HAPPY NEW YEAR – GETTING BETTER!
2 to 4 inches of new snow last night with a slight improvement to the trails. Light snow conditions and heavy sled traffic still have our trail system in overall fair to good condition, poor in towns and near roadways. There are some icy corners, ice patches and dirty snow in the outlying areas so ride with caution. Operators were out grooming with better results having new snow working into the mix. Lets hope this snowfall continues to keep this trail improvement moving forward. As usual trails are expected to get choppy throughout the day so ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
