Groomer Report


Trails were groomed Monday and last weekend.  The scheduled groom for tonight is cancelled due to the warm, rainy weather.  I will post when we resume grooming if it happens.  It’s that time of year where the season might be done.  Time and weather will tell.




Trails still be groomed on our regular schedule and will continue as long as weather cooperates.  Our trail gets lots of trFfic so on weekends they do get bumpy by end of day  We are grooming on schedule, and trails are in great shape, excellent in the am.



We are grooming our regular grooming days as long as we have snow.  Trails are in great shape



Trail was groomed Friday and Saturday.  Today temp hit 42 and lots of snow melting. Trail is soft which will not hold a smooth surface.  Trail was excellent but with temps over 40 and rain tomorrow, they will be poor real quick .  Hopefully it gets cold and we get more snow


Trails were groomed overnight.  With the cold weather, they set up nicely.  Plenty of snow, trails are EXCELLENT!



Trail groomed Friday and last night.  With the new snow, conditions are excellent.


Our trails were groomed Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday night.  We could use more snow, but trails have a good base and very rideable.  We had our trail stop yesterday and had 245 riders go by with majority of them  stopping.  Everyone complementing how well our trail is, thanking us for our work.  We want to thank all the riders for enjoying our trail. we will have another trail stop next Saturday 1/26/19 10:00-3:00 at the 6-7 split.  Stop by and see us. Check us out on Facebook, Rosco-Higgins ORV and Snowmobile Club



We have a rental tractor delivered  yesterday and our trail was groomed last night  turned out decent but we need snow.  Stop by Saturday at the 6-7 split for dogs and hot chocolate and meet some of the guys that do the work on our trail for you to enjoy!  Starts at 10:00 am




Our groomer caught on fire last Friday while grooming.  Until we get ours repaired or a loaner, we are unable to groom.  Ride safe.




I rode our trail every day since we got snow on the 1st.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday , the snow held up, but Thursday, the sun came out, and temp went up and the trail deteriorated. Sides of roads going bare.  The trail is rideable but spring like conditions. The forecast is calling for another system starting Monday . We need snow!



Finally got some snow.  Got 7 inches overnight. Went riding and lots of traffic of traffic on the trail. Jeff is grooming tonight.  With the rain coming before the snow, and it’s 3 degrees out right now, so the groom should freeze up good and give us a good base.  Keep dancing and hope we get more snow!



Trails ready for snow.  Raining  out right now.



  1. Following is our regular grooming schedule. Weather and snow conditions permitting, we will groom our trail on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.   Also, as long as we have no equipment break downs.



We have out trail stops planned for both Saturdays during Tip Up Town, 1/19/2019 and 1/26/2019 at the 6-7 split.  We will have hot dogs and hot chocolate to give away starting around 11:00am.  Our grooming equipment will  be on site for everyone to see what keeps the trails smooth. kids, both young and old,  can  get in and sit in the seat and take pictures .  So stop by and get some dogs and hot chocolate and meet some of the guys who volunteer to maintain the trails for your enjoyment.
