REGULAR SEASON COUNTDOWN!
Overall good late season trails with a little chop in areas. A few sections of Trail 8 are getting “Sugary” but for the most part flat underneath. Trail 7 South took a hit over the weekend and groomed out good late yesterday. There is still a good base across most of our system with a few patches of water and icy corners forming. The in-town trails are getting dirty with some bare spots.
The Pisten Bully is still located on the side of Trail 8 right near M-94 in Shingleton so ride with caution in that area.
Trenary Northern Trails has stopped grooming and picked up their brush cutter from us yesterday. They will be brushing some wet areas of trail while the ground is still frozen. Thanks TNT!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 8 East and 7 miles North of Shingleton, Trail 7 South to CR440 and Trail 419 East.

Today’s Forecast: Sunny, 42 degrees, 5 mph South wind.
