Snow Cover: 2 inches average on the trail
Date of Report: January 21, 2017
A week ago we had incredible trails. However – Ma Nature has not been kind since then. We have had daytime temps in the middle 30s to low 40s. Yesterday and again today – we have had rain & drizzle off and on. The trails are all pretty much soft to say the least. High traffic exposed areas are brown, mushy, and mucky. Further away – deeper in the woods they are still pretty good. The sections where we have logging going on have suffered as well.
There is a little good news for next week. Temps are supposed to stay below freezing starting next Wednesday night. We are also supposed to see a little snow next Wednesday and into Thursday.
Our hope for right now is that the base does not get too torn up this weekend. Then we can get it leveled out again before the temps drop again next week – freezing down a nice level base again. Then lets all do a snow dance. If this all happens – it will carry us into February.
