EXCELLENT RIDING CONDITIONS!
We received a dusting of new snow overnight and Operators reported excellent grooming results. Trails are on the lower fringe of Excellent with overall Very Good Riding conditions across our trail system. The only thing that could make them better is 6 inches of fresh snow. We have a great base building this year that is staying fairly flat between grooming runs. 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 CR440, Trail 417, 418 & 419 (reference map below for trail locations)
