GREAT LATE SEASON RIDING – ONE BIG PROBLEM !
Overall excellent trail conditions from Trail 422 West. Trails prior to grooming are in very good condition and excellent after. The big problem is the Pisten Bully went down with major damage on Trail 8 just East of Trail 422. Bad enough being down a groomer but in this case worse because we cannot get around it with another machine. We are working a plan to have it and the groomer towed out late Monday with the John Deere. Until then Trail 8 East of Trail 422 and North of Shingleton is expected to get very rough. We will be doing what we can to address the situation as soon as possible. Ride safe!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 8 East to Trail 422, Trail 8 West, Trail 7 North, Trail 419 East, Trail 417 and Wetmore Spur.

Today’s Forecast: Sunny, 31 degrees, 5 mph Southwest wind.

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