TRAILS BEAT THE WARM WEATHER !
Overall excellent late season trail conditions but listed as very good until we get a groom on the entire system. We lost a noticeable 2 feet in off-trail snow depth with this warm spell and rain but the trails held strong. Hands-on trail inspections yesterday found all trails are smooth with a deep hard base. The only exception is one short flooded segment of Trail 418 noted in warning below, also see photos. Grooming Operations will resume late this afternoon. A light amount of Snow is forecast which will help in the grooming recovery work. Get out and enjoy some great late season riding!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Operations are currently on hold and scheduled to resume late Friday afternoon.

Today’s Forecast: Snow Showers, 29 degrees, 25 to 35 mph Northwest wind. Up to 2 inches of snow by morning.

Cover Photo: Trail 419 West in excellent condition.

PLEASE ride with caution, stay right and be respectful, stay on the trail and off the throttle when in the towns.

WATER HAZARD - TRAIL 418

- A fast snow melt has created flooding on Trail 418. Location: 1 1/2 miles East of AuTrain. Please Avoid this area until further notice. Significant water is flowing down and across the trail. Deep slush for about 1/8 of a mile and very deep, slushy water just off the trail. Again please avoid this area so we can easily repair it once the water recedes. DETOUR: Take Trail 417 South from Brownstone Junction to Trail 8 East.
