Although we need more, we’re thankful for the snow we got overnight. It’s about an inch of new stuff–pretty light and fluffy. We need more snow before we can groom but the south end of our trail system is actually in decent shape. There’s a little more snow down that direction and traffic has been light. We’re still dealing with water holes in a few spots on the north part of Trail 76. You’ll see a sign saying “WET AREA” right before the largest hole. They all should be frozen enough now to support snowmobile traffic. We’re in the mid-20’s and light snow is falling. The radar shows snow over us but the weather people say it will taper off this afternoon. We’ve got a light wind out there but overall it’s comfortable riding weather. Tonight we’ll dip down to single digits and may see a little light snow. So there you have it–conditions are good at the south end of Indian River and fair as you head north of town (just not as much snow). Enjoy your day out there and THINK SNOW!…Are you interested in a volunteer leadership position in our grooming club? We need a dedicated volunteer to assist the club president and learn the ropes before he retires. For more information visit our website and send an email. Thank you!
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!
