February 18 2019 8:08am – 3 – High 16

The President’s weekend comes to a close.  One of the busiest I have seen in a long time!  3 days off for many of you & deep SNOW in Eagle River!

Next SNOW is forecast for Wednesday with the weather guys forecasting 3-5 inches.  Looks like SNOW for next weekend.  But it is early & we all know the weather guys do not always get it right.  So stay tuned.

It’s February & the evil sun is out longer & will be out today.  The sun will crust up the SNOW a little.  Cold again tonight. 5 below.

Groomers were out again to get the trails back in shape after the busy weekend.  Remember they work long hours grooming so we can ride.  Give them a thumbs up.

  • 10E to include 9 mile
  • 13N to Conover turn around
  • 10/13/3 aka Manske Swamp
  • 17N
  • 10W/7 to Sayner/St. Germain turn around
  • 3/Alt13 to Three Lakes turn around
  • 10W/13N aka Wisconsin River Bridge

There are still some low hanging branch on the trails.  Most of the road crossings have high banks.  So take it slow & please stop at the road & driveway crossings. The sun will soften up the SNOW.  With the ice base underneath it can make riding squirrely. Might even dart around a little.  Didn’t see any other problem areas.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.  There was wind Sunday evening so there could be some moguls.  Be safe & slow down.

Been mentioning this all season:

Sno-Eagles Country has 2 areas that have one-way trails.  10E is a one-way trail from the ERRA Sports Arena all the way out to Nicolet Mini Mart.  The other is the 13’s up near Buckatabon Bridge & Bauer’s Dam area.  Clearly marked with DO NOT ENTER signs.  Plus trail signs are backwards if you are going the wrong way.  

Thanks for THINKING SNOW & riding in Eagle River!!!  Remember mid week riding is the best!
See ya on the trails!
