FRESH SNOW FOR AN EXCELLENT CLOSE!
A few inches of fresh snow fell with overall great late season trail riding. Trails are staying flat with a good base across most of our system. A few icy corners are starting to form with In-town trails getting dirty along the roadsides.
Operator Tyler did a grooming run from Wetmore to 7 miles North of Shingleton yesterday with great results. Get out and enjoy this last day of the official grooming season.
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. It’s been awhile now, hopefully it’s picked up before trees start growing through it.

Snow is still in the forecast for today and Sunday so STAY TUNED!

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

Today’s Forecast: Scattered Snow Showers, 31 degrees, 15 to 20 mph North wind.

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

SOME ICY CORNERS

- The warm daytime weather has created a few icy corners and patches. Slow down, stay right and ride with caution.

LOGGING

- Road clearing for logging trucks has started on the North leg of Trail 422. A short section just as you come off of H-58 is being cleared by dozers. Another short section just North of Shingleton on Trail 8 has also been cleared for logging trucks. Ride with caution in these areas and watch for heavy equipment as you pass through.
