FINALLY SOME DECENT SNOW!

We received 3 to 5 inches of drifting snow with more to the West which is much needed. Still lighter traffic and a trail system in overall good condition, now good to fair in towns and near roadways. Open areas will have drifting as winds and light Lake Effect Snow continues today. There still may be some underlying icy corners on Trail 7 closer to Christmas and Trail 8 just North of Shingleton so ride with caution. Groomer Operators were getting very good results last night. With the new snow it looks like Trails are shaping up for a really good weekend of riding. Ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
