MORE SNOW and MACHINE STILL DOWN!

Two to three inches of new snow fell over the last 24 hours with the trail system in an overall very good condition, good in towns and near roadways. Groomer Operator Chris was working overtime in the Big Deere and getting very good results with the new snow. With only one machine right now expect the trails to get choppy throughout the day. Quest hauled our Pisten Bully back to the groomer barn in Shingleton after doing some trouble shooting. We will be on the phone first thing this morning with the dealer to get it diagnosed and repaired asap. Lets hope for a speedy repair process. More Snow is in the forecast so get out and ride safe, stay right and enjoy the great riding conditions! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
