FRESH SNOW COMING!

About an inch of new snow fell last night with 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. Expect the trails to get choppy throughout the day. Snow is in the forecast but no real changes yet so get out and enjoy the great riding conditions. On the bad side we just had our Bully Groomer staged in Christmas go down last night, Johnny limped it home but it’s not looking good. Lets hope for a speedy repair process. In the mean time, 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 419, Trail 7, Trail 422 to Miners Castle, Wetmore Spur.
