EAGLE RIVER TRAILS
New wet & packy SNOW overnight. Still SNOWING this morning. At 5:16am there was about 3 inches new SNOW east of Eagle River. SNOW will continue throughout the day. Thinking maybe 5 inches will be the total.
Trail yesterday were still great in the woods. 10E heading to Eagle River which is a one way on the north side of the woods had many burn throughs’. Still enough icy snow along Taylor Lake Rd & Pine Ln to Bloom Rd. Getting thin on 10E on the trail after crossing Bloom Rd. Back in the woods still snow cover to Loon Lake Rd. Alt 13S and 10W/13N both snow covered. Both directions. Woods riding was & is the best with much more snow and trails are GOOD. Trails along roads and crossings and wide open areas are thin, soft & sloppy. The new snow will fix this.
Time to ride right now. It’s March & temps rise to the 30’s during the day. Going down into the low 20’s & teens at night which is holding the snow.
Groom will resume tonight.
With the number of accidents & fatalities this season remind you:
When you come upon a group of sleds in front of you on the trail. Passing them can get you in trouble. Have been seeing this all winter. When an entire group passes, by the time the last sled passes, a sled could be coming from the other direction.
Remember as you ride & meet a groomer the equipment is NOT able to leave the trail due to it’s weight. Pull over & stop. Wait for direction from the driver. Give ’em a thumbs up. They groom so we can ride!
Please ride on the right side, slow down, limit alcohol & no off trail riding.
Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are still marked. With the sun there is surface slush on the SNOW. If a lake is not marked it probably is not safe.
THINK COLD!!! Keep DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!
It’s March & we’re still riding! See ya on the trails!
