Short report this morning but good news to report!   Temps have dropped & SNOW is moving in around midnight tonight.  4 inches in the forecast!   In the meantime trails are snow covered.  Yesterday saw another day of temps above 30 so the snow was slushy.  For the most part all trails were covered.  This morning all is frozen making for a good base for the new SNOW!  Temps will now stay in the 20’s during the day & teens at night for the next week. Then will drop into the teens during the day & single digits at night.   Looks like Winter is back.

Because of the warm temps & sleet over the last 2 days no grooming overnight.

Eagle & Catfish Lake trails are open & marked & still safe.  Expect very slippery riding & some surface slush from melted SNOW or bare ice.  Slow down. Always stay by the orange reflective barrels to be safe.

Last, off trail riding is a big problem.  PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL. 


See ya on the trails real soon!
