January 2, 2022 – 6:45am – 6 degrees

Chilly this morning.  Might reach 10 degrees this afternoon.  Then headed below zero.  6 below later tonight.  Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday daytime temps will pop up to the 20’s with SNOW Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.  Stay tuned for totals.  Cold for the next week so SNOWS not going anywhere.

Trails are SNOW covered & in EARLY RIDING CONDITION.  Pretty surprised at the trail conditions.  Fair to Good.  Not a big change in SNOW totals or conditions. Of the trails ridden Trail 3N aka Manske Swamp is rough with heavy chop at the west end were it connects to Trail 10/13N.  Trail 10/13 aka Wisconsin River Trail is very rough with moguls. Both trails are north of town.  Trail 70/13/7 that heads west from behind the Dairy Queen in town has rough areas from the re route & heading west until you come out by Synergy Salon.  All areas that can have mush are frozen tight.  Trail 10E has snirt at the Loon Lake Rd crossing.  This is just before you get to Trail Alt 13.  Left to Three Lakes SNOW covered. Right into Eagle River fantastic.

Catfish & Eagle lake trails were marked & are NOW OPEN.  To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Note the spur from the northside Eagle Lake boat launch that leads to Eagle Waters is NOT OPEN.   

Overnight the groomers groomed nearly the entire Eagle River Sno-Eagles trails according to Groomer Tracking app. 

Only trails not groomed were Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp, Trail 10/13 aka Wisconsin River Bridge. All of these sections are north of Eagle River where Eagle River trails connect to the Conover trails. Short section of Trail 17N from Trail 1 east heading to Phelps.

Have trail photos? Send them to me at  Would like to post them on the report. 

Chilly.  Might want to put on another layer.  See ya all on the trails!
