BITTER COLD RIDING CONDITIONS!

Still no new snow with an increase in rider traffic and the trail system in an overall very good condition, good in towns and near roadways. Temperature were in the negative double digits last night. Groomer Operators were once again getting very good results last night. Overall no real changes so get out and enjoy the great riding conditions. Ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
On an important side note, SLOW DOWN! The bad side of smooth trails is fast riding. Within 6 hours yesterday we received two phone calls from our field contact concerning the death of two riders. These were two separate incidents in different areas, both were riding too fast and missed corners. So you can ride for many days to come, slow down, ride for conditions and stay right.
