Trail Report: St. Germain
Reported By: Ken Jackson
Date of Report: 01/16/2015
Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 12 inches in woods
Area Report: Groomers have been working with the older snow that has remained. Little new snow over the last week, but frigid temps have kept things nicely intact.
Snort developing near roadsides and close to some lake access points. Slush is minimal, but some heavy areas of lake slush are still present on Rainbow Flowage. Many bumpy spots on lakes from ruts created over new years when slush was more prevalent.
Woods trails are very good, but some icing in corners can be found. Warmer temps this week will increase that.
Forecasts are calling for snow after the weekend. Things are good now, but we will need some white stuff to keep things happy. If you see a groomer, give them the thumbs up sign. They deserve it!
