Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 30 PLUS in the woods
Date of Report: February 16, 2019
Our trails right this minute are great as far as having snow on them. However they are bumpy ……..
Our tracks machine has been giving us problems for about 2 weeks now. We were provided with a replacement/loaner. It worked well for a short time and then it gave problems. The problem with our machine is in the computer and more specifically – the Diesel Exhaust Fluid system. This is the worst possible time to have problems with the track machine when we have so much snow to deal with.
Year after year, we have had icy conditions to deal with. Up until this year we have been running tire chains on the front of our wheel machines. They work great with the ice and in deep snow – but – are very high maintenance. So this year we went with different tires and installed ice studs. They also work great in icy conditions but not so well with deep snow conditions. So we had a wheel machine slip off the trail a couple times.
We are supposed to have another track machine delivered in the morning. We will put it to work and cover as much of our trail system as quickly as humanly possible.
We sincerely apologize to everyone – but – these equipment issues are beyond our control.
