Groomer Report

Tucked Away for a Short Time – Hopefully!!!
Do your snow dances!
No new white stuff again this morning. Heaviest of the snow is still on the Northeast section of our trails , Miners Castle and Shingleton areas. Yesterday Operator Chris took the Pisten Bully and full size Dubie Groomer East and North on Trail 8 to 7 miles North of Shingleton where we meet up with Seney’s section of trails. There are a few deep waterholes that were broken through and packed in as good as possible with the limited snow.
Today work will be done with the Pisten Bully, building a “shelf” along H-58 on the Wetmore Spur – use caution there.
Unless Mother Nature surprises us, the machines will be tucked away as there is no new snow forecast for the next 7 days. We need the wind to shift out of the North to fire up that “Superior” Lake Effect Engine, she’s been warmed up and ready to go.
Today’s forecast is for a sunny 30 degrees, 10 mph SW winds.
Again – the base is thin in most areas, especially as you head West of Au Train. so please ride conservatively and not dig holes when you you accelerate. A hard flat trail base makes for a great season of grooming and riding.
Keep Snow Dancing and we will continue to do what we can in preparation. Stay tuned for updates!
