Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 8-12"
Date of Report: January 11, 2023
We suspended grooming last night during the freezing drizzle we were receiving. We will inspect again today and determine if we need to be out Wednesday night. Currently the freezing precep has changed to snow. We are only suppose to get a trace to 1″ of this. Trails were holding up well with less traffic right now. Condition of trails is Fair to Good. Fair being the few bare spots in corners and thin base in others. But majority of the trails are Good. There is talk of the weather pattern changing that could bring us some much needed snow.
The Cemetary trail was groomed Friday and Saturday. Trail Boss Chad stated the swamp in the cemetary was soft, so he stayed away from that area on Saturday.

- A reminder to ride between the orange blazers. Along Hwy K West, there were several 100 trees removed this summer to place new electric poles. Most of the stumps are still there. If you were to hit one, it could ruin your trip quickly. Ride Right ➡️ Ride Safe.
