GET OUT AND ENJOY PERFECT TRAILS!

Overall Trail conditions are very good to excellent. Currently we have a light but steady amount of riders and trails are staying great throughout the day. Only sections of Trail 8 and 7 between Shingleton, Christmas and the Buckhorn are getting light chop by the next grooming run and the AuTrain drifting areas have some long residual rollers.  Ride with Caution, Ride Safe and Enjoy the Trails!

Interesting sight – about 2 miles of Trail 8 North of Shingleton appeared to have a pack of wolves running it. The trail was completely covered with thousands of foot prints. (picture below of one set)

Past 24 hour Grooming operations:
Trails 8 East to 7 miles north of Shingleton and 8 West, 7 North to Christmas and south to CR440, Trail 419 East and West, Trail 417, Trail418, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur.

Today’s Forecast: Snow Showers, 22 degrees, 10 to 15 mph Northwest wind. No measurable accumulation.

Photos: Operator Keith’ Trail 8 run last night. One photo from Operator Tyler running the Bully (last picture)

PLEASE ride with caution, stay right and be respectful, stay on the trail and off the throttle when in the towns.
Keep Snow Dancing with your friends and stay tuned for updates

WATCH FOR GROOMERS!
