TRAIL REPORT, Sunday, January 1, 2023 2:00 p.m.
WEATHER PUTTING BRAKES ON A GOOD SEASON START!
Grooming is still currently on hold. Last Wednesday evening temperatures climbed and the snow became unworkable. These above freezing temperatures topped off with rain still have the Snow saturated with water. All it will do is ball up and pack the groomers. Trails are choppy with dirty snow in corners and near roadways and some wet areas. There is hope in the forecast though with temperatures dropping Tuesday night and what appears to be a 100% chance of Lake Effect Snow. We will notify as soon as grooming starts back up. Please  note the Wetmore Spur East of Wetmore along M-28 is still in rough condition near the big curve with steep banks. Ride with caution through there. Do your snow dances and wish for cold weather and a good amount snow for a recovery!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: NONE

24 Hour Forecast: Rain/Snow/Fog, 36ºF, Winds W 5 mph.
Currently: Light Drizzle, 35ºF, Winds W 5 mph
