Default Trail Conditions 1-05-17

Status quo around here. We got about 1" of new snow last night, and things are holding steady. Cold Icy, and thin, but rideable. Top it off with 6" of system snow and you can change 'fair' to 'excellent' in 12 hours. Nothing new to groom out there, and with the ice base, and little snow, not much of a reason to groom right now out of Iggy - it is thin, but ridable. I have only seen a total of 3 out of town sleds by my office, so not much traffic on the lower loop.

Ken will be running the North section Cut River to Rexton & Trout Lake Friday night, and depending on snow conditions, we will let that sit after that if it isn't needed.

There are no major hazards to report anywhere on our 101 miles. They are plowing Cast Rock & Round Lake roads, the Southeast couple miles of Trail #471. It is passable, very thin snow, and icy. It isn't the all-time favorite trail that we know and love, but you can ride it out of town.

Keep the snow dance up - we can use it. If you are OK with smooth trails, thin conditions, with an ice base and want to be almost by yourself, then head on UP. Otherwise, I will let you know when we get that magic 6" base, and are in super-highway status.

Remember the Bent Ski Classic returns on February 11th. Mark your calendar, get your reservations, and plan a fun day on the Straits Trails!
