Our entire trail system has been groomed with the last 36 hours with good overall trail conditions. Trail 8 is still a bit wet North of Shingleton and Trail 422 and Trail 419 have a few wet spots. Trails 417 and 418 are bit thin and rocky on the North West section of our trails. As of this morning Grooming Operations are on hold due to the rain and warm weather conditions. Timing is good with Christmas as traffic should be down today and tomorrow. The ground is still not really frozen in most areas so if out riding be conservative to reduce base damage. We will be watching temperatures and snow conditions closely with operation resuming as soon as possible. Do some serious Snow Dancing and Stay Tuned as we continue to report changing trail conditions.
Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trail 8 from Shingleton to Trail 7 South, Trail 7 South to CR440, Trail 422 to Miner Castle, Trail 419 East and West. Currently on Hold
Forecast: Rain/Drizzle, 39º F, Winds S 15 to 20 mph with Gusts to 35 mph
