Trail Reports for Mercer Wisconsin
January 17, 2018
The Mercer area has accumulated a few inches of snow over the past couple of days, which has helped bring our snow base back up to where we like it to be. Over the next couple of days, we will be experiencing a warm-up to the mid and upper 30s with light snow expected Sunday and Monday.
MECCA Cross-Country Ski and Snowshoe Trails
The trails were groomed Monday evening. The track was reset so classical should be solid. Deck with new snow should be a little soft with a solid deck under. Conditions are excellent.
We have seen a lot of people out ice fishing, and have been told in some areas the ice thickness is 9” – 12”, with that being said ice thickness is all dependent on the lake or body of water that you are on. So please use caution and be weary of anywhere you decide to go ice fishing, conditions can change at any time.
Conditions Good to Very Good
The conditions are the best we've seen all year. We have a solid base with a good amount of snow on top. Groomers have been out on all trails over the course of the week and we are classifying the entire trail system as good, but the further north you go the more snow you will find; the northern half of our trail system is considered very good. We are monitoring the temperatures for this weekend as currently Friday and Saturday are above freezing, we hope that with our base and minimal direct sun the trails will hold up. This Saturday we have a fundraiser at Eunica's Beaver Lodge with an Italian buffet from 5 to 8pm, please come out and support our club as the money raised at these events assist with trail grooming. Be sure to check out trail 182 which has been groomed for the 1st time in 4 years and is in very good shape right now. Also, please remember to drive safe and at a controllable speed.
