Default Trail Conditions 2-18-19

Good, bad and ugly.

Good amount of snow. Bad snow conditions. Ugly trails at times.

I will find out later today when Groomer #5 is going to be back.

I will get more trail info out later today.

The breakdown is, best trails are in Iggy, OK trails in the center part of the system, and choppy near Trout Lake, Caffey and Epoufette.

Here's a couple pics from my run on the South loop last night.

Trails were setting up very nicely with the overnight cold temps.

First two pics, north of Worth road and South of the Burma grade.

Last pic was intersection of Castle Rock Rd and the RR Grade on my way back into town.

Lets give you folks a contrast in seasons, 17/18 vs 18/19.

We groomed for 3 weeks this January, I think we started on the 8th.

In just those 3 weeks in January, we came within 1 day of grooming last seasons TOTAL mileage. Without doing the math, I am pretty sure we have already doubled last seasons total.

Long range forecast is for another 24in of snow in 3 to 4 storms over the next 10 days.

Got into town saturday night. Grade was rough on the way out Sunday morning and somewhat worse at night. Monday morning the grade out was flat. I also have to agree most of the straits trails we were on were fine.
Funny with pond hockey hardly any machines/trailers around the motels that I could see. But tons of traffic out to the island. They were coming) from somewhere and probably right down the RR grade.
