Trail Report for Jan 28/15
Trail Conditions
Both groomers went out today to try and smooth out the trails and rough up the icy spots.
The trails are showing signs of late spring riding with dirt spots showing and icy sections. Trails are very much still rideable, caution is advised
We need some snow and we will be able to make the trails magical again

Caution is still advised with the early snow conditions there are still a lot of leaning trees and weak trees along the trail that could fall with more snow.
Please use Extreme Caution when crossing water including rivers, lakes, ponds and streams

Trail Report for Jan 21/15
Trail Conditions
All South trails have been groomed within the last two weeks, The groomer is heading out today on the south and will see what he can do before it gets to warm. (we cannot groom when the weather is above 0)

Most of the trails in the North (east of highway 32) have been groomed at least once in the past two weeks. Some of the trails are in need of a groomer but due to the temperature we have not been able to get out again as of yet. But the operator is anxious to get going. Gundy Cabin Trail is now open and has been groomed and is in great shape. Carson Cabin to letter 0 has not been groomed and will be cleaned this weekend hopefully, then we can send a groomer late next week or early the week after

Caution is still advised with the early snow conditions there are still a lot of leaning trees and weak trees along the trail that could fall with more snow.
