Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 18 inches (+/-) in the woods.
Date of Report: February 20, 2018
Well weather system “Oliver” did not produce nearly as much snow as forecasters had said it could as it just never really seemed to get going and died out too quickly. We still ended up with about 1 1/2 inches. It is still better than nothing and will do more good than you might think. We will be grooming this week Thursday and though the whole weekend. Conditions remain very icy so please ride safe – adjust your speed accordingly. Our trails average from fair to good. They are fair at best near town and good to very good away from town.
News and Reports:
There are logging operations in the following locations: Trail 9 between Hwy 70 (TIN 364) and Ross Lake Rd (TIN 225). There is also logging in the Jean Lake Rd area of Trail 7 North, between TINS 227 & 800. The logging, in this area, should be in the woods away from the trail.
(TIN = Trail Intersection Numbers)
Please watch out for logging areas. Slow down and stay out of the way of the loggers. DO NOT hassle the loggers. They have the right to close down sections of any trail they are logging near or using. If they get hassled too much, that is exactly what they will do – shut that trail down. The logging operations can run at anytime of the day or night. Loggers use some of the trails to drive in and out. So please be watchful in logging areas for trucks on the trail. Logging operations in any of these areas can start and/or stop without warning. So even if you ride in an area and there was nothing going on one day – it can start back up the next day.
We had a great fundraiser this past Sunday at Vinchi’s Hillside. A BIG thanks to Jim & Nancy!!!
