Snow Cover: 3 inches average on the trail
Date of Report: January 2, 2017
Traffic was extremely heavy over the New Year’s weekend. That was spectacular to see for our awesome area businesses!!!
We groomed every day this past weekend to try to keep up with the heavy traffic. On the average things are in fair condition. Some sections are great and a few not so great. I spoke with many riders and none had a complaint!
Most area lakes have been marked. Stay by the markers when crossing!!!
There is supposed to be a system beginning to move through the area later today. We are supposed to see perhaps up to 3 inches and some freezing rain. While you might not like to hear about rain – a little rain is good for adding badly needed moisture to our snow base. Then in perfect timing the temps are supposed to drop like a rock again Wednesday. IF this works out right – we could have some spectacular conditions by next the end of this week. (I will update this report Wednesday or Thursday to report how much snow we received.)
Logging continues on a few sections of our trail system. Watch for logging ahead signs and SLOW DOWN!!! Watch for signals from the loggers and obey them. DO NOT hassle them. If they are bothered or hindered too much in any way – please keep in mind – they have the right and option to shut that section of trail down!!! Please be patient. If you don’t want to wait – turn around and go another route.
Please ride safe! Slow Down and Ride Another Day!!!
