And when you meet a groomer, we will stop and shut down bright lights signaling the riders that it is safe to pass. If you are traveling on a freshly groomed trail, be alert for a groomer ahead. He might be coming back the other direction. I had a near miss the other night when we surprised each other at the bottom of a hill. Please slow down.
