Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 12-18
Date of Report: December 31, 2019
We received 8 inches of heavy wet snow yesterday, some branches might be hanging over trails and water and slush are showing up in low areas from the rain before the snow came, we have to wait for the cold to come in and freeze these areas up, Most of the lakes are not marked yet until they freeze the water and slush , Tonight the temp is going to be a high of 9 degrees so that should help, The trails will improve every day now that cold temps at night will firm everything up,
