Trail Report #10 Winter 2013-2014

Although groomer operators have been grooming regularly, the trails have almost too much snow. Because of all the snow it has been difficult to pull out all of the moguls. The top layer of snow (our nice base is somewhere way below the surface) is also quite dry and with a little traffic it soon becomes mushy and doesn’t hold up well. Reminder that we groom DAY and night. Thus you should anticipate meeting the groomer at any time. When operating near the groomer please remember to use extreme caution and be patient. Moving the groomer off the trail into deep snow may cause it to get stuck (they do get stuck) and it is no small task to get it back on the trail and usually that makes a big mess of the trail. The groomer operators will do what they can to provide room for you to pass. The longer days are also causing the trails to warm up more and the shorter nights do not allow for complete freezing. If riders can keep their speed down then the trails will last longer and more people can enjoy them.

The logging operation at EX-42 South America Pond Rd has ended. There is a logging operation on the F-2 trail at it heads into Guildhall village from the north. Every effort has been made to keep the snowmobile trail separate for this logging operation. There is road sharing on the old railroad bed up to EX-541.
