27 degrees this morning under a clear blue sky. The last couple of days have been the same so no new snow.
I always hate this time of year to announce this but I think its time. Unless something really strange happens……we are done grooming :(. A couple of the guys have gone out the last couple of days and said its a waste of time and energy, plus its beatin up the equipment. All our trails are hard and icey and flat. Don`t get me wrong, there is good ridin to be had for this weekend if you`re thinking about coming UP for one last ride but the temps are supposed to get up into the 40`s and 50`s by Sunday and Monday. This will toast our trails that are already thin. Off trail ridin should still be good for another week or so though.
Mannnn…….we are bummed. We can usually groom thru March. Ole Man Winter sure was an A$$ this season. We only got one good month outa him!
Unless something crazy happens this will be my last report on the trails. I`ll jump on here from time to time and let ya`ll know about any brushing parties we are planning for next fall or give you any important news you may want to know.
Take care and God Bless. See ya`ll next fall.

31 degrees this morning and cloudy. It looks like the weather guessers have changed their minds and it will “only” get to the low 30`s until Sunday then jump up into the 40`s so this means this weekend should be ok to come UP and ride but expect late season conditions. Here`s what went on yesterday…..
As far as I know Mike H. was the only guy to run. He did the Falls trail #45 and called it fair. He did tell me there are some pretty good icey spots in corners and such. Zach is supposed to run the Pine Stump trail #8 today.
There still is decent snow in the woods for off trail riding but I`m thinking after this weekend with the temps into the 40`s, and I`ve seen some reports of gettin into the 50`s for next week, that our trails might just be done after this weekend. I will let you know when we are done grooming, not by our choice but mean ole Mother Nature. We would love to be able to keep going until the end of March!
All I have for today.
