Trail Report: Sayner
Date of Report: 02/08/2015
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Need More!!!
Area Report: .
We are continuing to groom and the trails are surprisingly turning out very nice, considering the lack of new snow. While everything is turning out flat, the areas of -“perfect, pristine, & white”- shrink by the day with out new snowfall. There are enough areas further away from town(s) where the trails are good to excellent, that I still list them as “Fair” on average. Conditions are a wide ranging mixed bag to say the least. Most of the corners continue to be icy.
Currently, the forecast is calling for 1 to 3 inches this coming Tuesday. Its a believe it when you see it thing. Earlier this morning, it was 3 to 5.
Our lakes continue to be fine as long as you stay on the marked crossing(s). There are a lot of areas off the trail with bad slush. We just had too much heavy snow early on this season, back in November. This is why clubs that have swamps & wet areas have been having so many problems this season. Luckily, we were able to route around all of the swampy wet areas we used to have to deal with.
We still have logging operations working on trail 51 between intersections 344 & 352 and 6/11 between intersections 205 & 353. Please keep an eye out for logging ahead signs, logging equipment, and logging trucks. Do everything you can to get and stay out of their way and watch for their directions. These people are not out there to ruin your snowmobiling experience. They are out there trying to make a living.
As always, PLEASE RIDE SAFE!!! Expect the unexpected. Respect especially the groomers and also other riders. You are not the only one on the trail, so always expect traffic to be coming at you around every corner.
