Trail Report #6 Winter 2012-2013
There has been some snow this week past week but not significant amounts. The trails have been holding up well with the temperatures in the deep freeze. There is certainly a good base. Overall the trails are good and riding should be adequate. The severe cold freezes the snow and means there is little lubrication. Please keep in mind that the trails hold up much better if you keep your speed down. The weather forecast is for cool weather and snow showers throughout the weekend. Our groomer operators are preparing the trails as best they can in the light snow conditions. Riders should be careful because water bars, stumps, and rocks are close to the trail surface. All wet spots should be frozen.

Reminder that VAST has new signage rules for this year. The change involves fewer signs making each one more important than before. There are “Slow” signs which mean just that SLOW DOWN. There is a reason for the sign and everyone should be paying attention otherwise you may find out - up close - what the caution is about.

Note that several trails to the north of our area are closed. Check the VAST web site for more information. Route 1 is closed from EX 52 to EX 522.
