Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 18 inches (+/-)( in the woods.
Date of Report: February 16, 2018
Temps above 32 the last two days hit our trails pretty hard. The hit was not as bad as we thought would happen – still – near town and busy trail crossings it is very brown. The further away from town you get – the better they get. So near town is poor to fair – away from town is still good to very good.
We groomed last night and will be grooming though out the weekend. Everything is as flat as we can get it without having new snow to work with. The town trail will start the day off flat but won’t last long with traffic.
The main key is safety. It is very icy throughout the system. Please adjust your speeds down to a level you can control in these conditions.
News and Reports:
There are logging operations in the following locations: Trail 9 between Hwy 70 (TIN 364) and Ross Lake Rd (TIN 225). There is also logging in the Jean Lake Rd area of Trail 7 North, between TINS 227 & 800. The logging, in this area, should be in the woods away from the trail.
(TIN = Trail Intersection Numbers)
Please watch out forlogging areas. Slow down and stay out of the way of the loggers. DO NOT hassle the loggers. They have the right to close down sections of any trail they are logging near or using. If they get hassled too much, that is exactly what they will do – shut that trail down. The logging operations can run at anytime of the day or night. Loggers use some of the trails to drive in and out. So please be watchful in logging areas for trucks on the trail. Logging operations in any of these areas can start and/or stop without warning. So even if you ride in an area and there was nothing going on one day – it can start back up the next day.
