Trail Report

Thursday December 6, 2018 7:43AM

Poor overall conditions

Lake-effect snow

1 general warning

4 trail warnings

Almost There!
The ground is covered with 3 inches of fresh snow this morning. We will only be doing some spot grooming to finish freezing things in and build a base. No regular grooming yet.
Today’s forecast is for a sunny 26 degrees, 2 inches of snow and 20 mph NW winds. Temperatures are to drop which will help speed up the freeze. Up to 4 inches of snow over the next 24 hours.
If you must venture out please ride conservatively and not dig holes when you you accelerate. A hard flat trail base makes for a great season of grooming and riding.
Keep Sow Dancing and we will continue to do what we can in preparation. Stay tuned for updates!
(Today’s photos are more from Chris and Keith packing in and working Trails 7, 8, 417 & 418 Monday night)
