Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 8" +
Date of Report: February 7, 2023
The trails have been holding up quite well, even with the lack of good snow. Most trails remain flat, but corners are getting more icy and difficult to navigate.
The Barnstormers took a break from grooming yesterday & today in order to catch up on some maintenance. Traffic has slowed considerably since the weekend, so we’re still in pretty good shape. The weather this week is bringing us some unwelcome warmer temps. As I write this, it is 34 degrees and mostly sunny. Tomorrow is forecast to hit 40 degrees. We don’t expect highs below freezing until Friday, when there is a chance of light snow.
We’ll resume grooming tomorrow unless the warmer temps keep us off the trails. In that case, we’d start again on Thursday.
Our groomers had a couple incidences this past weekend where sleds nearly hit us. Folks, our equipment is lit up like the city of Chicago! How can you not see us in plenty of time to slow down? We might sound like a broken record, but PLEASE slow down and be aware of the conditions. Save your speed for the lakes. Stay safe on the trails!
TRAIL CLOSURE NOTICE: Due to ongoing logging operations, the Barnstormer’s trail #51 is CLOSED between TIN 344 and 353! DO NOT RIDE THIS SECTION OF TRAIL!
Mark your calendars for the final Barnstormer Fundraising Event of the season!
