Trails Good-Very Good

February 8 2019 6:28am – 4 below – High 5 today

Plenty of SNOW over the last few days.  Easily over a foot!  SNOW fell at a rate of an inch an hour from late morning to near dinner time.  Groomers out last night working to smooth it all out.  Should be great riding this weekend.

After the colder day today, which is great for trail set up the temps will come back up a little.  Saturday, 13 high & 1 low.  Sunday, 18 high & 5 low.  Great riding weekend!  Get the sleds loaded up on the trailer.  Hook up the trailers to the tow vehicle.  Head on up!

There still may lot of branches, limbs & trees down from the ice storm & the volunteer Sno-Eagles crew continues clearing, cutting & removing.  So as you ride be aware that there still may be downfall in the trails or very low hanging branches.  Along with that there still is a hard icy base under all this new SNOW.  So maybe slow down a bit. No problem areas to report.

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.

EAGLE LAKE TRAIL & CATFISH LAKE TRAIL ARE MARKED & OPEN. Stay by the reflective orange barrels.  

Thanks for THINKING SNOW!!!

Hope you’re planning on riding.  See ya on the trails!
