Waiting for SNOW to move in late Friday into Saturday. Looks like SNOW off & on Saturday. 2 plus inches. Trails could use more…Start Dancin! Trails conditions are all over the place & change quickly. Icy corners & even straightaways. Open areas have burn through areas along with trails that are on the northside of a road. Even in February that sun is warm.
The Groomer Tracking System AP (GTS) shows grooms left the Groomer Barn along Hwy 45N near the Snowmobile Derby Track last night & did a FULL GROOMING session with the exception of a short club trail called Uncle Kent’s which starts along Hwy G north of town & connects to trail 10W.
Best riding until SNOW moves in is north & woods trails. When you meet a groomer move over & stop to let them by.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. To be safe stay by the orange reflective barrels. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water far from the barrels.
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! Trails Need More Fresh SNOW
See ya on the trails!
