WANTED – SNOW

Overall Trails across our system remain Poor with dirty snow and rocky patches. We wish we had better news after 2 1/2 weeks of no snowfall but as of now we are still in a long waiting game. On the good side the ground is staying frozen so when we do get snow none will be lost. Forecast is calling for rain/snow Friday followed by snow Saturday and Sunday but only a few inches. Who knows, maybe we will get lucky and it changes to measurable amounts. For now Grooming Operations will remain on hold until we see a substantial amount of snowfall. While we wait the crew has continued doing upgrades on the club owned equipment and work around the shop. Please hope for the best, continue the snow dances and Stay Tuned for updates!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: NONE, On-Hold

Forecast: Patchy Fog, High 33ºF, Winds SE 10 mph to 15 mph, gusts to 20 mph
Currently: Couly, 32º F, Winds Calm
