GREAT BUT COLD RIDING CONDITIONS!

We received a few inches of Lake Effect Snow across the Northern part of our trail system over the last 24 hours. Operators reported excellent grooming conditions which continue to make for great trail riding. Trails are in overall Very Good Riding conditions across our trail system. Trail 419 was not groomed last night as our JD 7130 won’t be completed until later today. Again hopefully grooming of Trail 419 resumes tonight. Please respect residential property owners and STAY ON THE TRAIL, No Snowmobile Signs mean just that. Please DO NOT run the Powerlines off of Trail 419. Our Team of volunteer Groomer Operators will continue to do their best to keep trails flat so; Get out and ENJOY the Trails Ride Safe and Stay Tuned for updates!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton West to Trail 417, Trail 7 North from Christmas South to Buckhorn Road, Trail 422 & Wetmore Spur (reference map below for trail locations)
