At last some good news or at least a good forecast, one that is almost a sure bet. Widespread snow will fall overnight and throughout the day tomorrow. Predictions are in the 4-6″ range with locally heavier amounts. I hope we live locally but will be happy with whatever we get.
The groomers have been running with the objective of bringing the outside radius of the corners back to the inside and to get the trails flat in anticipation of the snow in the forecast. Leaving the trails alone over the weekend in terms of grooming seems to have worked based on the feedback that we were able to get from sledders.
As I see it right now the groomers will finally go on our normal winter schedule this weekend. We will be panning the new snow starting tomorrow and will keep at it until the weekend traffic hits.
A word of caution, it will take a lot more snow than what is in the forecast to make the ice a non-issue. The corners will still be icy, the straights will continue to be icy, and the ice will be somewhere below you, how far below you is up to the snow God or Goddess, or maybe they’re a couple, who knows.
We anticipate improved conditions. There may even be a ” good ” rating in our near future and for those of you that have read me over the years you know that means the trails are actually good.
I will get out another quick report on Thursday after the snow quits and I get a chance to see how it’s panning out.
Ride Often and Please be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls.
