Grooming update

We have so much snow!   This week is slow going as we have a lot of drifting, and high banks to open at road crossings.  We have two Cats without drags going ahead to open up road crossings and cut down drifts.  Two Cats are following with grooming drags. We will not get entire system groomed this week with the amount of snow to move, but we’ll do what we can!

Be sure to check the website as to what is groomed.  Ride with caution.

trail update/grooming plan

We got more snow today and wind with it.  We have plenty of snow!

With the drifting, we will be running 2 Cats without a drag on Wed and Thurs.   The groomers will be following those cats later.   We have a very busy schedule planned, and should get most of the system groomed by Friday night.

Trail Update

We have 6-8″ of new snow, with more coming tomorrow!   We will resume grooming on Wednesday after the wind goes down.  Schedule will be posted tomorrow.   Trails in Douglas County haven’t had this much snow in ten years!   Schedule your trip here now!  Enjoy your ride!

The Staff at Lake Carlos State Park has asked that snowmobilers please be respectful by staying on designated snowmobile trails and off ski trails!
