Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 12-18"
Date of Report: March 15, 2023
Here we go again. The grooming on Monday night, combined with the cold temps set the trails up beautifully for a ride on Tuesday. But that evil sun came out yesterday and today. So, where it is hitting the trails, it has melted that snow. But in the woods under cover of the trees, the base is holding.
There won’t be any grooming Wednesday and Thursday. We will see what the next system brings whether we groom Friday or Saturday. So far, weather report is rain starting Wednesday, changing to snow into Thursday and lasting until Saturday. What time that rain changes over is going to tell how much we get. Some reports are saying 3-5″, and others saying 5-10″.
I’ll report back with more info when it happens.
Remember with the March tempurture swings, the trails can start out firm in the morning, and change to soft mushy conditions by afternoon. When riding, be aware of these changes occuring. Also, towns have been winging the snow banks farther off the roads, so there maybe trail crossings with a higher bank to cross.
News and Reports:
- A reminder to ride between the orange blazers. Be careful in corners as there is an ice layer under the snow. Ride Right ➡️ Ride Safe.
