A BIT MORE IMPROVEMENT!
A few more inches of fresh snow and cold temperatures allowed for more productive grooming yesterday. Trail 8 from Shingleton West to Trail 7 North up to Trail 418 was groomed with Operator Brian reporting a fair to good condition. Still watch for a few water holes. There is very dirty, gravely snow along roadways near towns. Trail 7 South toward Buckhorn has bare section in the open areas. The Bully ran for 7 miles North of Shingleton yesterday with fair to good results. Operator Keith reported a few small water holes and gravel patches in open areas closer to Shingleton but overall pretty good. For now operations will be very limited as we close out the season over the next few days. Ride to the Right, watch for groomers and Stay Tuned for updates!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: Trail 7 North from Trail 418 South to Trail 8 and East to 7 miles North of Shingleton.

24 Hour Forecast: Chance of Snow Showers, 22ºF, Winds N 10 to 15 mph, Gusts to 20 mph
Currently: Light Lake Efffect Snow, 17º F, Winds N 17 mph
