Very Good overall conditions

Lake-effect snow

1 general warning

4 trail warnings

DOES NOT GET MUCH BETTER!
A steady lake effect snow yesterday along with high winds had substantial drifts building. The machines were working hard with great grooming results everywhere. Overall our trails are in very good condition with exception of Trail 417 and 418 which are Fair and schedule for serious prep work over the next few days.
Operators Phil and Daryl were out grooming yesterday with Operators Chris and Kris out last night. Trails 419 East, Trail 7 North and South, Trail 8 East and West were completed with good results. The 7 mile stretch north of Shingleton again flattened out nicely and packed in good.

Today’s Forecast: Periods of Snow Showers, 20 degrees and 10 to 20 mph N wind. Less than 1 inch of accumulation.

PLEASE follow the trail onto the shoulder of M-28 at the railroad crossing. DO NOT cross directly over the railroad tracks. This is a safety concern for riders, a potential for train derailment and/or loss of a trail crossing.

PLEASE ride with caution, stay right and be respectful, stay on the trail and off the throttle when in the towns.
Keep Snow Dancing with your friends and stay tuned for updates!
