WARM SPELL BUT TRAILS HOLDING GOOD!
A wet wintery mix has been passing through with grooming operations on hold at the moment. Trails are groomed flat with very light traffic. a decent base and are holding up up well for some great riding. We have a few wet trouble spots on Trail 418. The holes on Trail 418 are hazardous so ride and cross with extreme caution (Map in images showing locations). Currently the snow is very wet but temperatures are forecast to drop tonight so a grooming attempt will be made. Get out and enjoy this late start to the season and keep the snow dancing going – we really need the new snow.
