Snow Cover: 4 inches avg
Date of Report: December 11, 2016
Please stay tuned for our trails to officially open. At this point they will NOT open tomorrow (12-12-2016). Please remember: when a target date is announced in advance of our trail opening, it is always followed with “conditions permitting”. Currently what we have on the ground, if it were to be panned, would not leave a decent trail. It would end up hit & miss and actually – mostly miss – with a lot of rough sections which would be dangerous to ride. The northern part of the county does have more snow than the southern part.
At least speaking for the southern part of this county, it is just as well that we don’t have a lot of snow on the ground. It was a wet fall and we need the forecasted sub-zero cold for the following week to freeze up wet areas of our trail beds. Too much early snow prevents the trail beds from freezing.
As I already mentioned in a different post: Most area lakes have frozen over. However, it will be sometime before any are marked with a crossing. Until the crossing is marked – NEVER EVER cross or go out onto the ice!!!
Stay tuned for an announcement of when our trails will OFFICIALLY open! Another target date will be announced soon!
