Trails Good to Excellent Condition

Heavy traffic over the past weekend but all in all trails are still in Good to Excellent condition after last nights grooming. However we are headed into a warm for the better part of this week.  At 8am it is 5 degrees with a high of 36 and overnight temperature of 21.  Cross your fingers that the evil sun stays undercover.

Right now there is an 8+ hard base with total snow at about 22-23 inches.

Trail Boss reports groomers out last night grooming.  All main trails were groomed.  Do not have report for some of the Club Spurs.  Will try to have information on those by tomorrows report. 

Rode a short 50 miles yesterday to be home for the Packer Game.  Started east of Eagle River on Trail 10E which was groomed but already had heavy traffic. Watch at driveways as large moguls just as you cross.  All the way to 10E/Alt 13 intersection.  Left down Alt 13 all the way to downtown Three Lakes.  All groomed to Three Lakes but again lots of traffic. Road crossings & several corners icy. Back to Eagle River on Alt 13 & in Town & all the way through to Trail 17N. Groomed both on east & west side of Hwy 45.  Some bumps in the swampy area on the west side which would be expected. All the way to Trail 1 heading to Eagle Lake.  Good riding with the trail along side Townline Rd bumpy. Crossed Eagle Lake & no surface slush.  Connecting back to Trail 10E & home.  All in all Good to Very Good.

Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trail are OPEN & safe by the orange reflective barrels.

As you ride keep the Emergency 3 Digit Numbers in mind.  If you need assistance with an emergency call 911 & give them the most recent number you saw.  This helps dispatch pin point your location.
