I headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Eagle River and Sayner trails. All the trails I rode have been groomed recently. Trails were packed in nice as temps were down to -10 this morning. They were smooth. Corners had plenty of snow on them. I have to say that trails are in the best shape they’ve been in all season. About the only complaint one could have is if a trail gets bumpy from traffic or lack of grooming.
Lakes are bumpy and if you get off the marked trails expect deep powder with pockets of slush.
With all this snow, snowbanks along the roads are unusually high making it difficult for sledders and vehicles to see. Slow down on plowed road trails as cars pulling out of driveways or side roads can’t see you coming. Also, some signs have been covered by the snow. If you see a stop ahead or stop sign covered up – stop and clear them off.
A word of caution. There are a LOT of deer on the trails because the snow in the woods is so deep.
