Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 24 inches (+/-) In the Woods
Date of Report: February 9, 2018
We groomed the last two nights and will continue nightly through the weekend. Average conditions are good with areas closer to towns only poor to fair and further in the woods the trails are excellent!!! The trails are flat but corners are icy, especially toward the later part of the day..
Please ride safe and stay to the right. Too many riders are riding in the middle of the trail as if they are the only ones out there. You do that going up a hill, the chances are good you will meet another rider and if they are in the middle too someone has to give. With these icy corners, please check your ski runners. Spending some money for some new ones now is far cheaper than crashing later. Slow down when you’re coming into a right hander and stay on the inside. This is NOT a race on these trails and you’re NOT going to win.
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.
