TRAILS ARE AWESOME!

No significant changes with overall excellent trail conditions, a light but steady amount of riders and smooth trails. The base is rock hard and flat with a nice groomed layer of softer snow. Great grooming results last night with a few problem areas near AuTrain on Trail 418 in the Drifting Zones.
Prior to last nights run we had some last minute repairs to do on the groomers. Operator Keith had a chance meet up with with David in a U.P. Central Groomer at the Brownstone Intersection last night. Took a short break with a good groomer talk conversation. (pictures)

Great riding conditions so get out and enjoy the trails
