ALL THE VILAS COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAILS ARE OPEN!!

Yes the trails are in Very Good to Excellent Condition & 1/2 the system in Sno-Eagles Country was groomed last night. The other 1/2 will be groomed tonight. Each day until trails close at midnight March 31st I will be posting pictures that I take on the way in on Sno-Eagles.org so all can see the real conditions.
Still lots of snow in Sno-Eagles Country. Plenty to ride one. Here are comments from riders this weekend:
"Rode 104 miles today. Started with Kimble creek trail down to Three Lakes (excellent) then to Sugar Camp (excellent) then 15 up to St Germain (getting snirty in spots, lot of snirt in St Germain ) then 10/13/3/17 back to Eagle River. Good all the way. Roads are starting to melt a little in spots."
As you ride be aware that corners might be icy so slow down. Stay on your side.
The snow fall for the winter is somewhere around 7 feet+. Terrific winter. With all the snow comes very, very high snow banks. 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.
There are tons of trails to ride in Vilas County. Here are some 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 ride would be 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. Making you way into St. Germain trails & Sugar Camp trails. 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. No reports of surface slush. Stay by the barrels. Please don't ride anywhere on a lake that is not marked as a trail in Sno-Eagles Country or for that matter anywhere. At the boat launches there still are ruts from trucks & ATV's so be aware for that. The wind left some righteous drifts which are now big bumps.
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.
Ice Castle coming down as I write.
Ride Right & Ride Safe!
See ya on the trails!
