Winter Storm Warning

The 4 inches of SNOW yesterday & a bit more over night.  The trails are SNOW covered with slippery ice underneath.  Making for dangerous conditions. Was going to ride yesterday but changed our mind.  Now tomorrow riding for sure!  If you do go out today & ride SLOW DOWN & RIDE RIGHT. 

Eagle River & all of Vilas County is under a Winter Storm Warning.  SNOW should move in around 5pm continue into later Thursday.   Weather service say 9-12 inches.   Sure hope they are right. With it is coming high winds, so there will be drifting.  Have ridden in these kind of conditions & don’t recommend unless you are an experienced rider.  Quick changing conditions can be dangerous.

Temps will be in the 20’s during the day & 10’s to single digits at night until Saturday.  So whatever we get in SNOW isn’t going anywhere.

Grooming will start with panning today. Following the SNOW storm more panning or rolling depending on the SNOW depth. Followed by regular grooming.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are still marked.  Very icy under the new SNOW. Surface is very hard thick ice. 

Another short report.  Cross your fingers.


See ya on the trails!
