Last weekend was a great weekend for all snowmobilers and skiers for the Birkie! Groomers have been out this week getting everything back in order!
Questions have arose with the upcoming warmth. As of today, the trail conditions are still great. Many times people see the trails out near and/or on the roads and see them as very dirty and bare. Those trails out on and near the roads do get affected by heavy traffic as they are connectors, and they also get the sand and salt from the road and many times they are in the open and exposed to the sun and elements. Please do not judge the trails system by those few trails. The trails in the woods and on the lakes are still great! They have warmed up a bit during the day the last couple of days and then freeze back over at night so there may be some icy spots but they are still good.
Saturday will warm up with chance of freezing rain. Anything can change but so far that is the forecast. Trails should withstand on Saturday and be more than rideable, but we will have to be patient and see what the weather brings.
Some have asked when our snowmobile trails close. The answer is there is no closure date. At some point when the conditions become un-rideable, lakes become unsafe and the season looks to be officially over the gates on private property will shut, stakes will be pulled from lakes and groomers will be put away. So at this time there is no plan on that yet. We will have to see what the next week brings. March is always kind of a bonus month; sometimes we have snow sometimes it ends abruptly earlier. We hope we have a little time left but March’s weather is unpredictable, we can get a warm up then a snow storm so who’s to say at this point.
In the meantime, ride when you can and stay tuned after the weekend for an update!
