Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Need More!
Area Report: .
Our trails continue to be in amazingly good condition considering the lack of new snow. What has actually happened is the wind has caused drifting in many areas of the trail system, which gave the drags something to work with. The only problem is the snow is very grainy and lacks moisture. While it does provide plenty of lube for sliders and cooling for exchangers – it does not set up very well to help the trails hold up. Most corners continue to be icy. Lakes are fine as long as you stay near the markers. Overall – it is a mixed bag of trail conditions with areas away from towns being good to excellent while near towns it is poor to fair.
We still have logging operations working on trail 51 between intersections 344 & 352 and on 6/11 between intersections 205 & 353. This will probably continue for the rest of the season. 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. Please 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.
