Cross Country Skiing
There are many pristine X-C ski and snowshoe trails in the Eagle River area. The trails are among the best in the Midwest. The trails are groomed for both skating and classic-style-cross-country skiing. Eagle River area trails are reportedly, overall, in good to excellent shape. Afterglow has excellent conditions for both skate and classic skiing. With warm weather in the forecast they plan to close their trails, Sunday and Monday to preserve the excellent base. Anvil was just groomed and tracked and is reporting a 4" base with some bumps. Conditions are fair. Nordmarka trails have not been groomed for about a week, but are holding up pretty well. Skate lane is good, classic tracks are shallow and getting washed out; fair condition. Three Eagle trail was just groomed. A skier reported freshly groomed and tracked trails in excellent condition. Razorback was groomed this week and their big grooming machine picked up some dirt and leaves, but it's still good to very good skiing out there.
Eagle River area snowshoers will find trekking opportunities on both trails and miles upon miles of logging roads. Snowshoeing has been fantastic, but warmer weather we're having will make the snow soft. Great time to take kids out as things relate right now, because of the moderating temperatures. However, if the temperatures get into the high 30's or if it rains, you'll want to give your snowshoes a rest. But not to worry - -colder weather and fresh snow is in the forecast and that will spruce up the Eagle River trails again. Stay tuned. We'll keep you posted.
