Groomer Report

Trails are open and we have groomed  all the  way to the western end of our system. Trees are hanging low and many are broken and lying on the trail. Use caution, especially near wet areas.

There is now a plowed parking area at the beginning of trail #8 under the International Bridge, which  has an all season porta John.  Make sure you lock your vehicles and trailers.

Remember trail base is the amount of snow between your track and the ground below not the amount of fluff piled up in the woods.  10 inches of snow compresses to less then a inch on the trail.
