Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Thin, flat and hard
Date of Report: March 9, 2022
Well folks, it is that time. ….I have a feeling the end is near. Currently, the trails are fair, with some thin corners and exposed roadways will be bare. Dirty snow at trail roadway intersections. Trails in the woods are fine to good.
There is a warm up in the forecast starting on Sunday with temps in the upper 30’s and 40’s for the entire week. We will discontinue grooming this weekend. The trail conditions will deteriorate quickly next week with sun and warm temps. If you want to get in the last of the season rides, do it in the next few days….
The trails are as flat as they have been all season – that is the “good” news. These are the following criteria that must be taken in accord when riding:
Road routes are thin in areas. There hasn’t been fresh snow in over a week. The sun can quickly melt roadways this time of the year
The trail bed / corners are icy – safety
Currently, the trails are rock solid, slide lubrication can be an issue.
The lakes are all marked with minor signs of slush. There are multiple roads across Boom Lake so use extreme caution when traveling on that route.
There is one trail closure on the Hodag Sno-Trails system: Trail H4 from Boom Lake to the intersection just north of River Rd. This is basically the “land” route to not running Boom Lake. The trail is closed at this point. We have been just notified that this is a permanent closure. Running the lake is the reroute.
Conditions will change quickly at this point. We will try to update as they change.
Time to ride!! The end of season bus is warming up….
