GREAT GROOMING RESULTS!
Temperatures dropped last night and grooming operations went great. There are a few areas of Trail 8 where the snow is getting “Sugary” but they are flat underneath. Overall very good late season trails. There is a substantial base with a soft top for some great riding conditions. We are starting to see a few icy corners and in towns trails are starting to get dirty with some bare spots. The entire system was groomed with exception of Trail 418 and our section of Trail 417. Some sections of Trail 8 were hard and rough but we cut it all out of there for great riding. Supposed to be very warm today so we will see what happens as far as groom-ability tonight. Bridges are starting to get narrow so slow down and ride with caution. The Pisten Bully was pulled to a location for pick-up yesterday. It is located on the side of Trail 8 right near M-94 in Shingleton so ride with caution in that area.

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 419 East and West, Trail 8 East and West, Trail 7 North and South to CR 440, Wetmore Spur and Trail 422.

Today’s Forecast: Sunny, 54 degrees, 5 to 10 mph Southwest wind.

Cover Photo: Trail 8 West – perfect ribbon.

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

SOME ICY CORNERS
