TRAILS IN VILAS COUNTY REMAIN OPEN
GTS Trails app shows no grooming overnight.
Tomorrow morning the Vilas County Forestry, Rec & Land Department will post the official PSA announcing the closure of snowmobile trails in Vilas County with date & time. This following a majority vote by the 11 member clubs of the Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance.
Announcement from Howard Wolf, President of the Sno-Eagles Snowmobile Club:
“We have pulled the plug on grooming for the season.” “Thank you to everyone for your support to the Sno-Eagles Snowmobile Club.”
End of season riding in much of the Sno-Eagles, Eagle River trails. While trails are open it is “Adventure Sledding” with all conditions. Trail 10W/13N that runs through town amazingly is still covered with thin crusty snow. The one mile section 10E/Alt13 that heads south out of town is still in GOOD condition. Heading south at the intersection on Alt13 is FAIR at best with POOR in the wide open areas. 10E has all sorts of conditions. FAIR, POOR & even some GOOD. The one way trail on south side of Hwy 70E heading east has the best conditions. The north side one way heading west for the most part is POOR & has many bare areas or water. Heading north & west out of town will be the best better but except more & more POOR. Avoid wide open areas as much as possible.
Catfish & Eagle Lake trails will be removed today Sunday on Catfish Lake. Sunday or Monday on Eagle Lake.
If you are going to ride do it today!
