Default Weather Conditions 11-25-13

Technically we are a week from the trails opening, and are getting a pretty decent November - winter storm. We are getting coated with a wet system snow that would typically be a good base building type of storm. Supposed to be 2-4 by the end later tonight. Winds are crazy again, and 1/4 mile vis is all we have. Wish the ground was all frozen first though. It isn't as bad as last year where everything was constantly melting from the bottom up, but I would like to see more frost in the ground before we get an insulating snow.
Kinda weird, trails open on Dec 1, and I personally don't really expect it, or not used to it anymore. Just so used to getting going more towards Christmas. Will we have a December riding season? Not sure. Would have liked to have the next 2 weeks to get every last detail ready to go, but if the snow is here to stay we will ramp things up and start building our highways.

The groomer came across his first set of snowmobiles today at 2:20 pm.

Bobby is out brushing with the groomer and had a couple sleds go by.

I would not recommend it. There is just a little snow, but no base at all, water mud and stuff sticking through. Only sleds out are local kids with beater sleds.
