I headed out for a ride hitting some Eagle River, Lake Tomahawk, Sayner, Conover and St. Germain trails. All the trails I rode were groomed recently. Another night below 0 had the trails packed in tight and solid as a rock. It’s hard to give an overall rating on the trails. You’ll find a lot of good, some fair and some very good to excellent. I was scraping the carbides in spots – mainly on the insides of corners and on plowed road trails. The groomers are doing their best to pull snow back onto corners but I found some that were still icy and/or thin on snow on the insides. Speaking of corners, be careful as they get pushed out with traffic making them icy. Some trails have a brownish color from the snirt. I also found some sections that are all white, smooth as a road and really fun to ride.

The town trails, heavily traveled corridor trails, and tight twisty trails will be more in the fair range. The more you can avoid these the better riding you should find.

It would be nice to get some snow to freshen things up and give the groomers some more to work with.
