Snowmobile Trail Report

Date: February 23
Trail Conditions: Poor

We just rode through sections of trail 2 (trail goes to Boulder Jct) between Smokey’s and the intersection on trail 6.  Then we rode north and then back south of that intersection towards Winchester and back towards MW on trail 6.  We found 6″ + standing water over an ice base of the swamp section.   Some pretty tough riding to navigate (almost like water skipping)  We need some cold weather to firm this up to make it safer.   The County will be voting Monday on whether to stay open or temporarily close.  I will let you know as soon as I do.  I would discourage riding through the areas I mentioned.  Our trails remain in Poor condition.

We got 2″ of heavy wet snow last night, we are supposed to start getting substantial snow tonight through tomorrow.   I am heading out soon to check conditions and will update later today.   If we get the snow they are talking about, we should be able to get out and Pan the trails tomorrow night.   At that point our trails could possibly be upgraded to fair.   But lets see what happens.

The trails took a hit from the sun and warm weather over the weekend.   There’s still decent snow in the woods, but exposed areas and road crossings are bad.   The forecast is for cooler temperatures and snow later this week.  I believe we’ll be riding again in a week or so I’ll be updating again mid week.
