TRAIL REPORT, M0nday, January 16, 2023 7:00 a.m.
MOTHER NATURE NOT COOPERATING!
Warm rainy weather has grooming operations currently on hold with trails in an overall Fair condition. Traffic was up this weekend with warm temps, high winds and sun yesterday. The trails really took a hit losing some snow becoming choppy. The main trails have fair snow cover but soft and sugary. For those die hard riders expect thin areas with dirty snow, gravelly in areas with some icy inside corners. Road crossings and entering towns will have dirty snow and bare pavement. Keep a close eye on conditions as you ride and stay right. We have hazardous water holes on Trail 418 so ride and cross with extreme caution (Map in images showing locations). It is expected to have more wet spots develop with current weather conditions. With this years lower than normal snow conditions we are open to other snow making ideas, the dancing ain’t working too well…….

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: On Hold

24 Hour Forecast: Rain Showers, 35ºF, Winds S 10 mph w/ Gusts to 25 mph
Currently: Sprinkles, 35ºF, Winds Variable 3 mph
