Snow & Trail Condition Update - February 15, 2019
Lots of snow this week. Another 9-12" was received early in the week, and groomers are getting out to get the trails in great shape for the weekend.
The weather looks awesome for some riding this weekend.
With all of the snow there is a great cover over the established base. Groomers have been out, but not have gotten to all of the trails to pack down the foot of new snow. Trails are open throughout the entire County.
Use caution whenever you ride, and expect some rough spots. No ice should ever be considered safe.
Look for updates as conditions change, and we receive -more updates.
Stay on the trails.
Cross-Country Ski Trails
More snow this week has only improved what were already good conditions.
Today's Report from the Blue Hills Trails -
Lots of deep fresh snow, essentially ungroomed. As an alternative to skiing, tromp our snowshoe trails.
Late Monday afternoon (Feb. 11) our workhorse John Deere Gator suffered a major mechanical problem related to its Camoplast tracks. Repair parts are on the way from Washington State. We will try to repair the Gator on site, hopefully having it up & running by late Thursday or Friday.
Our big Arctic Cat Bearcat snowmobile wasn't up to the challenge Wednesday. Some packing was done with the snowmobile alone, but nothing is finish groomed. Our grooming will be significantly limited until both of our regular groomers can work simultaneously. Bear with us.
Today's Report from the Sisters Farm Trails - Jim was hard at grooming trails at sister today. Ski trails rolled and are pretty good. We will do another pass with groomer tomorrow and they should be great. Bike trail will be groomed up by the weekend. Get out and play!
Ladysmith Area Trails
Don't forget the Blue Hills Trails and Flambeau Mine Trails (Ladysmith) have snowshoe paths, and the Sisters Farm Trails by Ladysmith are grooming for Fat Tire Biking
Christie Mountain downhill ski area is also open and reporting excellent conditions.
Stay in the loop!
