Snow Cover: 8"-9" in the woods
Date of Report: December 22, 2016
We received about 2″ of wet snow yesterday & groomers were out last night. Trails today are still conservatively rated fair with some good areas mixed in. There is a chance of light snow tomorrow then Sunday/Monday looks questionable. Let’s hope we stay on the cold side of the question. At intersection #718 (45 & 8E/8W), the center fork is 8E but somehow is labeled 8W. The brown signs are correct. I’ll try to get this sign corrected soon.
Twin Haven via the new trail; Trail is nice except for the last 3/4 mile where it turns off the grade. This section must be ridden slowly. For those running along the power lines N from North Twin boat ramp, you now have a stop sign at the grade, E/W traffic has the right of way.
Lakes are not marked yet, stay off until they are marked.
News and Reports:
Don’t forget you need a WI trail permit to ride the state’s groomed trail system. Aggressive riding causes more trail damage than slower, less aggressive riding. Until the base gets built up & we get more snow to work with, groomers can only do so much to repair damage.
