TRAIL REPORT, Sunday, January 15, 2023 3:00 a.m.
TRAIL HOLDING ON NICELY DESPITE HIGH TRAFFIC!
Traffic is up this weekend but the trails are staying fairly flat with good snow cover and a good hard base. Sections of trails are becoming a bit sugary in areas and some ice developing in corners. Keep a close eye on conditions as you ride and stay right. 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). Get out and enjoy some great riding conditions and keep the snow dancing going – we really, really need new snow.

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trails 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton West to Trail 417, Trail 7, Trail 417,  418, 419 & 422
