No new SNOW yesterday or overnight. Snow this afternoon.  Lake Effect clipper coming from the far northwest over Lake Superior from Canada. Looks to be a couple of inches.

Didn’t ride yesterday.  Did volunteer at the Lac du Flambeau Northern Hornshoe Groomer Barn feeding the over 100 MS Fundraising Ride.  Talked to lots of riders who said the trails in ALL of Vilas county were in GOOD condition.  In Eagle River area the Women on Snow are riding with large groups.  Ride Right.  Ride Safe.  Even in the corners.  Riding this afternoon from home on 10E to Conover for dinner at the Log Cabin.  Report tomorrow morning.

Here are the GROOMED TRAILS:

10/13 from the groomer barn heading through Eagle River past the Ice Castle & on down to Trail Alt 13/3 to Three Lakes Trails connect & turn around.

Back up Trail Alt 13/3 toward Eagle River.  Just south of Eagle River turning right & connecting to Trail 10E. 

Trail 10E along with the 9mile spur groomed to the Three Lake Trails connect & turn around.  GRANPA GRAHM which is Trail 1S & Chanticleer Inn trail that leads to the south entrance of Eagle Lake trail NOT GROOMED

Trail 10/13 from the groomer barn heading north out of Eagle River groomed all the way north to the Conover Trails connect.  Turning left/west on 10/13 crossing the Wisconsin River Bridge.  All the way to the intersection of 10/13. 

Trail 13 heads north & groomers groomed ALL the trails that head to Bauer’s Dam area & connect with Conover.

Trail 10 & Trail 7 from that intersection head west to connect with Sayner & St. Germain trails.

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 More Fresh SNOW

See ya on the trails this afternoon & tonight!!
