Snow Cover: 2 +/- on the trails
Date of Report: January 27, 2017
This is more good news & bad news. The good news is the temperatures dropped and stopped the melting. The bad news is the trails are very icy and the last snow storm missed us to the south. The is some snow in the forecast for over the next 4 days. Anything is better than nothing. I just spoke with some riders that rode up here from Tomahawk. They said the trails were really pretty good – considering.
Conditions – again – hard crusty snow and very icy spots. Corners are very icy. Southern facing hills are very icy. On average our system is fair. There are poor areas, including close to towns, concentrated traffic sections, and where we have logging taking place. Further into the woods is still great. We groomed on Wednesday just before the temps dropped and flattened out the base again.
Continue to watch for logging ahead signs and heed their warnings. Obey the speed limits in those areas. Do not hassle the loggers or get in their way. They have the right to shut the trails down, where they are working, if they choose.
PLEASE! Lets be carefull out there!!!
