TRAILS IMPROVING!
A steady, light lake effect snow continues to fall. All of our trails are in good condition with exception of Trail 417 and 418 which still need a bit more snow. Those two segments are schedule for serious prep work later in the week.
Operators Phil and Daryl were out grooming yesterday and Jim last night. Trails 419 East and West, Trail 7 North and South, Trail 8 East and West were completed with good results. The 7 mile stretch north of Shingleton again flattened out nicely and packed in good. Some work needed to be done on Trail 422 along M-28 near Timber Products. PLEASE follow the trail onto the shoulder of M-28 at the railroad crossing. DO NOT cross directly over the railroad tracks. This is a safety concern for riders, a potential for trail derailment and/or loss of a trail crossing.

Today’s Forecast: Snow Showers, 23 degrees and 20 to 30 mph NW winds. 100% chance of lake effect snow today with up to 3 inches and it still looks like snow for the next few days.

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!
