Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 8-12"
Date of Report: January 12, 2023
We suspended grooming for the second straight night. Normally we try not to do this, but the current temps forced our hand. Several other area clubs also stopped grooming last night. We are all hoping for the falling temps today to re-freeze the trails and we can get back to business.
I made the trail conditions fair because I haven’t been out to see what happened yesterday with the warmer temps. If I get out today, I will make an update to the post.

- 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.
