Trail Conditions: OPEN ~ Fair
Took a ride Mon up to Yukon 51, NO water on trail 8 between MW and Lazy Ace (a bit bumpy but I’m sure they will be able to groom that soon) the grade (#17) was in Awesome shape! Hats off to Mercer Sno Goers & White Thunder Riders for keeping that in such great shape! We continue to hear great things about all the other Vilas clubs. Our trails are in fair condition. They will be upgraded by the weekend. Trail #2 & #8 are actually in good to very good condition. I rate fair overall because we still have a bumpy section connecting 6 to trail 2 but that will be groomed tonight. Trail 6 remains closed (you can ride the shoulder of Hwy W to access Winchester PI trails but PLEASE USE CAUTION). We will attempt to open trail 6 from the Jct of 2 and 6 by the weekend so stay tuned.
We had a very productive club meeting last night and are gearing up for our fundraisers.
REMEMBER THIS: ALL OF OUR GROOMERS ARE VOLUNTEERS. THEY SQUEEZE IN VOLUNTEER HOURS BETWEEN WORKING FULL-TIME JOBS. Most of us ride far less than you do, please remember that before you complain about conditions, we along with all other clubs, are busting butt to make your ride enjoyable.
Remember to use your hand signals, stay on marked trails, respect the deer on the trails AND STAY OFF OF THE LAKES THEY ARE NOT SAFE.
