HOLDING ON!
  Overall trail conditions are very good with the 10 to 12 inches of from the other day. Primary trails are holding great and only getting a little choppy by the next groom. Trail 419 West, Trail 418, Trail 417 and Trail 7 South may start to get choppy today with our equipment issues.
The Pisten Bully is fixed so we are able to hook-up and operate the Dubie Groomer wings again. They are needed being down a machine right now. Hopefully the John Deere parts arrive today so we are back to full grooming capacity. Thanks again to Trenary Northern Trails for helping cover our west side Tail 8 and Trail 7 into Christmas.

Trails 8 East to 7 miles north of Shingleton and 8 West, 7 North to Christmas, Trail 419 East.

Today’s Forecast:  Snow, 30 degrees and 5 to 15 mph Southeast wind. 1 to 2 inches of accumulation.
