 34 – Low 14
2 inches of wet packy SNOW overnight. Warm up to 34 by mid to late afternoon. Couple more inches of SNOW moving in early morning on Monday. SNOWING until about lunchtime. Followed by temps in mid 30’s by late afternoon. By Tuesday the temps will be in the 40’s for the rest of the week. So if you plan to ride do it today & tomorrow.
Great to get some wet packy SNOW on top of the really icy & hard base. SNOW should hold as it will be overcast most of the day. Overnight low 20’s into the teens. It’s late season riding so expect all conditions with the conditions changing quickly. Plus trails will be fast (icy) everywhere.
Groomer Tracking (GTS) shows no grooming over night. Sno-Eagles have stopped grooming as even with this snow, trails are hard ice underneath. Groomers need more 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 today & maybe tomorrow!
