Trail Report – : Eagle River, Wisconsin – January 27, 2022

Reporter:Holly t
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 7 inch base - Need more fresh SNOW
Date of Report: January 27, 2022
Area Report:


January 27, 2022 – 7:00 am 18 degrees – Which is also the high for today

What a temp swing.  It is 40 degrees warmer this morning than yesterday!  Have reached the high for today with temps steadily dropping all day into single digits below zero.  Will be in the teens for highs through the end of weekend.  Great riding temps.  Next snow is next Monday.

Really little change in the trails.  Hard base is icy in spots especially corners & open areas. Snow on top is crunchy so it’s fast (slippery).  Recommend slowing down.  Trails on northside of roads like 10E one way heading toward Eagle River & 17N north along Hwy 45N have areas of just forming snirt.  Especially under the big pines. Too much sun causing that.  Today it will be cloudy.  Most roads are ice covered.  Out of towns riding is GOOD.  Trails need fresh SNOW.

The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows most trails groomed.  Here’s is what was NOT Groomed last night

Trail 10E – That include no grooming of the spurs – Trail 10E begins just south of Eagle River off of Trail Alt13/3 & heads east connecting to Three Lakes Trails – NOT GROOMED

Trail 70W/7/17 – These trails begin in Eagle River off of Trail Alt13/3 behind the Dairy Queen & heads due west connecting to St. Germain & Sugar Camp Trails – NOT GROOMED

Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN.  To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels.  DO NOT think the entire lake is safe.  There have been several sleds going into the water this winter.  ALL were no where near a trail or the barrels.

Sure would like trail photos so I can post to the report to let other riders see the real time conditions.  Send them to 

Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!  Trails Need Fresh SNOW

See ya on the trails!!
