Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Plenty of SNOW - Crusty
Date of Report: February 8, 2020
Area Report:

February 8, 2020 – 7:10am – 3 Cloudy 

For the most part Fair due to icy conditions

Lake Effect Snow yesterday brought a schiff of SNOW.  Enough to cover the vehicle but not much more.  Today no SNOW in the forecast.  High of 21 today.  9 tonight.  Tomorrow SNOW moving in. 1-3 inches in the forecast.  Best report of the morning is just a little bit of the evil sun this morning.  Then cloudy.

Traffic picked up again yesterday.  Found groups not as large as the past 2 weeks but still plenty of sleds out there.  Conditions are crusty icy so please slow down.  Most have loose SNOW on top.  Did not find as much burn through as I thought.  Just a few corners here & there where they face south.  Some corners are shiny ice. So, yep slow down.  Stay right on your side everywhere.

As the day went on trails were choppy especially northside of town & west. Some areas with moguls in the frozen swamp areas.

More riding today plan a short trip north & a bit east for breakfast.  Let you know what I found tomorrow.
