LAST DAY OF OFFICIAL SEASON!
Plenty of snow to ride the main trails with a few more inches of fresh wet snow overnight after a day of rain and sleet. As of right now we are getting a rain/snow mix with conditions not allowing grooming, too wet and snow will not process. Main Trail conditions are fair to good with a few water holes. Last groom was this past Sunday grooming Trail 8 from 7 miles North of Shingleton West to Trail 7 North up to Trail 418. There is very dirty, gravely snow along roadways near towns. Trail 7 South toward Buckhorn has bare section in the open areas. We will be watching temperatures and snow conditions closely to see if we can get a groom in tonight. A majority of our Trail System is on State and Federal Land and still rideable after today, March 31, just note that Trails will begin to be shared with ORV’s. Ride to the Right, watch for groomers and Stay Tuned for updates!

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations: None        From 3/28/2022 – Trail 7 North from Trail 418 South to Trail 8 and East to 7 miles North of Shingleton.
