TRAIL REPORT, Tuesday, January 3, 2023 7:00 a.m.
TRAILS HOLDING TOGETHER – BARELY!
Regular Grooming operations are still on hold. Yesterday Anthony and his crew got the Miners Trail 422 Reroute signed after Johnny placed all the posts Monday. Chris ran the Deere up there  last night so Trail 422 is complete. There are a few wet areas north of H-58 though and also on Trail 8 North of Shingleton.  A majority of our system was groomed last night flattening things out before they freeze in. There are a few thin, bare and wet areas so we really need new snow to get regular grooming started. There is a small amount of hope in the forecast with a few inches of snow forecast for tonight and Wednesday. 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 so we can get this season started!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Partial Trails 8 & 419, Trails 7 & 422

24 Hour Forecast: Snow Showers, 30ºF, Winds NW 5 to 10 mph w/ 20 mph gusts
Currently: Light Drizzle, 32ºF, Winds N 3 mph
