Default Trail Conditions 1-11-18

Ya. I have no idea. It is currently 50 degrees at my house. Yes, that is not a type-o, it is 50 degrees.

It hasn't rained a ton yet, but is still supposed to off and on through the day.

The woods maybe should survive North of the Burma Grade, so the North 1/2 of the system. I am thinking the RR Grade South of Moran is done for sure. Castle Rock Road was being plowed, so that is done as well without even looking at it.

Updates today will do us no good. It is supposed to go below freezing late this evening. We may run groomers, we may not. It is all up in the air right now.

50 degrees. Grass in my yard. I thought we were off to a better start then this, but apparently not.

It topped 55d today at lunchtime. Still 48d here at 6:30pm.

We are very likely going to completely suspend grooming until we get more snow.
