GREAT GROOMING RESULTS!
  Overall trail conditions groomed out very good with great riding conditions. Trails are holding great and only getting a little choppy by the next groom. Trail 8 West of Trail 7 North seems to get the worst with larger moguls in the corners as the day progresses. We are still operating a bit handicapped in the corners with the new 6175R John Deere not having its blade repaired yet. nothing happens fast going through the “process”. Thankfully the pulled Dubie Groomer can pick-up most of the slack. Our Pisten Bully is also tied back operating wingless until a new tractor hydraulic line arrives. Hopefully today we have the line and wings back in operation.

Past 24 hour Grooming operations:
Trails 8 East to 7 miles north of Shingleton and 8 West, 7 South to Buckhorn Road, 7 North to Christmas, Trail 419 East and West, Trail 417, Trail 418, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur.

Today’s Forecast:  Winter Storm Warning, Snow – heavy at times, 20 degrees and 10 to 25 mph East winds, 6 to 10 inches of snow by morning.

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!
