Groomer Report

February 23th, 2017

At this time our trails are not rideable due to 3 or 4 days of daytime temps reaching into the 50’s along with rain on one of those days and possibly today. There is a winter storm in the forecast for this Friday & Saturday with the possibility of 3 – 5 inches of snow, however this may not be the solution we’re all hoping for as we really need some seriously cold temps to freeze all the wet areas first. I could see from the highway yesterday that trail 8 west is under water at this time. Streams, creeks and swampy areas are open or dangerously close to being open.

IF we get 5 inches of snow this weekend you might be able to ride railroad grade trails such as our trail 8 east as well as unplowed Forest Service roads.  All we can do at this time is watch and wait. There would be no sense in the groomers trying to go out at this time as there are probably more bare conditions than snow conditions on the trails. That said, I will notify you asap if conditions change.
