Very Good to Excellent

Trails have plenty of SNOW.  Temps for the next few days in the 20’s daytime & teens overnight.  Then on Saturday going forward temps will drop into single digit highs & below zero at night.  Looks like SNOW Thursday night into Friday.  No hard totals yet.  Looks like maybe 1-2 inches at best.  Best of all little or no sun until Saturday according to the weather guys.  Which means time to ride on great trails!!!

Trails are great!   Did not ride very far north but have to believe they are terrific because the trails east, west & south are Very Good.  Through town Good to Very Good.  Did not find any problems.

Groomers doing a fantastic job this season. Early panning built the base of ice that held up for the most part during the past major warm up. Last night groomed:

10W/13N heading north from the groomer barn to Conover connect
17N to 3N aka Manske Swamp
3N aka Manske Swamp
Headed west over Wisconsin River Bridge -10W/13N intersection
10W to Croker Rd
13N to Buckatabon Bridge

This very early AM grooming 17N & picking up 1N to Eagle Lake & touching up 3N. Plus Trail Alt13S to Three Lakes connect

Do know Eagle & Catfish Lake trails still have drifts off the marked trail so please stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Remember not all lakes are safe. 

NOTE: Off of Trail 70W after entering St. Germain is a trail locals call “The Goat” trail.  It is a Club Trail that starts at TIN 287 to TIN 288 that is CLOSED.  It is clearly marked as CLOSED with fencing & signs.  Please do not ride through this area from either direction. DO NOT RIDE ON HWY 70 as this is not legal.

On snowmobile designated road routes need to follow the speed limit set for the road for all vehicles.

Last, off trail riding is a big problem.  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL & Take the Snowmobilers Pledge.


See ya on the trails real soon!
