Default Trail Conditions 4-09-18

Yes, trail conditions on teh second week of April, when we had a pathetic year is just crazy. Mild temps over the weekend have kept the core of our system in OK shape. I did not check this morning, but I am going to guess we have a couple miles of RR Grade South of Moran that are in rough shape. And other then teh full sun corners out there, the rest of the system should be in rideable March condition shape until we get rain mid-week.

So, that leave a few extra days of riding and it will be over when we get teh rain/40s mid week right? MAYBE NOT! A huge storm system is developing for the coming weekend that just may turn the entire UP back into rideable conditions. I know this is a long term out there forecast, but one model is showing 20-30" of new snow for the West UP ,a dn 18-20" for us! It will be 50-60 degrees downstate and 30s and a blizzard in the UP.

You may not want to sumerize that sled just yet, after the biggest seasons snow we had last week, we may double or triple that amount this coming weekend.
