Snowmobile Trail Report for Saturday, December 31, 2016

I just wanted to give a quick update. We picked up 1.5 – 2 inches of snow last night. While it’s not a lot of snow it will help the trails and give the groomers more to work with. Since neither of us rode, I’ll repost yesterday’s report below:

 

December 30th Trail Report: I went out for a short ride hitting some Sayner and St. Germain trails. Both of these clubs had groomed last night. Trails were packed in better this morning but will get softer as more sleds go through. Still found corners that were pushed out and icy and carbides scraped. Also was scraping on some trails that don’t have a decent base. More trails were snirty and getting browner. With the heavy traffic this weekend, trails will get beat up and bumpy. I did find several trails that were all white and great to ride and had corners that had plenty of snow.

I’m going to give the trails an overall fair rating. Some were good while others were fair with a poor stretch here and there.  There are still some thin areas – mainly on the insides of corners where the carbides will scrape. It’s a mixed bag out there. You will find some very good to good to ok to fair to poor  areas.

More lakes are now marked with most St. Germain area lakes marked too. Lakes have a lot of hardened slush so be careful.

Now that we have more of a base on the trails it won’t take much snow to see the trails move into the good to very good category. A few inches would really be nice…
