Trail Update

We have had a lot of sleds around over the weekend!  The trail base is holding up quite well where we’ve seen it.  We will begin grooming early tomorrow morning to have the system smooth for the weekend!  Great temps forecasted!  Thanks – grooming schedule on page 3.

Friday trail update

We had quite a week!   Significant drifting, trees down and deep snow!   We also had a few minor breakdowns.  We got everything groomed except the Chippewa, Woodland, Hunt Lake loop this week.   Check website for updates.  Thanks.
