are the current trail conditions for
ALL THE VILAS COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAILS ARE OPEN!!
TRAILS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION
Trails will be open until midnight March 31st
Have told you not to trust the weather guys. Hit low 50's yesterday. Today we have hit the high already, 36. Temperatures will steadily drop all day & it will be 4 tonight. High of 15 Wednesday & 4 below. With the pop up yesterday I moved the trails down in condition because they are icy anywhere the sun could get at them. Woods riding will be much better. So out in the sun just barely good & in the woods good to very good. Go to Sno-Eagles.org & click Trail Conditions for photos I took this morning.
Actually saw several riders this morning.
Very important to stay on your side of the trail with the icy spots out there. Also the corners could be pretty "interesting" so please slow down. We have enough statistics for this riding season.
The snow fall for the winter is somewhere around 7 feet+. Terrific winter. Even with the warm up snow banks are still high. So at the crossings do double duty looking both ways. Standing up on your sled & look both ways is the best. Vehicles on the roads just can't see us & we are no match for a truck or car.
As you are riding be aware of the 3 digit brown signs. These 3 digits numbers could save your life. You will see them in Vilas, Forest, Oneida & Iron Counties. If you get into trouble call 911 & give them the last number you saw & the county. The Department punches it in & your where abouts appears plus it give them the best way to get to you.
Here are some woods riding ideas.
Trail 10E to the Three Lake Trails is my personal favorite. We call it the Kimble Creek Run. Takes you through the woods & you come out just outside Three Lakes. Run through town & pick up Trail 13 the grade back to Eagle River. 50-60 mile run. Another is to head west out of Eagle River on 13/70W to the intersection of 13/70W & Trail 7. You cross the Hwy to get there. Take that to Trail 17. Right turn to head north. This will take you through some very nice woods trails. As move along you can pick Trail 70A or Trail 70B. More woods on 70A & B. Making you way into St. Germain trails & Sugar Camp trails. This ride you will have some burn out. These rides have less pit stops so the traffic should be less but so will the stops be less.
Catfish Loop & Eagle Lake Trail are marked with orange barrels. Plenty of snow. Have had no reports but pretty sure there is surface slush with all the evil sun yesterday. Lots of ice underneath. Drive steady through it. Stay by those barrels.
Another great addition is Day Trip Trailer/Tow Vehicle Parking. It is located by driving North on Hwy 45 & turning left on Bluebird Rd. Bluebird Rd is in between Days Inn & Leif's Restaurant. It curves behind Leif's & that is where the parking is located. Watch for the signs.
Will have to wait until next winter to see the Ice Castle as they took it down yesterday for safety.
Ride Right & Ride Safe!
See ya on the trails!
