GREAT RIDING!

We received another two to three inches of new snow today making for a trail system in overall good condition, now good to fair in towns and near roadways. There are some 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 with the new snow again making for great riding conditions. Ride safe, stay right and enjoy! Keep doing the Cold Weather Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned for updates!
