Winter continues in Eagle River & all of Vilas County.  Still lots of SNOW.  Next SNOW tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday. Another 1-2 inches  Time to ride!

Rode again yesterday.  Short ride of 55 miles.  Headed east from our home on 10 it was groomed the night before  Very Good.  Short run down 9mile spur to 9mile Rd.  It was Excellent.  Turned around & headed east on 10 to the connect with the Three Lakes trails. Eagle River section was Very Good except for hill at the connect with Three Lakes which is on a high southside hill.  Beyond that on 10 was Very Good to Excellent.  TL8 to Hwy 32 crossing.  All Very Good to Excellent. Crossed Hwy 32 by Sunset Grill & rode along side of airport runway also Excellent.  At the end of runway there was a section that takes you across a few lakes was ragged and Poor except on the lakes all the way to Hwy 32 crossing by SpiritView restaurant.  Good after that ’til town where it was soft.  Hwy 45 crossing to Alt13 heading north to Eagle River.  13 was Very Good to Excellent.  At 10/13 intersection rode 10E home.  All snow covered.  Thinner at the beginning.  Pine Ln & Taylor Lk roads had enough cover to ride.  From the start of one way past ERRA Sports Arena was Good, then Very Good all the way home.  If your not ridin’…..why?

Grooming last night
17N to Columbus Rd

Remember as you ride & meet a groomer the equipment is NOT able to leave the trail due to it’s weight.  Pull over & stop.  Wait for direction from the driver.  Give ’em a thumbs up.  They groom so we can ride!

Please ride on the right side, slow down, limit alcohol & no off trail riding.

Businesses on the 2 marked lakes, Catfish & Eagle have removed the barrels. Lots of slush & with temps dropping there was concern the barrels would freeze in & be hard to remove. 

Take The Pledge, Protect Snowmobiling access for today’s and future snowmobilers (


See ya on the trails!   Maybe this year we’ll ride ’til midnight on the 31st!
