It snowed on and off most of the day yesterday and again this morning so we did pick up another inch of snow. I headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Eagle River, Sayner, and Lake Tomahawk trails. St. Germain and Sayner trails had been groomed last night. The Eagle River and Lake Tomahawk ones I rode looked like they had been groomed the day before. Trails were pretty smooth today, just a little chop on some of them. They did have a softer feel to them with the new snow. I’m keeping the trails as an overall fair/good rating. You’ll see everything from a few poor spots up to some excellent areas, but most will fall into the fair or good categories. One area to watch out for is icy corners. There are a lot of them out there – even with sharp carbides, I was pushing through some. There is some snirt out there in areas while other trails are mostly to all white. The carbides will scrape in spots – mainly on the insides of corners. I did ride some beautiful stretches that made me want to ride all day.
Most plowed road trails have an ice base with little snow on them. There are some spots where there’s a little bare pavement.
Some lakes are nice and smooth while others have had some drifting so are bumpy.
Any snow we get is great and gives the groomers more to work with.
