TRAIL REPORT, Wednesday, January 18, 2023 6:30 a.m.
WEATHER SLOWLY COMING AROUND!
Again no significant changes from yesterday. Warm rainy weather still has grooming operations on hold with trails in an overall Fair condition. The main trails have fair snow cover but are choppy, soft and sugary. We do have some hope in the forecast with heavy snow Thursday. If we are lucky this will help us clean things up by the weekend. For now we are watching temperatures closely and letting the trails dry out before grooming will resume. For those die hard riders expect thin areas with dirty snow, gravely in areas with some icy inside corners and wet areas. 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).  Stay tuned for updates!

24 Hour Forecast: Mostly Cloudy, 30ºF, Winds N 15 10 mph w/ Gusts to 25 mph
