BITTER COLD RIDING!

We received 2 to 3 inches of new snow and it is still coming down with bitter cold temperatures. The trail system is now in an overall very good condition, and though a little dirty now fairly good in towns and near roadways. Drifting is expected with the higher winds with some icy corners on Trail 7 closer to Christmas and Trail 8 just North of Shingleton so ride with caution. Groomer Operators were getting very good results last night and into the morning. Trail conditions can only get better as we continue to get snow with this storm over the next 24 hours. Dress for the cold, ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trail 8 from West Trail 417 intersection East to 7 miles North of Shingleton, Trail 418 East from AuTrain, Trail 419 from Wetmore South to Trail 8, Trail 7 from Doe lake Road North to Christmas, Trail 422 to Miners Castle Road.
