EAGLE RIVER TRAILS UPDATE
Trails Good to Very Good

SNOW has slowed.  9+inches. With couple more forecast today for wet packy SNOW.

Groomers went out very early this morning heading north on Trail 10W/13N.  Groomed to Conover connect, Wisconsin River Bridge heading west, Trail 10W/7 & Club trail that head south to Hwy G.  Also set to groom Trail 17N, 1N to Eagle Lake & Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp.  By end of tonight, Thursday all of Sno-Eagles Country will be groomed.   Full grooming throughout the entire weekend.

As you ride be aware of road clearing vehicles which can cause high snowbanks at road & driveway crossings.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are open & marked & still safe.  Expect very slippery riding with SNOW cover.  Slow down. Always stay by the orange reflective barrels to be safe.

NOTE: Off of Trail 70W after entering St. Germain is a trail locals call “The Goat” trail.  It is a Club Trail that starts at TIN 287 to TIN 288 that is CLOSED.  It is clearly marked as CLOSED with fencing & signs.  Please do not ride through this area from either direction. DO NOT RIDE ON HWY 70 as this is not legal.

On snowmobile designated road routes need to follow the speed limit set for the road for all vehicles.

Last, off trail riding is a big problem.  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL. 

Keep DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!  THINK COLD!

See ya on the trails later today!

Eagle River has long held the distinction of SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and it’s a matter of pride that causes local clubs and businesses to work so diligently to maintain that title. Snowmobile fever becomes a way of life in our Eagle River winters, and the talk often turns to “picks”, “carbides” and performance. In fact, these snow machines seem to outnumber cars during the winter months.

Over 500 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS connect the communities of the area, including access to major county and state routes. Trails wind throughout the area’s scenic forests, but frequently pass close to service businesses which can provide you with fuel and sustenance, shelter and refreshment. If you don’t have your own snowmobile, several dealerships will be happy to provide you with equipment during your visit.
