We all knew it was just a matter of time til it was official… Vilas officially closed their trails today… so early to have the season end this year. Still got one more ride in me yet tho..
Only 279 days til Trails reopen!
If you are into warm temps and mud… its AWESOME!!! Unless we get a MAJOR dumping.. looks like it may be done! Not calling it an end of a season yet gonna head out west with a few buddies to ride out in the mountains this month.
But for here… for now… stick a fork in it! These trails are shot.
Picked up a couple of inches of snow for lubrication. It’s enough snow to get out of town here.. the further north you go the better the trails get where they picked up more snow . Trails have lubrication but are icy underneath. Things aren’t perfect.. but that’s what we got.
Took a few days off as Dawn and I went to see our grandson… Yup, we are now grandparents, pretty scary huh!! LOL
The 4.5″ snow received early this week was a BIG help. Here’s some pics from yesterdays ride. Everything snow covered and for the most part good to great. Been seeing the groomers out nightly, and a BIG THANK YOU, they do an awesome job -
Sunday started out with a group of 22 sleds. With a few oops and a couple lost sleds, we finally got to putting on miles late. We made it out to Tippler and got gas & refreshments at the White Tail and hurried home for Valentines Dinner with the ladies. We rode Eagle River, Phelps, Alvin, Nelma and Tippler. We started picking up snow Sunday and had received about 2″ before we made it home from the ride that night. By later evening picked up a total of about 4.5″.
Saturday we headed out for our big group ride with about 30 plus sleds of snow trackers. We rode up to Black Oak and Bents Camp in LandO for the Radar Run, which a few of our group joined in on. We all headed back that evening to the Hiawatha for our evening BBQ. The traffic up in LandO Saturday was pretty heavy. Between the heavy traffic and full sun some of the trails got beat up.
This weekend was our annual tracker group ride. Friday after rounding everyone up, we took a rode over to Minocqua and rode the Ski-Doo demo sleds at Cruiser Fest. After playing in Minocqua for a bit, we headed back to Eagle River to meet up with more of the group that came in for the weekend. We rode - Conover, Star Lake, Sayner, Minocqua, St. Germain & Eagle River… overall conditions ranged from fair to good.
