TRAIL REPORT, Tuesday, February 21, 2023 6:00 a.m.
A FEW INCHES OF FRESH SNOW!
We had a few inches of snow fall overnight but not enough to really change anything. Overall most of our main trails are in a good condition. Dirty snow near towns with just a dusting of snow on pavement, if any. Trails are hard and icy in areas so be careful in the corners especially. On Trail 418 from just East of AuTrain West to Trail 417 South the base is icy, gone in sections and gravely.  The remainder of our Trails have a hard, fairly flat base with a layer of sugary snow on top. Hopefully the snowy long term forecast hold true to improve conditions. We did help out Trenary Northern Trails with their machine currently down grooming Trail 8 West to Gwinn for them. Keep a close eye on trail conditions as you ride and stay right. Stay tuned for updates!

Past 36 hour Grooming Operations: Trail 8 from Trail 7 North West through Chatham, trail 8 from Bear Trap West to Trail 419 near Wetmore, Trail 7 North, Trail 419 from trail 8 into Wetmore.

24 Hour Forecast: Afternoon Snow Showers, 26ºF, Winds W 10 to 15 mph →N  15 to 20 mph, gusts to 40 mph,  1 inch accumulation
Currently: Mostly Cloudy, 27ºF, Winds W 9 mph, Gusts to 18 mph
