Trails are Good and Groomer Ready for Parts!
Our Trails are holding fairly flat and grooming nicely. In the last 24 hours the Pisten Bully groomed Trails 419, 418, 417, 8 East and West, 7 North and 7 South to Buckhorn Road. Operators Phil and Chuck were getting great grooming results on both daytime and nighttime runs.
The not so bad – We lost the climate control heat in the John Deere Saturday night. Tom has it tore down and ready for the new parts that should be here today. If they arrive soon enough we may have it back on the trails tonight. Grooming operations will be good with Trenary Northern Trails helping on Trail 8 from Trail 417 to Trail 7 North.

Today’s Forecast: Snow, 25 degrees and 5 to 20 mph S wind. 1 to 2 inches accumulation.

PLEASE ride with caution, stay right and be respectful, stay on the trail and off the throttle when in the towns.
Keep Snow Dancing with your friends and stay tuned for updates!

- We have machines running both daytime and nighttime grooming runs. Please stay alert for grooming equipment on the trails.
