3 trail warnings

ICY, WET CONDITIONS!
  Overall trail conditions groomed out very good to excellent Sunday night. Monday we saw a steady rain fall, an icy crust on the snow and slush forming in low areas. Grooming Operations were halted as snow will not process properly in those conditions. Traffic was very light so trails should be holding flat. With all of this we are reducing overall trail status to Good. We are watching closely to determine if we can resume grooming operations Tuesday night for a recovery.

Past 24 hour Grooming runs:
Grooming has been on hold due to wet, rain conditions

Today’s Forecast: Snow Showers, 14 degrees and North wind at 10 mph. Up to a inch of snow accumulation.

Keep Snow Dancing with your friends and stay tuned for updates!

WARNING - AVOID USING TRAIL 418 EAST OF AU TRAIN

- Monday's rain has water crossing and running down Trail 418 approximately 2 miles East of Au Train. This has created slushy and deep water areas for a long section of the trail along with a hole across the trail. Reports have sleds getting stuck and riders that are making it through are getting wet. Again - avoid using Trail 418 East of Au Train until further notice.
