FRESH SNOW NEEDED!

Still barely any new snow with increased rider traffic and the trail system in an overall very good condition, good in towns and near roadways. Groomer Operators were once again getting very good results but starting to see sugary snow develop and icy corners on the tighter trails. This is a very high traffic long weekend so expect the trails to get choppy throughout the day. Overall no real changes so get out and enjoy the great riding conditions. Lets hope for a good snowfall soon. Ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
