Trail Report #12 Winter 2012-2013

Trail report is very much the same as last week’s report. There has been some snow over the last several days but not significant. Groomer operators have been out and done what they can. The big storm of Wednesday and Thursday didn’t/won’t leave any significant snow. Some sections are fine and conditions are good, other sections are definitely lacking snow. The power line has stretches where there is little to no snow. Trails on logging roads have snow cover for cooling and lubrication. It is especially true in the open areas that saw very little additional accumulation whereas the protected areas got snow that covered the icy base. Groomer operators have been out and done what they can with the snow that remains. Flurries with minimal additional accumulation has been the weather pattern this week. Our trails are quite smooth but can be very slippery with light snow on top of an ice packed trail. Overall trail rating is fair to good. Keep in mind that the trail base is ice and that there is a light snow cover on top. This means curves are especially slippery. Suggest that you have good carbides and track studs. :cry: :cry:
