TRAILS HOLDING ON WITH WARM WEATHER!
Overall very good to excellent late season trails. There is a substantial hard and flat base with a soft top for some perfect riding conditions. Trails are holding with the weekend forecast looking favorable. We tried grooming again last night but it was “balling up” in the groomer so the run was cut short. We will try again tonight.
Pisten Bully is still sitting on Trail 8 just East of Trail 422 with a path groomed around it. Machine will be moved today so watch for heavy equipment. Please slow down and ride with caution on Trail 8 between Wetmore and Shingleton. (see map)

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 419 West – cut short due to wet snow.

Today’s Forecast: Isolated Showers, 42 degrees, 5 to 10 mph Southwest wind.
