Trail Reports Submitted by the Actual Trail Groomers                                Trail Map



March 23, 2019

When I crawled outa bed at 0730 it was 13 degrees. Its now an hour later and its 20 outside with a clear blue sky. Gonna be a beautiful day!!

Here`s an IMPORTANT NEWS FLASH.....we closed the gates on the swamp trail #8 just south of town. It flooded in Friday night/Saturday morning. DO NOT go around the closed gates!!

I made a mistake in yesterdays report so I`ll correct that right now. Groomer Don did not run the Point trails on Friday but he will run them today.

The only other trail that we ran last night was the Falls trail. Groomer Scott reported it as still pretty good with no water showing up yet. We are gonna run that trail again tonight plus the Stump trail.

All I got for ya`s today. The season is winding down FAST. Looking at the weather, this may have been the last decent weekend.

Fighting through the snow



March 22, 2019

25 degrees this morning and partly sunny with a stiff NW wind. We did get up into the 40`s again yesterday. Here`s what went on yesterday.....

Groomer Scott ran the Falls trail #45 and called it pretty good. He said there is no water showing up yet on the trail.

Groomer Mike ran the Stump trail #8 and said the same. Both guys said the snow is pretty soft, kinda like grooming mashed potatoes, but notice we are still grooming with the temps in the 40`s? I told ya we can with the drags we have. It did get below freezing last night so the trails are hard and FLAT!!!

Groomer Don is running the Point trails this morning. We are done with the South trail #8 cause the swamp is gettin pretty iffy and we don`t want to bury a machine in there this time of year plus there is a new logging operation going on in the Federal Forest section across from the Silver Creek Bar. You can still get through there with a sled but be watchful of the loggers. It is about a mile long section that they have plowed down.

All for today. I`ll keep plugging on til we can`t plug no more!
