Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 26 inches (+\-) in the woods
Date of Report: February 23, 2018
The area received from 6 to 9 inches of white gold. We have been out and panned down this gift from God! Until we go over it at least one more time, it may not be quite set up as good as we like it. So with traffic today, expect a few bumps to develop. We will be out again tonight and that should set things up better for the rest of the weekend. We will be grooming the entire weekend. There could still be icy corners, so please – as you always should anyway – ride with caution.
With the added weight of the new snow on the ice, slush pockets could develop on the lakes, as the ice is forced down and water comes up through cracks.
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 for logging 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.
