Default Trail Conditions 12-01-14

Welcome to the official start of the 2014 snowmobile season! Trails officially open today, and they are perfectly ridable... with a atv

After a fantastic early start with over 2 feet of snow 2 weeks ago, rain and warmer temps have hammered everything down to mostly grass and ice. We will need quite a bit of snow before we will start rolling the groomers. The ice base is starting to form well however and it is really only a matter of time. We would need less then a foot to get things going.

The forecast is nice, but not good for trail building. Mostly sun and 27-32d temps are going to just barely hold what we have right now. We will likely need a storm to get things going like we need to.

First groomer run was on 12-17 last year, and it was an epic season for sure. Keep your heads up, we will be sledding in no time.

I was on the RR grade up to Trout Lake on Monday night, and there is just about ridable snow on the trail, but nothing good.

An extra inch or 2 last night. Forecast for the coming days has no significant snow in sight, so will be some time yet to get the machines on the trail. No current need to burn fuel or tear up equipment.
