Welcome to the trail reports. Click a trail report below to get more detail. We try to update as frequently as possible and as major changes occur.
- Always ride in control! March 18, 2018
Today we had a close call, in an otherwise great day of riding. While we were approaching a corner, another rider was going far too fast and couldn’t make it and ended up going straight into the snow off the trail. Fortunately he ended up going behind my wife and her sled and my son and I we’re able to stop. This could have been far worse.
I’m sharing, because I hope at least one rider who rides like this one did might change their riding without having to have a near miss or an actual accident. Everyone wants to enjoy their ride and also enjoy a ride the following day. So please, ride for the trails and conditions. If you can’t see what is up ahead, slow down. There is a time and place for speed and it is not when you can’t see far ahead. You should always be able to stop for turns or any unexpected hazard that might be in the trail. Just imagine if we had been in the groomer, not on sleds? This would have been a collision for sure. So please, ride within control and speed appropriate for the trail and conditions at all times.
To the rider, I hope this was a valuable lesson learned. We all do stupid things, we just need not repeat them.
- Ride while you can! March 16, 2018
Trails are in very good shape now. Due to the past warm ups and rain though, the ground underneath and water isn’t frozen. So there are some spots where there’s water/mud and slush, but everything else looks really good and has very good snow cover, especially the higher elevation trails. Trails in the valley have less snow, but still decent cover. We’ve done a lot of grooming over the past few days, but given the depth in some areas, you might not even know it!
Enjoy the riding while you can! This is the best we’ve had in awhile!
- Latest trail update March 10, 2018
Last couple of nights we have been out grooming. We would have liked to get some grooming done during the day yesterday as well, but it was too warm. Trails are in good shape in most areas, with some bad spots scattered throughout. Expect rough spots at any time and ride with caution as always.
Here’s some pictures I took while out for a ride yesterday.
- Open with caution March 3, 2018
We did get snow yesterday. It was not as much as we’d like, but enough that we can say trails are open with caution. Conditions are variable with the best riding up high.
If you come across a section of bare trail, please turn around. Do not ride on bare grass, it will damage the land – please respect our landowners or we won’t have trails to ride.
Hopefully we get more snow this week, looks like next weekend might be better (fingers crossed!)
