Snowmobile Trail Report for Sunday, March 8, 2015

I headed our for a ride hitting some Sayner, St. Germain, Eagle River and Lake Tomahawk trails. St. Germain, Sayner and Lake Tomahawk groomed and their trails were smooth. The Eagle River trail I rode hasn’t been groomed for a few days and along with getting bumpy, a majority of the corners were pushed/blown out making them icy and/or thin on snow.

Yesterday had a high temp of 33 but the sunshine that we saw in the morning disappeared and we had a cloudy afternoon. There was some melting but most trails I rode today didn’t show many sign of it.

Majority of the trails are in the fair to good category with some poor/bad spots and then some very good to excellent. You’ll see it all from trails that are pretty brown from snirt and have areas thin on snow to others that are all white with plenty of snow. Watch out for icy corners. There are areas where the carbides will scrape mainly on the insides of corners, areas that have melting form the sun and on some plowed road trails. Lakes are in great shape with the only concern I saw was some ruts from ice fishermen driving their trucks on them.

It’s 35 degrees right now. So far it’s been mostly cloudy but there will be some melting today. If the sun doesn’t come out there shouldn’t be much damage to the trails. If it does, some areas will see melting. Tomorrow looks to be the start of a significant warm up. We’ll have to see what happens… If you ride, you’ll be seeing more poor areas as the day goes on. That means you’ll have to ride over some bad stuff to get to the good trails.
