Trail Update – Fat Bike Trail – Saturday, February 16th

Fatbike trail update: I hit the remaining trails that did not get groomed last night – Yellow from Cut-Off to the Hub, Jump Line and Roller Creek this morning. They will likely be soft and challenging to ride today. The trails that were groomed last night have setup nicely with a solid, firm base. There’s…

Trail Update – All Trails – Friday, February 15th

Trail update: The snowshoe and ski trail was groomed first thing this morning and the ski trail was trackset.

Trail Update – Thursday, February 14th – All Trails

Trail update: Had both Snowdogs out this morning and it took hours to slog through just the Demo, Bridge, Twins, part of Hub and Trial & Air bike trails. To call them groomed and rideable would be a total lie. We are exhausted and giving up for the day. I’m going to pick up a…

Trail Update – Monday, February 11th – All Trails

Trail update: Perfect timing – the snow started just as the last skier came in for the freestyle leg of the Turtle River Pursuit on Sunday. In all, we picked up 3-4″ of fluff and groomed the snowshoe and ski trails and set new track today (the bike trail was not groomed). It sounds like…

Trail Update – Tuesday, February 5th – All Trails

Trail update: We got hit with rain and freezing rain overnight that did a pretty good job of glazing up the trails, bringing down a lot of debris and bending branches into the trail. I spent the day cleaning up the ski and snowshoe trails, lopping the most offensive branches (hoping a majority will spring…

Trail update: Time to come out of hibernation – temperatures are back above 0 (and stay above 0 for the next few days), sun is out and trails are in excellent shape. We haven’t picked up any fresh snow since we groomed on Tuesday but I did scratch up the skate lanes this morning.
