Snow Cover: 8" - 9" in the woods
Date of Report: December 23, 2016
We received about 1+″ of wet snow this afternoon & evening. Both groomers are out tonight. Trails today are still conservatively rated fair with some good areas mixed in. Sunday/Monday forecast looks questionable. Let’s hope we stay on the cold side of the question. The incorrect sign at intersection #718 (45 & 8E/8W has been corrected.
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.
Expect most all businesses to close early Saturday night & be closed Sunday. If you are out riding during that timeframe be sure you have enough fuel & carry snacks/ water.
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.
