TRAIL REPORT, Friday, January 13, 2023 6:30 a.m.
COLDER WITH TRAILS TRYING TO HANG ON!
A very wet wintery mix has passed through ending in a very light dusting of snow. Temperatures dropped last night allowing half our system to get groomed flat with heavy traffic already starting. Expect choppy conditions as the day progresses. 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). Overall Fair to Good conditions with Traffic and lack of new snowfall. Get out and enjoy what we have and keep the snow dancing going – we really, really need new snow.
