Another 5-7″ of snow dropped overnight, and it’s dense. Groomers ran again last night and the trails are spectacular. Expect heavy traffic this holiday weekend–ride defensively. Temps are in the low 20’s but feel like single digits due to the wind. We’ve still got the Winter Weather advisory until 7 pm which could dump another 2-4″! Local schools are closed too. Winds will continue blowing and gusting up to 35 mph. Dress warm, riders. The weather will quiet down after tonight. We’re expecting a mix of clouds and sun with temps in the low 20’s all weekend.
Visit our website at www.justgroomit.org or stop by Burt Lake Marina for details on joining the Indian River Snowmobile Grooming club with a membership donation. Every dollar we get goes right back into the grooming operation. All our drivers and officers are volunteers. Last year we had about 65 individual members and 35 corporate (business) members. If you know a business who’d be a great corporate sponsor please let us know. We have hats and t-shirts (short & long sleeve) for sale too. Even when we can’t groom we still have operational expenses like insurance, two-way radio communication subscriptions, equipment repair, utilities and more. We store and work on the grooming in a building 100% paid for by your generous donations; our equipment is only yards from the DNR trailhead. Thank you!
