Snow Cover: 7"-8" in the woods
Date of Report: December 27, 2016
Temps fell below freezing by yesterday afternoon & stayed below all day today. The groomers were out last night & really had things smooth & firmed up this morning. We had a dusting to maybe 1/4″ new snow today.
I took a quick 77 mile loop to BJ via 8W, 15N, 6E & 13S. Traffic was light near Conover & significantly higher to the west. Conover trails 8 & 13 were actually good but I am keeping my report conservatively at FAIR because I only rode corridor trails & not every trail got groomed last night.
Twin Haven via the new trail; Trail is nice except for the last 3/4 mile where it turns off the grade. This section must be ridden slowly. For those running along the power lines N from North Twin boat ramp, you now have a stop sign at the grade, E/W traffic has the right of way.
As far as I know the lakes are not marked yet, stay off until they are marked.
News and Reports:
Don’t forget you need a WI trail permit to ride the state’s groomed trail system. Aggressive riding causes more trail damage than slower, less aggressive riding. Until the base gets built up & we get more snow to work with, groomers can only do so much to repair damage.
