Trail Conditions: Excellent
Snow Cover: 8 to 10 inches in the woods
Date of Report: January 12, 2018
The area received between 4 to 6 inches of heavy/wet snow yesterday. FINALLY something we can form a better base with!!! We were out last night smoothing and packing this white gold, so currently, it just doesn’t get any better!!! The timing of it just couldn’t get any better. It was warm, we got great snow, we groomed it, and the temps have dropped!!! This does not mean there won’t still be some icy corners, so as always, ride with caution!!!
Please continue to be cautious on the lakes. The weight of more snow can force the ice down which pushes water up through cracks forming a slush pocket. The slush pockets can come and go.
News and Reports:
There are logging operations in the following locations: Trail 9 between Hwy 70 (TIN 364) and Ross Lake Rd (TIN 225), Trail 7 between Wharton Lake Rd (TIN 218) and Old K (Tin 217), and Trail 7 between Hwy K (TIN 216) and Lake Laura Rd (TIN 214). There is also logging in the Jean Lake Rd area of Trail 7 North, between TINS 227 & 800. That logging should be in the woods off the trail.
(TIN = Trail Intersection Numbers)
Please watch out for these 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.
