Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 2 to 5 inches on the trail
Date of Report: February 23, 2020
I am still listing our trails in good condition overall, but due to warm temps and continued extremely heavy traffic – they will go down hill fast. So much of this heavy traffic is immediately after grooming. So not long after the groomer has gone through; there is no evidence that we groomed. A large part of our grooming has been done in the evening this year, so there has been a lot of traffic on the trail right after the groomer. Most of our groomer drivers this year, due to jobs, cannot groom after midnight. Mostly – Only the President and VP have been going out after midnight on the weekends. On the weekends, however, we still have heavy traffic as late as 2am. So consequently, we have had a lot of people this year accusing us AT TIMES of not grooming at all. This is simply NOT true. We have done the best we can this year and are not about to demand to a volunteer to wait until midnight to go out. So its either most of the trails get groomed in the evening during the week – or not groom them at all.
There are a LOT of ARMCHAIR Trail Bosses out there. If you think you’re so smart – come take over the club.
PLEASE continue to stay close to the marked lake crossings. This year, due to the way lakes froze over with heavy snow cover, areas of the lake away from marked crossings ARE NOT SAFE!
