VILAS COUNTY TRAILS ARE OPEN
Snowmobile Trails Can Remain Open Until Midnight March 31st
Chilly 8 degrees this morning! Winter might just be back! 39 for a high today. Yesterday fine wet SNOW fell. Heavy at times. It was not sticking at first. All in all about east of Eagle River maybe an inch remained on the ground. Next forecast SNOW is set for Monday & Tuesday according the the Weather guys. Stay tuned.
Trail on average are FAIR. In town trails are POOR. What was very mushy & water is frozen at this point this morning. So conditions are really icy. Many of the road trails for the most part have no snow on them. Especially those running north & south. Moving out of town conditions improve but it is a struggle to get to them without a bit of adventure sledding. In woods trails particularly way out east, north & southwest are FAIR with even some areas of GOOD but this is getting far & few between. Trailering & dropping off to ride might be good.
Last night the Groomer Drivers were out & groomed all of Sno-Eagles Trails in Eagle River. All set for the beginning of the weekend.
The section of the Chanticleer Inn Trail off of Trail 10E that takes riders to Eagle is mushy & wet at the entrance heading to the lake but is passable. Trail Boss is monitoring that area and will close if conditions continue.
Trail 1N logging operation continues in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. With the log piles and icy grainy conditions in that section it would be good to slow down. Minimal grooming due to the logging operation.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trails are marked with orange easy to see reflective barrels. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. Reminder that the Catfish Lake Trail that ran from Braywood to Lumpy’s is not open. Please do not trespass on private land.
To keep the riding season going it’s going to take everyone Doin’ the SNOW Dance & THINKING COLD!!
See ya on the trails again real soon!
