FAIR EARLY RIDING CONDITION & GROOMED
We got SNOW! On average about 5 inches maybe 6 inches of new SNOW. Wet packy stuff. Perfect for panning the trails! Not going anywhere either. High of 7 today 7 & 9 below tonight. Cold for a while with temperatures in single digits or 10’s during the day. And single digits at night or even below zero. Weather guys forecasting SNOW on Sunday & Monday. Let’s see if they are right.
Grooming resumed with all trails except Trail 70W were groomed. No problem areas to report.
Here are some updates on the trails:
- Trail 1N has a logging operation in the section between the Town of Washington Town Hall & Eagle Lake. Clearly marked with signs.
- Wisconsin River Trail – 10W/13N is now being groomed off & on it is icy and rough in spots.
- Same for Manske Swamp – 3N. Both were groomed last night.
Catfish Lake Loop & Eagle Lake Trails are now both marked and officially open. Please stay by the barrels to be safe. Reminder the Catfish Lake Loop to Lumpy’s is NO LONGER a trail.
If you are riding zip on over to the “grade” to check out the 2018 Eagle River Area Fire Department ICE CASTLE!!!! Located adjacent to the downtown “grade” trail by the Historic Railroad Grade. The lights installed change colors. Check out this link Eagle River Ice Castle to check out more photos. Darn pretty!
It’s the start of the Vintage Derby today at the Derby Track on Hwy 45N. Racing starts at 9:30am with time trials. Check out DerbyTrack.com
