ALL CLEANED UP -ALMOST!
About an inch of snow last night as we wrap up clearing trees and cleanup the trails. Overall we still consider trails a 30/70 mix of poor to fair with a few good sections on Trail 8. Snow depths are ranging from very thin near the roadways and open areas to 6 to 12 inches in the shaded wooded areas. Heading South on Trail 7 it’s snow levels drop to thin and icy closer to CR440. We do have 3 to 7 inches of snow in the 2 day forecast which is good. Yesterday Chris ran the Big Deere South to CR440 on Trail 7. Johnny ran the Bully back to Shingleton from Christmas cleaning up Trail 419 and packing in Frog Hollow. Only section left is a clean-up run 7 miles North from Shingleton. Today the Big Deere has some major Track System Repair being done from last season but should be ready to go again tonight. All we need is snow so Please be patient and do some serious Snow Dancing! Stay Tuned as we continue to report changing trail conditions.
