Poor overall conditions

No snowfall

1 general warning

5 trail warnings

Still Not Good.
Please get cold and SNOW!
We need Mother Nature to release her typical winter fury so we can give this snowmobile season a boost. Trail conditions are still deteriorating with the warm sunny days. Overall its dirty riding conditions, poor with bare spots and waterholes. We are not doing anything with the groomers, just maintenance and minor trail work clearing some trees.
Today’s forecast is for a sunny 42 degrees, 10 to 15 mph S winds. Snow tonight but no measurable amounts.
Still – If you must venture out please ride conservatively and not dig holes when you you accelerate. A hard flat trail base makes for a great season of grooming and riding.
Keep Snow Dancing with your friends. Stay tuned for updates!
