Reported By:SSMSA and the Sault CVB
Date of Report: 12/05/2014
Trail Conditions: Poor
Snow Cover: 3 inches
Area Report: Groomer Report
The groomers are out today in Raco going both east and west, plus the loop around Kinross airport and south towards Pickford. Temps are supposed to hover right around freezing the next few days in the daytime but drop into the 20’s during the night.
Trails are open and you can now ride your sleds legally. We will be opening gates this week as we groom if there is enough snow. We have some good snow in some areas but we have many wet spots that will be a challenge to say the least.
In city trail was groomed also and there was lots of wet areas but a lot of snow also. We need cold weather now to freeze them up.
Soo to Kinross is not frozen yet as well as Kinross to Raco. There is some warm weather in the forecast for next week so those 2 areas will be a while before the groomer gets out to go mud bogging. If you go for a ride I would recommend avoiding those areas that are always wet until we have cold weather because you will get soaking wet. There is no use us wasting fuel and breaking equipment until colder temps are called for. You may be able to get your sled over some of the wet spots now but if we take the groomer thru it with no cold temps your sled will be like a submarine.
