Well it looks like the riding may be at an end in Eagle River. Snow getting sloppy. In town there is snirt & even dirt in many places. North side of Trail 10E does have snow but it’s snirty, bare & icy. South side of Trail 10E is still snow covered but it’s crystalized. Temps only dropped to high 20’s last night & are already up to 33.
Groomer Tracking (GTS) shows no grooming over night. Sno-Eagles have stopped grooming.
The Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance meets tonight in Presque Isle. There will be a vote on when to close the trails. In the meantime if you go out for one more ride PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING. Trails are on land that Clubs have to get easements for. The even goes for Federal, State & County land. We have easements of permission for it all. So please don’t jeopardize the trails.
It appears the barrels are off Catfish lake. So I am assuming they are off Eagle lake as well. Suggest not going out on either lake.
Can hear The Fat Lady practicing.
Check tomorrow for the closing date!
